Mystery Of The Princes

3.09 of 5 stars 3.09  ·  rating details  ·  23 ratings  ·  4 reviews
Whether Richard III murdered his two young nephews, the "Princes in the Tower, " has long been a tantalizing question. This book gathers together an immense amount of historical material along with the results of unique research. It provides a study in power politics which suggests a Watergate kind of cover-up in the fifteenth century.
Paperback, 215 pages
Published February 1st 1986 by Academy Chicago Publishers (first published 1978)

I couldn't finish this book. It was so boring. How did this author manage to make such an interesting subject so dull?

1 star - Did not finish
I have read lots on this topic - Kendall, Ross, Gairdner, etc. - so I know the topic. This is one of the most tedious books I have ever read and it took me forever to get through it..I can not believe it won the Crime Writer's Association Gold Dagger award for nonfiction - was there no one who wrote an interesting book that year?

This is a real mystery - one that will probably never be solved - it changed the course of English history - so it is exciting, important, interesting, and even - in the
Very scholarly and well researched book on the disappearance of the two little princes. Lots of primary source material, I'm still not sure who killed them, or if they were murdered.
