Read in October, 2010

I have a fondness for English history, particularly the Wars of the Roses, so this was right up my alley.

It's a quiet book; the protaganist is stuck in bed after an injury, so the action is mental rather than physical. Inspector Alan Grant, trying to deal with sickroom boredom, decides to solve the mystery of the Princes in the Tower (Edward V and his brother, allegedly murdered by their uncle, Richard III). This is an older book, and scholarship on the subject has evolved, but it's still interesting to read one of the earlier popular defenses of Richard.
