The Princes in the Tower is an intriguing account of the two children of Edward IV and their demise at the hand of their paternal uncle, Richard III. The author Alison Weir does an excellent job of presenting not only credible chroniclers who lived at the time of the murders, but presenting the facts, and motives of those involved in the distressing deathes of young Edward V, and his younger Richard, Duke of York. Ms. Weir has well researched this case, and although the first chapter is a bit tedious, focusing primarily on establishing the credibility of those experts whom she quotes, the book itself is a wonderful, suspense-filled read...I found myself completely engrossed!
