Inhaltsangabe: Alison Weir investigates one of the most enduring murder mysteries in English history -- the death of the lost Princes in the tower, nephews of Richard III, whose body has recently been discovered.
The story of the death, in sinister circumstances, of the boy-king Edward V and his younger brother Richard, Duke of York, is one of the most fascinating murder mysteries in English history. It is a tale with profound moral and social consequences, rich in drama, intrigue, treason, scandal and violence.
In this gripping book Alison Weir re-examines all the evidence -- including that against the Princes' uncle, Richard III, whose body was recently discovered beneath a Leicester car park. She brilliantly reconstructs the whole chain of events leading to their murder and reveals how, why and by whose order they died.
