    The Sunne in Splendour por Sharon Kay Penman (LisaMaria_C)
    LisaMaria_C: For me The Daughter of Time and The Sunne in Splendour go hand in hand. The first is the classic mystery "solving" the mystery of the Two Princes in the Tower and the second a sympathetic biographical novel of Richard III which is well-researched and moving.… (más)

    The Murders of Richard III por Elizabeth Peters (Cynara)
    Cynara: Both books are, broadly speaking, mysteries debunking the popular misconceptions around Richard III; Tey's book is entirely concerned with the subject, and Peters' does so as a sort of subplot, in addition to a more traditional mystery. I'd suggest reading Tey first, as her mystery has less to offer once you've read Peters.… (más)

    The Wench is Dead por Colin Dexter (Cynara)
    Cynara: Two hospitalised detectives work through historical mysteries, investigating from their cots. Tey's is the more famous work, and will give you a good education on the ins and outs of the rehabilitation of Richard III, but to my mind, Dexter's book is better.

    Richard the Third por Paul Murray Kendall (myshelves)

    Ricardo III por William Shakespeare (bookwoman247)
    bookwoman247: This is a mystery involving Richard III and the two princes in the tower, and seems to have garnered a bit of respect. It's a great read on its own, and would make a great companion read to Shakespeare's Richard III.

    Royal Blood: King Richard III and the Mystery of the Princes por Bertram Fields (inge87)

    The Black Tower por Louis Bayard (bjappleg8)
    bjappleg8: Both novels use detectives to explore historical mysteries surrounding princes banished to towers and whose fates can never be known for certain.

Inspector Grant is in hospital with a broken leg - and is bored - but his interest is piqued by one of the books given to him. So much so that he spends his time and that of his assistant researching the murder of The Princes in the Tower and of the reign of Richard III.
As Richard III is one of my favourite rulers, and I have spent time studing the era, I really enjoyed this book. ( )

Dammit. I just reviewed "Daughter of Time" by Josephine Tey, but goodreads deleted it when I attempted to post it. Readers might save their reviews to TextEdit or somewhere before posting them, then copy and paste when goodreads eats their reviews. So here we go, again:

Alan Grant of Scotland Yard is in hospital and decides to investigate the fate of two nephews of Richard III imprisoned in the Tower of London in 1483, whereupon they soon disappeared forever. At page 57, we are no closer to discovering their fate than we were at page 1. I give up, then. Second star is in respect of whatever bunch voted this a great detective novel. What do I know.

But we see in Wikipedia that Grant's solution is not that of historians. So I recommend Wikipedia for expert consensus and related history, related history of which Grant may have more (after page 57) than Wikipedia does. I wouldn't know. Wiki has more related history than I need. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Princes_in_the_Tower

An autopsy of Richard III, killed in battle, is interesting. His remains were discovered in 2012 under a parking lot.

Archiv.org has Tey's book for free. Now to copy this to TextEdit.

Excellent! It has been called the best mystery novel ever written. Recommended. ( )

I tried this one in audio and it felt too convoluted. It was interesting enough, but too much information. I should try reading it instead.

⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2
BOOK REVIEW: My primary motivation for reading Josephine Tey’s mystery “Daughter of Time” was because it has been dubbed the greatest historical fiction/mystery of all time. I wanted to determine if the accolade was appropriate. I give it a 3.5 because it lacks any thrilling or apprehensive excitement that other books do. The books main detective is Alan Grant is in hospital laid up with a broken leg for the duration of the novel. Alan Grant is bored to tears when a friend brings him a series of pictures featuring faces of well known people from history. After some consideration Grant settles upon a picture of Richard III and the mystery of who killed the two little prince boys in the Tower. Grant think Richard’s reputation as the monster murderer of these boys is wrong because his face—just isn’t the face of a cruel murderer. Instead, Grant thinks Richard has a conscientious face. The face of a worry worn authoritarian, perhaps a judge. The book takes the reader through Grant’s research when university researcher a Mr. Carradine actually joins in the investigation. Grant directs Carradine’s research. Together they present a truly solid case, exonerating Richard III and logically implicating another person. And, that is the beauty of this book. Tey’s infallible logic; has influenced and changed real historians views, how they teach it, how they write about it. The reasoning presented in a work of fiction is so remarkable—it actually changed the course of history itself. Is it the greatest historical fictional mystery ever written? I think I need to read more of them to offer a fair opinion of that but, if you like to solve a mystery with the author, then you’ll enjoy this book very much. @KatoJustus4 ( )

You don't like to think of a man you've known and admired flung stripped and dangling across a pony like a dead animal.
A frisson of horror may go down one's spine at wholesale destruction but one's heart stays unmoved. A thousand people drowned in floods in China are news: a solitary child drowned in a pond is tragedy.
It was, moreover, the almost-respectable form of historical fiction which is merely history-with-conversation, so to speak. An imaginative biography rather than an imagined story.
