Non Fiction, History
Weir's brilliant reconstruction of all the evidence brings a 500-year-old whodunnit to a convincing conclusion. 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 her gripping account, Alison Weir re-examines all the evidence including that against the Princes' uncle, Richard III. She brilliantly reconstructs the whole chain of events leading to their murder and reveals how, why and by whose order they died.
