Josephine Tey is often referred to as the mystery writer for people who don't like mysteries. Her skills at character development and mood setting, and her tendency to focus on themes not usually touched upon by mystery writers, have earned her a vast and appreciative audience. In Daughter of Time, Tey focuses on the legend of Richard III, the evil hunchback of British history accused of murdering his young nephews. While at a London hospital recuperating from a fall, Inspector Alan Grant becomes fascinated by a portrait of King Richard. A student of human faces, Grant cannot believe that the man in the picture would kill his own nephews. With an American researcher's help, Grant delves into his country's history to discover just what kind of man Richard Plantagenet was and who really killed the little princes. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Ingenious, stimulating and very enjoyable" Sunday Times "Josephine Tey has always been absolutely reliable in producing original and mysterious plots with interesting characters and unguessable endings" Spectator --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.See all Product Description
