fántastico ! Ya lo había leído pero se me perdió.Es una novela policiaca muy original ya que se intenta resolver un enigma histórico .Muy recomendable !!!
I don't believe that Richard harmed them at all, but what did happen to the Princes? I first read this book over 40 years ago - it reminded me that when I had asked my History teacher what evidence there was against Richard III - I was flattened by her venomous "EVERYBODY knows he murdered the Princes in the Tower!" I was horrified! I have continued to read and listen, the Richard III Society have been a great inspiration - so much to share, especially in the last few years. BUT - there still remains the same mystery - what really happened to the boys? Josephine Tey, by modernising this mystery, reminds us that it is as relevant today as in the fifteenth century. Unlike many ancient mysteries, there are recent leads to this one, as for instance - in the Vatican archives! A wonderful book to bring history alive!
Almost Faultless Defence of Richard iii This is a very clever and thought-provoking story which uses the format of a detection novel to explore Richard's complicity in the deaths of his nephews. The arguments for Richard's innocence in the matter are shrewd and persuasive. The role of Bishop Morton in calumnies against him before and after his death is undeniable. However there are caveats and not all of them are the fault of the author. She died in 1952 so of course doesn't have the same insight as present-day readers. Two items: Dominic Mancini's account of the events of early 1483, discovered in 1934, is nowhere mentioned. Rumours of the Princes deaths were swirling around London at the time, so this flatly contradicts the central plank of the Defence. Second the contention is that Morton is the author of More's history; that being the case why did Richard rage at the Council meeting that sorcery caused his arm to wither? We know that is not true, Morton can't be the witness that More is drawing on. No, Thomas More was fabricating. This is a highly accomplished work and very entertaining.
