    The Sunne in Splendour par 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.… (plus d'informations)

    The Murders of Richard III par 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.… (plus d'informations)

    Mort d'une garce par 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 III par 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.

    We Speak No Treason par Rosemary Hawley Jarman (Imprinted, KayCliff)

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

    La tour noire par 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.

    Yorkists: The History of a Dynasty par Anne Crawford (KayCliff)

    Le fou de Bergerac par Georges Simenon (shaunie)
    shaunie: The detective solves the crime whilst bedridden in both. Both also somewhat overrated?

I don't know what to say about this book. I hate talking about books like this because I can't treat it as purely fiction, nor purely non-fiction. It was well written; it was riveting, even when I was wondering why the hell I was still reading a book about a man flat on his back in a hospital bed. I kept trying to drag MT into it so he could share my bemusement (he wouldn't be dragged).

At the end I'm left with two lingering questions:

Where the hell does the title of this book come into play?

Why, if this book uses factual evidence, do so many academic sources still claim Richard III killed the princes?

I enjoyed this, but I think someone with a stronger interest in the history of the British monarchy would eat this up and appreciate far more than I did. And I'll definitely be checking out Tey's more traditional mysteries. ( )

2021 book #61. 1951. With literally nothing to do while in hospital while recovering from a broken leg, Inspector Grant of Scotland Yard looks into the mystery of Richard III and his murdered nephews. More a history lesson than a novel, but interesting. ( )
  capewood | Oct 3, 2021 |
I bought all the Josephine Tey mystery novels published by the Folio Society, and the others did not disappoint, but this one felt like a big waste of money to me. It's a mystery novel with no mystery, that takes place entirely in a hospital room, as the Scotland Yard detective Grant kills time during his recuperation by ranting about how historians have done Richard III wrong. That's it. That's the entire plot. ( )

I appreciate Tey's fresh approach at mystery novels. She rejects romance pretty firmly, comes at the stories from different angles including ignoring her detective almost completely in one book and in this example, invaliding him. I thought I had read this book in my middle school tumble into British novels. But nope, what I was remembering was Ngaio Marsh's Death of a Fool. Ha!
This was thin but I romped through it quickly and am ready to watch BCumberbatch's Richard III series now! ( )

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. ( )

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.
