Abstract:

"Inspector Alan Grant of Scotland Yard, bedridden in a hospital while recuperating from a broken leg and exceedingly bored, becomes fascinated with a contemporary portrait of Richard III that bears no resemblance to the Wicked Uncle of history. Could such a sensitive, noble face actually belong to one of the world's most heinous villains--a venomous hunchback who may have killed his brother's children to secure his crown? Or could Richard have been the victim, turned into a monster by the usurpers of England's throne? Grant determines to find out once and for all, with the help of the British Museum and an American scholar, what kind of man Richard Plantagenet really was and who killed the little Princes in the Tower."--Back cover.
