not as good as some of her other books

I wasn't as impressed with this story line as with some of her other books.

history, romance, and murder

This is a wonderful, fun read. They're times when you feel like you are playing the game clue and which adds to the fun. History of the two princes who Richard III may have murdered is interwoven extremely well throughout. There is also a romance between the hero and heroine. The hero is in his fifties and the heroine is a sexy, strong, intelligent, middle age woman. Yeah!

Great Ricardian Romp!

As a dedicated Yorkist and a member of the Richard III Society, I am constantly reading any work I can find about the Duke of Gloucester. This book is a murder mystery that takes place at a weekend gathering of Ricardians in England. Accidents begin to happen that echo Shakespeare's telling of Richard's alleged murders. Each of the Ricardians in the novel plays a role from the Yorkist period ... one accident has the fellow playing George, Duke of Clarence, bound and stuffed into a barrel (to echo the alleged drowning of the unfortunate Duke in a butt of malmsey). The reading is light and entertaining, and replete with well researched historical information. It's on my Listmania "Ricardian Reader's Library" as a result.

A wonderful and interesting book.

There is no more entertaining way to learn about history or archaeology than reading an Elizabeth Peters mystery. This is one of her finest.

Read this Book!

This is Elizabeth Peters' best book! She skillfully explains and introduces what is generally a very confusing period of history. She is educated and always tells a wonderfull story!
