The Daughter of Time
Confined to a hospital bed, Scotland Yard's Inspector Alan Grant is bored. To divert his attention from his pain, a friend brings him pictures of faces. He becomes engrossed with the portrait of Richard III. How is it possible that such a sensitive-appearing soul could have been portrayed as the odious villain, the Wicked Uncle of history, responsible for the murder of his young nephews, heirs to the British throne, in order to secure the line of succession for himself? Grant reconsiders 500-year-old evidence pertaining to one of the most intriguing mysteries of all time: Who really killed the two princes in the Tower of London? Tey's answer to this question has provoked controversy among historians.

Tey is touted to be the best of 1950's mystery writers, but not for me. I have to have large print or audio & this audio is Derek Jacobi, a truely great voice. His take on this was too fast, hard to understand & I didn't finish.
