Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

When Scotland Yard Inspector Alan Grant is confined to a hospital bed, a friend brings him an assortment of pictures of famous historical figures. Grant is engrossed with the portrait of King Richard III and wonders how such an apparently sensitive soul could have murdered his own nephews to secure the British crown for himself. With the help of the British Museum and an American scholar who agrees to be Grant's research assistant, Inspector Grant reconsiders 500-year-old evidence pertaining to one of the most intriguing murder 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 and will captivate listeners.

A key piece of evidence for Inspector Grant's analysis, the portrait of Richard III — which actually resides at the National Portrait Gallery in London — is featured on the CD cover for listeners' reference. Read by Derek Jacobi.
