This story really stuck with me! I loved the thought process Inspector Grant uses to reach his conclusion about the famous mystery - what happened to the princes in the tower? Did Richard III really have them killed in cold blood?

I read this book in high school. It was recommended to me by my mother who loves mysteries. I'm usually pretty indifferent to them, but this was a neat blend of historical fiction and a who-dun-it. Years later I went to London and walked around the Tower and went to the Portrait Gallery and saw the painting which inspired Inspector Grant. It was one of the coolest moments for me!

I highly recommend this book to mystery lovers as well as people who enjoy history.
