Review of The Killer of the Princes in the Tower
Well, M. J. Trow tackles that question in this book, and I have to say, the suspect was NOT someone I was expecting to be named! I was completely blown away, but her analysis and theory makes complete sense.
I don’t want to spoil it, and give the name of the suspect away (you have to read the book for yourself), but OH MY GOODNESS! How in the world was this person not thought of before? How did they escape scrutiny for so long? Okay, you have to read this one for yourself – I cannot give the suspect away! *Jumping up and down, holding my tongue*
Throughout this book, the writer takes us through the ups and downs of the Plantagenet and Tudor dynasties, the theories, main players, and usual suspects that come up when the disappearance of the two princes is discussed.
Now, I have long been a Richard III fan, and I could never come to terms with the thought that he could have been responsible. So, you can imagine my relief when he was not named. But, there were only a handful of people that COULD have been responsible, and had the access to the princes that the crime would have required.
I think that this new suspect opens a possibility, a new line of questioning. However, given that centuries have passed since the crime was committed, we are never fully going to know who was responsible. The tragic ending of the princes in the tower is going to remain a mystery until the end of times.
This book was truly enjoyable, and it gave me a lot of information. GREAT INFORMATION. There are some newer crimes which were woven in to explain the suspect likelihood. However it also is going through the materials that we know with a fine tooth comb. For those who enjoy this period in history, or love a good who dun it – then this book is for you! Find out who the killer of the princes in the tower just might be!
Thank you to Pen and Sword books for a copy to provide my unbiased and honest opinion.
