Publisher's Summary

Kidnap, murder, slander, and a legend unearthed...

1483: King Edward IV dies, leaving two innocent young princes in line to the throne. But when scandal and conspiracy explodes around their claim, Richard of Gloucester is proclaimed king.

Shortly after, the princes vanish, and storm clouds begin to gather around the newly crowned King Richard III. Fighter, philanderer, and royal spy Henry Morane is tasked with investigating the princes' disappearance, the attempted kidnap of the exiled Lancastrian leader Henry Tudor and the hunting out of traitors amid Richard's supporters. And at the bloody battle of Bosworth Field, King Richard and Henry Morane will face a fatal trial that will dictate the path of history.

With the mystery of C. J. Sansom and the epic adventure of Conn Iggulden and Bernard Cornwell, Robert Farrington's thrilling novel brings to life King Richard III as we now know him.

    Story
    "Not what's on the cover."

    This is a strange story, not particularly about Richard III at all, although very briefly mentioned. Even the amazing tones of Sean Barrett could not bring this book to life for me and I lost track in several places and just hoped I might be able to re-pick up the story being told. Essentially a spy, thriller told by Henry Morane, the story jumps from one thing to another and has no track, which was very disappointing and merely played as background noise. The whole story did not grab my attention enough to be able to establish a proper tale behind the history and I think it should probably have been given a different title. The literature however, is not at fault and is well written, just lacking a story of substance and I could not therefore recommend this book. Positively dull. What a shame
