Publisher's Summary

For centuries one great historical mystery has been capturing the imagination of the world - the fate of the Princes in the Tower.

Shakespeare casts Richard III as the ultimate villain, murdering his nephews in order to usurp the throne. This has always been the traditional view. In recent years alternative theories have been suggested that let Richard off the hook and lay the blame elsewhere. However, with the recent discovery of Richard’s body in Leicester a whole new wave of interest has been stirred in all things related to Richard III. Was he really the child killer portrayed by Thomas More and William Shakespeare?

In this short audiobook, a retired detective reopens this cold case and attempts to piece together the evidence and answer the great mystery about what really happened to the young Princes.

Were they really murdered? If so, what happened to the bodies and who did the evil deed? Or were they left unharmed and left to live out their days in peace? Was a challenging offered up in place of Richard, Duke of York by Elizabeth Woodville and was that why Henry VII was so concerned by Perkin Warbeck?

As the author delves deeper into the evidence he finds intriguing facts including doubts about dental evidence used to determine the ages of the skeletons found in the Tower of London, the fact that skeletons were abandoned for years in the Tower after discovery and details of two mysterious coffins buried at Winsor.

In addition, he highlights the key suspect that no historian seems to even contemplate could be responsible for the Princes disappearance.

Finally he gathers the suspects in one room to revel what he believes really happened. The question is, do you agree?

    "Definitely Different"

    The narration made it difficult for me. Too many sentence breaks and pauses. However, (the writer uses that word about every other sentence) the premise was very interesting to me. He approached the subject like a cold case detective, using motive, timeline, opportunity etc as any other investigator would.
    If only the Queen would allow DNA testing on those bones....

    "A Different Perspective & Possible Answers......"

    Written by a retired detective, this book gives an eye opening approach to this unsolved mystery. Direct & straightforward insights of which a historian doesn't offer.

    I enjoyed how he 'talks' to the reader and his Hercule Poirot style ending. Presenting those who may have been involved -- many surprises. Admittedly I find it hard to disagree with his wise outcome.

    Though Mark Garber states he will probably not write another book, hopefully he'll reconsider. There are many other historical mysteries could benefit from his insight.

    "Enjoyed the scientific approach."

    Just the facts!


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The narrator had a good voice and was easy to listen too.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a unique approach to solving the age old mystery of who killed the Princesses in the Tower. I enjoyed that the author conducted a police investigation to come to his conclusions. Very interesting information and good research.

    Story
    "Too many hypotheses discussed and discarded."
    Would you ever listen to anything by Mark Garber again?

    No. However, he himself says this is the only book he will ever write.


    Any additional comments?

    I got totally lost after a while. I am quite willing to believe that the author is going about this in the same way he would with any murder case. The result, however, is that he takes each character, says why they are suspects, then says why they are not suspects. He does this over and over again, and I just got lost. I just wasn't ready for the mental agility required to follow this audiobook.
