    Richard III is accused of murdering his nephews, the "Princes in the Tower", in order to usurp the throne of England, but this book tells a different story. Rather than looking at all the killings Richard III did not commit, this account focuses on the one judicial murder for which we know that he was responsible. On June 13, 1483, William, Lord Hastings, was hustled from a meeting of the Royal Council and summarily executed on Tower Green within the confines of the Tower of London.

    Studies show that people are poor at recognizing unfamiliar faces (ones we encounter for the first time, or have seen only briefly). This is true not only when we have to memorize the faces of new people, but also when the task is to compare images presented at the same time (such as matching a passport photo with a driver’s license photo). People also struggle to sort photographs by identity.
