The Bones of Richard III

A Daughter of TimeIf your first thought after hearing that Richard III’s bones were found beneath a parking lot in England, was “Josephine Tey,” you’re in good company. Her 1951 mystery, The Daughter of Time, which investigates whether the Shakespearean portrayal of Richard as an evil hunchback was accurate, is rising on Amazon’s sales rankings and is currently at #374 (from #20,117).

The book is also available in audio, narrated by Derek Jacobi, from AudioGo.

The bones reveal that Richard suffered from severe scoliosis.
