Review: Currently King Richard III of England is portrayed by history and Shakespeare as an evil, murderous hunchback who killed his own young nephews to keep hold of the throne. Yet, Ms. Tey’s book creates a gripping, if, fictional (but rooted in historical information) case for Henry VI as the murderer and slanderer of Richard for the rest of time. For history is, after all, written by the victors.
