The fifth book in the Inspector Alan Grant series. The Daughter of Time remains Josephine Tey's most enduringly popular mystery. Can a bed-ridden 20th-century detective solve a 500-year-old crime? The murder of the young princes in the Tower of London in 1483 is the most notorious crime in English royal history. The prime suspect has long been Richard III, portrayed as a monster by everyone from early propagandists writing immediately after Richard's death to Shakespeare himself. In this, the book repeatedly voted one of the best mystery novels of all time, queen of Golden Age crime Josephine Tey tackles the question of Richard's guilt via her own celebrated detective.… (mais)

    The Sunne in Splendour de Sharon Kay Penman (LisaMaria_C)
    LisaMaria_C: For me The Daughter of Time and The Sunne in Splendour go hand in hand. The first is the classic mystery "solving" the mystery of the Two Princes in the Tower and the second a sympathetic biographical novel of Richard III which is well-researched and moving.… (mais)

    The Murders of Richard III de Elizabeth Peters (Cynara)
    Cynara: Both books are, broadly speaking, mysteries debunking the popular misconceptions around Richard III; Tey's book is entirely concerned with the subject, and Peters' does so as a sort of subplot, in addition to a more traditional mystery. I'd suggest reading Tey first, as her mystery has less to offer once you've read Peters.… (mais)
  3. 61
    The Wench is Dead de Colin Dexter (Cynara)
    Cynara: Two hospitalised detectives work through historical mysteries, investigating from their cots. Tey's is the more famous work, and will give you a good education on the ins and outs of the rehabilitation of Richard III, but to my mind, Dexter's book is better.

    Richard the Third de Paul Murray Kendall (myshelves)

    Richard III de William Shakespeare (bookwoman247)
    bookwoman247: This is a mystery involving Richard III and the two princes in the tower, and seems to have garnered a bit of respect. It's a great read on its own, and would make a great companion read to Shakespeare's Richard III.

    We Speak No Treason de Rosemary Hawley Jarman (Imprinted, KayCliff)

    Royal Blood: King Richard III and the Mystery of the Princes de Bertram Fields (inge87)
  8. 10
    The Black Tower de Louis Bayard (bjappleg8)
    bjappleg8: Both novels use detectives to explore historical mysteries surrounding princes banished to towers and whose fates can never be known for certain.

    Yorkists: The History of a Dynasty de Anne Crawford (KayCliff)

    The Madman of Bergerac de Georges Simenon (shaunie)
    shaunie: The detective solves the crime whilst bedridden in both. Both also somewhat overrated?
  11. 00
    Chatterton de Peter Ackroyd (kmcmahon)
    kmcmahon: Though very different types of book, both feature modern day characters trying to solve famous mysterious deaths from centuries before.

Enjoyable historical fiction analyzing facts to analyze probability of Richard III's involvement in the death of his nephews. ( )

I am going to read the heck out of the Richard III Wikipedia page now. ( )

Interesting, but not the thrilling mystery I was expecting. My main take away is that history is truly written by the victors, and without corroboration or first hand accounts, everything should be taken with a grain of salt. Richard the third certainly got a bad rap.

“Perhaps a series of small satisfaction scattered like sequins over the texture of everyday life was of greater worth than the academic satisfaction of owning a collection of fine objects at the back of a drawer.” ( )

The mystery took second place in terms of enjoyment in comparison to reading the main character and his companions parse it out. The novel is full of just the right type of humor and wit which helped propel a rather slim novel to a single sitting read.
"Not at all a bad epitaph." ( )
  HCSimmons | Mar 11, 2023 |
On my second re-read of this book, I enjoyed it at least as much as the first time through. It does tickle my funny bone, though, that the entire action of the novel can be summed up as a guy in a hospital bed sending somebody out for library books. There's literally no other action. Other than that it's just brain work. :D
Since it's Josephine Tey, though, you can be assured it's top-notch writing, and (assuming you have a modicum of interest in history) you genuinely get excited as new pieces of this 400-year-old puzzle come to light. It's especially interesting since the remains of Richard III were found in 2012 and the debate about whether he was a good or bad guy continues unabated...

Original review follows:
-------------------------------------
Policeman recuperating from an injury is desperate to find some mentally stimulating way to while away the days. In the past he's been intrigued by faces, and seems to have a pretty good instinct for what people's expressions reveal about their character. A friend brings him a bunch of prints from the National Portrait Gallery, including Richard III. Without knowing who it is, he theorizes on the personality behind the face and is extremely surprised to learn that it is actually one of history's most hated kings, accused of the murder of "the princes in the tower." With the help of some loaned history books, and a friend to do the more physical aspects of research, he sets out to find the truth behind this 400-year-old story.
Very interesting mystery, especially for someone who likes history. Rather mentally stimulating. I believe this book has been listed as one of the greats of its genre. ( )

You don't like to think of a man you've known and admired flung stripped and dangling across a pony like a dead animal.
A frisson of horror may go down one's spine at wholesale destruction but one's heart stays unmoved. A thousand people drowned in floods in China are news: a solitary child drowned in a pond is tragedy.
It was, moreover, the almost-respectable form of historical fiction which is merely history-with-conversation, so to speak. An imaginative biography rather than an imagined story.
