While Inspector Grant of Scotland Yard looks for a way to make his convalescence in a hospital bed less tedious, his eye falls on a portrait of Richard III. Grant's schoolboy memory of the king who murdered his two nephews suddenly sparks another line of reasoning for the misdeed, and the reader is treated to a new answer to the killings in the Tower. All of the action delights Derek Jacobi, who reads as if he is sitting solo on a stage, speaking to an audience that has come to hear him solve this mystery. He talks to this audience. He talks to the other characters in the book. It is a complete performance. The publisher has enclosed a card with a listing of several generations of Richards and Henrys and Edwards, which will be helpful to listeners who are not driving as they listen.
