Publisher's Summary

'Truth is the Daughter of Time' is an old proverb. And The Daughter of Time is Josephine Tey's search for the truth about the murder of the Princes in the Tower. Was the hunchback, Richard III, the monster that Shakespeare and the history books have made him out to be? With real brilliance she conducts her search in the form of a crime novel, and her investigator is none other than her famous detective, Inspector Alan Grant, who starts to examine the centuries-old scandal.

Best Detective Novel ever

In 1990, the Crime Writers Association declared this the best detective novel ever. This may be true, it is one of my favorite ever, and Derek Jacobi's performance is amazing.

The book that inspired the Richard III Society

I loved this very special detective novel. Having been brought up on the Tudors perspective of Richard III, Josephine Tey made me question my long held convictions. She weaves a very convincing case for the innocence of Richard III's involvement in the disappearance of the 'Princes in the Tower' as well as other long held beliefs. Even though the jury is still out for me, I am much better informed and from now on will keep an open mind. The unfolding of the story is very clever and the narrator did an excellent job.
