“Weir’s book is, no doubt, not the last on the subject, but it might be the best.”—The Boston Globe

“[Alison] Weir takes us on this delicious mystery with a fearsome vengeance. The result is a fascinating and completely credible account.”—Milwaukee Journal

“Did Richard III do in his nephews or didn’t he? How much of the evil-uncle legend was later Tudor propaganda and how much was true? . . . This is exciting reading.”—The Denver Post
“Good mysteries never die, they just improve with age. . . . Weir has assembled an impressive case for the prosecution in The Princes in the Tower.”—Orlando Sentinel

Author Essay

Alison Weir goes to contemporary sources to unravel the fate of the sons of Edward lV, the princes in the Tower of London. These sources include the account of Dominic Mancini, an Italian monk who was in England from 1482-July 1483 as part of a French delegation and the Croyland Chronicles. Other writers, including novelists Josephine Tey and Sharon Kay Penmann, have examined the disappearance of Edward V and his younger brother. I won’t tell you Weir’s conclusions, but I will say that she is very persuasive in her reasoning. I highly recommend PRINCES IN THE TOWER to any fans of British Royal history.
