This book is more about the author than about history. She is only a screenwriter and a secretary and has no schooling yet she ran the dig to find the grave of Richard III. She used a backhoe to dig for the grave (the leg bone was smashed) and a mattock to find the skull (the mattock was driven straight into the skull and the skull was cracked) So much damage! She only liked evidence that fit what she wanted and walked away from anything else. The last battle at Bosworth was very interesting, also Richard's life as she saw it. Will have to read more about the King to form a better idea about Richard. Did he or didn't he kill the two children in the tower?
