Scotland Yard inspector Alan Grant becomes fascinated by a portrait of Richard III while he is confined to bed with a broken leg. Unable to reconcile the kindly face he sees there with the horrible crimes attributed to the man, he decides to re-examine the murder of the Princes in the Tower. Convinced of Richard's innocence, Grant studies the historical evidence, using the keen insight and deductive skills of his detective background, leading him to a startling discovery. The Daughter of Time is a classic detective novel which changed our idea of what a detective novel could be. Since the discovery of Richard III's skeleton beneath a Leicester council carp park, interest in the real story of the controversial king has never been higher, and Josephine Tey's classic novel has never been more relevant.
Josephine Tey was a pseudonym used by Elizabeth MacKintosh (1896-1952), a Scottish author and playwright, best known for her mystery novels. Her works include The Daughter of Time, written about the Princes in the Tower mystery, The Franchise Affair on the famous kidnapping of Elizabeth Canning and A Shilling for Candles which was the basis of Hitchcock's film Young and Innocent.
