But what has befallen the two Princes in the Tower? And how secure is this new King Richard upon his throne, as powerful forces conspire against him?
Francis is now closer than ever to the centre of power, as the king's Lord Chamberlain, and still treading a dangerous path between loyalty and intrigue. But the time of peace may be short - across the Channel the pretender to the throne Henry Tudor bides his time, waiting for the moment to strike, and bloody insurrection is only a whisper away. Conspiracy, rebellion, disaster, and the final reckoning at Bosworth await.
Readers will find the true genesis of the Tudor regime exposed to the light of day, and the nature of their understanding of "truth" in the historical account challenged in this exciting and thought-provoking fictionalised version of the brief reign of Richard of Gloucester - the most reviled of English kings.
