Product Description


The book cries out to be made into a TV serial, every bit as compelling as ELIZABETH R or the version of Robert Graves's CLAUDIUS books (The Scotsman)

A hugely enjoyable read (Glasgow Herald)

Tannahill's Richard is complicated, ruthless, sometimes troubled, but no plaster saint (The Scotsman)

Enthralling...a highly satisfying story (Pocklington Post)

Praise for Reay Tannahill:

'A rattling good yarn' The Times

'A sweeping grandeur touched novel with superb characterisations' Publishers Weekly

'There's romance, humour and, above all, a display of brilliant storytelling' Woman


Book Description

A brilliant novel about England's most enigmatic king, Richard III.

About the Author

Born and brought up in Scotland, Reay Tannahill would have liked to have gone either to art or drama school but fell victim to the traditional Scottish passion for formal education and found herself instead at the University of Glasgow, from where she emerged with an MA in history and a postgraduate certificate in social sciences.

After a varied career - as a probation officer, advertising copy-writer, newspaper reporter, historical researcher and graphic designer - she was asked by the folio society to write a short illustrated study of Regency England. This allowed her to combine her interests in art and history and was followed by PARIS IN THE REVOLUTION, THE FINE ART OF FOOD, FOOD IN HISTORY and SEX IN HISTORY. Having spent twelve years researching and writing these last two books `translated into eleven languages`, Reay Tannahill felt that a change was called for and embarked on her first historical novel, A DARK AND DISTANT SHORE, which was an instant bestseller. Her following historical novels were all critically acclaimed and included PASSING GLORY, winner of the Romantic Novel of the Year Award.
