This book was so inconsistent and unbelievable. It jumps from scene to scene - the characters are never developed fully and the storyline is really rubbish. Do you really think the heir to the British throne would be allowed to run around London with a gun trying to aid his cousin in finding out who murdered their family members?? The Kings son was referred to as the surgeon, the prince, the kings son - there was so many characters it was hard to keep track of who was who - never mind calling them all different variations of their name/title

I love a historically based story but this was not one I enjoyed - I really struggled to get to the end then wondered why I had bothered!

Loved this book, but you would struggle if you don't know your Plantagenet history well. Fortunately I do! This is one I will retread. Bit longwinded in parts, and style varied, but highly entertaining.

This is a very interesting, what-if, conspiracy style thriller.

What if the princes in the tower, didn't die by whoevers hand, but escaped, lived and had descendants. How and where would they have lived and what would be their position in society today.

There are two seemingly unrelated strands in the story, but becomes clear where it's going.

I enjoyed the plotting of the story, the build up of tension and the eerie descriptions of places. Although I thought some of the scenes went on a bit to long, but that's a very minor point.

I would recommend this book, in light of the recent interest of Richard III.

Clever idea and not the usual murder mystery. This sets out an alternative view of history and combines fact and fiction very cleverly. Well worth reading and real page turner.

John Paul Davis once again proves he's a master of the historical thriller genre. When I read THE TEMPLAR AGENDA, I was impressed with Davis' ability to weave fact and fiction together to form a story so seamless you wonder where one begins and the other ends. He's done it again with THE PLANTAGENET VENDETTA, this time with the murky history surrounding Richard III, the princes in the tower, and what might have been.

If you're a lover of English history, a fast-paced plot, and conspiracy theories surrounding the royal family, this is the book for you.

The concept was quite good, but the execution execrable. I'm seldom tempted to give up on a book but, having a keen interest in the Plantagenets generally, and Richard III in particular, I wanted to know the ending, and so laboured my way through dreary conversations, highly unlikely scenarios (especially those featuring the so-called Royal Family), and frequent misuse of the English language. I found myself mentally rewriting virtually every sentence as I read - not a great recommendation!

Interesting tale that keeps you gripped until the last page. History with intrigue and adventure could this really be fact??
