4.0 out of 5 stars Unambiguous and well thought out, 13 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cold Case Reopened: The Princes in the Tower (Kindle Edition)
In this relatively short book, Garber uses his many years experience as a police detective to present an unbiased and clear cut evaluation of the age old mystery - the Princes in the Tower.

Speculation as to the Princes' fate has forever existed, and with the discovery of their Uncle's body under the car park in Leicester, the conspiracy theories are bound to be rekindled once more. Garber has accurately presented the facts, assessed them in the logical way we would expect of any criminal investigation, and drawn conclusions from what we know. Hard as it is not to get caught up in endless webs of speculation for which there are no solid supporting facts, Garber succeeds in avoiding the bulk of this, and having no pre-existing sympathies with any side of the argument, he achieves a true methodical analysis.

If you'd like to know more about the now infamous Princes in the Tower story, then this is an excellent place to start. It is refreshingly unbiased and nonfictional; whilst Garber does draw his own final conclusion as to where the guilt may lie, the reader feels armed with enough information to form a base of their own opinions, and reading this book will allow you to follow some of the other stories by doing further research on the numerous influential and colourful characters involved.

We can only hope that one day permission will be granted for the collection of valuable evidence, although this certainly seems unlikely to occur in our own lifetimes. Without it, this book is about the best hope we have of understanding the evidence that is available, as incomplete as it may be.

Garber states both at the beginning and the end of this book that it will probably be a one-off publication. Garber if you're reading this, please reconsider - there are so many other unsolved mysteries that would benefit from your structured and unbiased approach!

The only reason I gave this 4 stars not 5 is because any future publications would benefit from better proof reading, the amount of errors do the book an injustice.
