I didn't find the time travel element was explained very well, and parts of the book were rather confusing, contradictory even.
I am not convinced that the team WOULD have survived in the 15th century, as they didn't appear to alter their behaviour much - even though the importance of doing so was stressed during training !. Similarly - and I am only going by recall, so may be mis- remembering, and am therefore open to contradiction - I think they said they couldn't change history, then during conversation between a couple of the people said they were about TO change history. Then a bit later it was again said that they had to let events happen as they did originally, but then said they could NOT let that happen, it was wrong. VERY confusing !.
There were a few grammatical errors / oversights / missed words and wrong words used which, I think, diminish the quality of the book, and cause some annoyance, and shaking of the head at the inefficient proof reading, or lack of it, these days - examples being " bare " used for BEAR; " to " instead of TOO, and ... " he made a vowel " instead of ... " made a VOW " - which is disgraceful !.
Finally - the title is rather misleading, as there is no mention of " the tower grave " at all, that I can recall. It MAY refer to the so called burial to the foot of the stair, but it doesn't say that, and the removal of the boys FROM the Tower doesn't lead the reader to think that.
it just used current interest in that topic to produce a superficial novel on time travel and detective work with a bit of history thrown in. It adds nothing to the PiT issue. I cant work out if some of the historical inaccuracies are due to poor proof reading or the author's lack of knowledge. Despite the period in which the team were to do their work being clearly defined as June 1483 the novel repeatedly give the dates as 1453 which was before the father of the two princes (Edward IV) ever came to the throne.
In addition to this there were some real howlers in the narrative - at one point 'John' makes a 'vowel' to sort something out! Unbelievable! Finally to reduce the Wars of the Roses (The Cousins War) to a piece of 'doggerel' (the poem) indicates to me that the author is not capable of taking any of this seriously. If I had not been desperate to find new books on the Richard III/Princes in the Tower issue I doubt I would have bothered to read it to the end but I couldn't believe it could get any worse. I wish some quality control could be exerted over such books before they are printed.
