Two women separated by time are linked by the most famous murder mystery in history, the Princes in the Tower.
Lady Katherine Grey has already suffered more than her fair share of tragedy. Newly pregnant, she has incurred the wrath of her formidable cousin, Queen Elizabeth I, who sees her as a rival to her insecure throne.
Alone in her chamber in the Tower, she finds old papers belonging to a kinswoman of hers, Kate Plantagenet, who forty years previously had embarked on a dangerous quest to find what really happened to her cousins, the two young Princes who had last been seen as captives in the Tower.
But time is not on Kate's side - nor on Katherine's either ...
A Dangerous Inheritance
This is the first of Alison Weir's books that I have read and it is a cracker! It kept me enthralled all the way to the end and has really wet my appetite for more historical fact/fiction. The two periods are beautifully interwoven throughout the book and I now know more about the kings and queens of England than I ever learnt at school !!! I've already downloaded my next Alison Weir!!!
