This book might as well have been called "Why Alison Weir is Wrong". Seriously, he spends as much time attacking others who have also written about this subject as he does on his own theories - without providing footnotes of any kind! Weir might be biased, but she is honest about what her hypothesis is and uses the evidence (WITH footnotes) to make her case.

Besides this, Fields reaches the same conclusion everyone else has - we simply will never know for sure if Richard murdered his nephews or not. There is no new information, nothing revolutionary, aside from giving a more balanced portrait of Richard. Quick read but still, may not want to waste your time. Unless you really hate Alison Weir and want to enjoy seeing her work and research called into question every other page.

Did not know Richard lll till Kevin Spacey played the lead in a Brooklyn Theater, he dressed up Richard to the extreme of being totally mad which only he could do. Royal Blood is the total royal family history, these guys will do anything to remain royal. All the marriages and beheadings and cells in the Tower, I kept note on sticky notes on the refridgerator. Through it all, it's great reading laughter if your notes are in order. lol
