Did Richard III really order the murder of his nephews, the Princes in the Tower, or is that just an example of “tonypandy”? Josephine Tey’s fictional detective takes the case in The Daughter of Time and turns history into a fascinating whodunit. Read it for enjoyment, for learning, and for the definition of “tonypandy.”
