    This is the subject of Josephine Tey's The Daughter of Time. In this wonderful novel, her injured and bedridden British police detective reads a history of Richard III that he finds on a lending library cart. He decides to bring his investigatory skills to solving the mystery of the Princes in the Tower from his hospital bed. It is a fabulous book that thoroughly debunks Shakespeare's version of Richard III's story.
