The murder of the Princes in the Tower is the most famous cold case in English or British history. Traditionally considered victims of a ruthless uncle, there are other suspects too often and too easily discounted. There may be no definitive answer, but by delving into the context of their disappearance and the characters of the suspects Matthew Lewis will examine the motives and opportunities afresh as well as ask a crucial but often overlooked question: what if there was no murder? What if Edward V and his brother Richard, Duke of York survived their uncle's reign and even that of their brother-in-law Henry VII? There are glimpses of their possible survival and compelling evidence to give weight to those glimpses which is considered alongside the possibility of their deaths to provide a rounded and complete assessment of the most fascinating mystery in history. AUTHOR: Matthew Lewis is the author of The Wars of the Roses (Amberley Publishing, 2015) and Richard, Duke of York: King by Right (Amberley Publishing, 2016). He writes a history blog and runs two podcasts on history.
