Mystery Book Club, The Daughter of Time - Online

Do you like to read and talk about mysteries? Then join us for monthly book discussions, fresh perspectives, new authors and a friendly atmosphere! We meet virtually via Zoom.
 
This month we will discuss Josephine Tey’s The Daughter of Time, considered by many reviewers to be one of the best mysteries of all times.  
Can a bed-ridden 20th-century detective solve a 500-year-old crime?  Scotland Yard inspector Alan Grant, recovering from a broken leg, becomes fascinated with a contemporary portrait of Richard III, believed to have brutally killed his brother's children - the Princes in the Tower - to make his crown secure. But is the hunchback with such a sensitive, noble face really one of the world's most heinous villains? Or was he the victim of one of the most insidious plots in history?
