The Daughter of Time

Um, yeah.  Josephine Tey is simply awesome.  I’m re-reading the Daughter of Time, which is essentially Inspector Grant laying in a hospital bed reading history books.  Zzzzzz, you might say?  No, WAIT, this book is incredible!  Sure, he’s in a hospital bed, but his mind is racing through the past, exploring the mystery of what really happened to the Princes in the Tower and was Richard III a villain… or one of the most maligned characters in English history?  She’s not telling so far, but the tone definitely leans towards the latter (b/c if people are as they seem what’s the mystery?)  I love trying to figure out not where she’s going, but why she’s going there.

 

Are there any books that sounded boring on their face and ended up blowing your mind???
