With the recent news of the bones of Richard III being found it reminds me of a quite unique book. The Daughter of Time by Josephine Tey. It is unique in a couple of ways. For one it is a detective story that takes place totally within the confines of a hospital room. For another it is a historical detective novel where the detective looks into the history of Richard III and whether he was actually responsible for the death of his Nephews. The case made in this regard transcends a fictional detective novel into actual history. It seems like such an odd basis for a story, yet I was totally involved in the novel from start to finish.
