How did the once able and well-respected administrator from York degenerate into the despicable monster portrayed by More and Shakespeare?
The reader is left with the interesting conundrum of whether we can believe anything we read about the past unless it is written by a real live witness and backed by evidence.

Please don't be put off by the fact that this is about such a confusing time in English history, or what you know from your schooldays about Richard III, or even by the fact that all the action takes place in Grant's hospital bedroom.
