• Ambition’s Debt – An Historical Murder Story

  • The man who would be king has secretly entered the castle where live the young King Edward and his brother, Richard, Duke of York. He has come to see his young kinsman, Prince Richard, whose friendship he is cultivating. It is not his first visit.

    Back in London, a coronation is being planned and the new young king is brought, against  the wishes of his mother, the formidable Elizabeth Woodville, to accustom himself to his new life, new courtiers, and new guardian, his uncle, Prince Richard, Duke of Gloucester, a man with ambitions of his own. Young Edward is homesick and lonely so what would be better than to bring to London to be his companion and playmate, his young brother, that mischief, Dicky, Duke of York? And where better to keep them safe but in that formidable and impressive fortress, the Tower of London? But there is a murderer on the loose, and he has the perfect cover, the ability to see his little kinsmen whenever he likes…

    This murder mystery is a new take on the murder of the Princes in the Tower, and the ending is not what most people believed at the time, or even today…
