Overview

The Murders of Richard III (Jacqueline Kirby Series #2) by Elizabeth Peters

American librarian Jacqueline Kirby is invited to an English country mansion for a weekend of role-playing and scholarship centered on King Richard III. Jacqueline is amused at the group's eccentricities—until history begins to repeat itself. A dangerous practical joker begins recreating famous fifteenth-century murder methods—beheading, poisoning, smothering, and even drowning in a butt of malmsey. As the jokes become more and more macabre, one at last proves fatal.

Read this one just after reading "Daughter of Time" on the same subject. A who didn't dunnit. Enjoyed it thoroughly.

Peters blends mystery and history in a fun and readable manner. Her female characters are strong and yet still value femininity. This book like her other books has a lot of humor and wit. Most of her books I started getting at the library and found myself buying later since they can be enjoyed on multiple readings, this one included.

Elizabeth Peter's works are always full of interesting characters, good history and fun mystery. The same is true of this Jacqueline Kirby mystery. Although the story line is a bit more convoluted than some of Ms. Peters' other works, it is still a good way to spend an afternoon. You'll have a grand time reading about the eccentric behavior of history enthusiasts who dress in period costumes while learning about real historical controversies.
