FROM THE PUBLISHER-If Alan Grant of Scotland Yard hadn't fallen, ignominiously, through a trap door while chasing Benny Skoll, he would not now be in hospital enduring endles8 boredom. If he hadn't been fascinated by faces, his actress friend, Marta Hallard, wouldn't have brought him a packet of portraits to analyze and speculate on. One of those intriguing faces belonged to England's Richard III. Had he, Alan wondered as he gazed at Richard's sensitive, intelligent face, had he been one of the world's most villainous murderers—a man who could kill his beloved brother's children to make his crown secure? Or had Richard been the victim of one of history's most vicious plots? Had he been turned into a monster by usurpers who stole England's throne?
