I granted this 4 stars even though I had difficulty reading it It is not the author s fault that I lacked the background in order to appreciate his argumentsI picked this book up in the library because I was curious to learn about the controversy surrounding the death of Edward II and the Fieschi Letter following my reading of Ken Follett s World Without End and watching its TV adaptation My expectation was that it would be similar in style to his Time Travellers Guides that is accessible to a layperson I soon realised that it was scholarly in its approach and content and much suited to an academic readership than to someone like myself I could recognise its worth and did take on board the issues being discussed but was aware that I didn t have the background in Historiography reuired to be able to follow Mortimer s arguments for his innovative information method which seeks to apply a scientific model to the study of primary sources Frankly I knew I was out of my depth I spoke to one of the librarians at our local branch when I returned the book and she was going to pass it on to one of her colleagues who is a medieval scholar for his opinion My feeling is that while I was able to understand that Edward II s death and other issues addressed within are highly contested subjects that I wouldn t really re visit this book unless I decided to study medieval history as a discipline

When I bought this book I thought it was a general royal conspiracy topic but in reality it concerns Edward II mostly and Richard II both of whom were murdered under unexplained circumstances and both of whose murders were followed by survival conspiracies Because the events are already shrouded in mystery Mortimer s information based approach to history is appropriate considering we have to make many suppositions based on what little often contradictory evidence survived The whole first chapter explains his somewhat controversial approach to history and why he feels it s necessary If you accept his premises the rest follows naturally He certainly has a gift for breaking down an argument into logical steps My objections are when he takes his argument a little too far and converts his assumptions into proof In his conclusion of chapter 9 he says Certainly it would be foolish to rest an argument on the fact that there is insufficient evidence It seems that he is a historian that hates a vacuum and proceeds to fill itThis is a book that presupposes the reader already knows the history the author will not reinvent the wheel and summarize what happens before analyzing it There were a couple of times I got lost because I m not all that well versed with the personages surrounding Edward II In the Richard II history I would have liked to have known his analysis of the legend surrounding Richard s escape from Pontefract in fact that s why I bought the book But he didn t go there at all he merely went on to talk about the later conspiracies around the dead king Although he gives good credence to Edward II s survival it appears that he sees Richard II s survival as apocryphal Yes Richard s face was exposed in the funeral train but couldn t it as easily have been the decapitated look alike Maudeleyn s face This was suggested by other writers along the way Maudeleyn isn t mentioned at all which makes me wonder what other possibilities have been left out For a historical fiction writer Mortimer s approach is useful as straight history I took his conclusions with a proverbial grain of salt
