Synopsis:

Bloody Richard?

In a remote English manor house, modern admirers of the much-maligned King Richard III?one of Shakespeare's most extraordinary villains?are gathered for a grand weekend of dress-up and make-believe murder. But the fun ends when the make-believe turns more sinister . . . and deadly. Jacqueline Kirby, an American librarian on hand for the festivities, suddenly finds herself in the center of strange, dark doings . . . and racing to untangle a murderous puzzle before history repeats itself in exceptionally bloody ways.

Product Description: 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 groups 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.
