Publisher's Write-Up

'These are the files of the toughest team ever to tackle time-crime... we are the TIME DETECTIVES!'

In each of these zany, fast-paced adventure stories, a young team of investigators uncover the truth behind a real-life historical mystery.

What really happened to the princes in the tower - the two youngest sons of Edward IV? They disappeared into the Tower of London and were never seen again... but there are clues to their fate still to be uncovered.

The Time Detectives set out to piece all the evidence together, but they are unprepared for a plot that almost costs them their lives.

This book is about a team of children called The Time Detectives. They investigate historical events of a more gruesome nature in a very accessible way. In other words history that is fun :)

This story, the third in the series, tells the tale of the two youngest sons of Edward IV who were taken to the Tower of London and never seen again.

It was a very funny book to read and I really enjoyed it. Even though I'm not that interested in History it was more of a horror story with the bonus of being helpful for school.

I would like to find books 1, 2 and 4. They are the Witch of Nightmare Avenue, The Pirates of the Dark Park and King Arthur's Bones. Hopefully I will find them and do some reviews in the near future.

One other thing, if you are of a weak disposition or a vegetarian, you best not read this book as it didn't hold back on the nastier side of history.
