A Dangerous Inheritance tells the dramatic story of two heroines, separated by time, but intriguingly linked by history’s most famous murder mystery.

Lady Katherine Grey has already suffered more than her fair share of tragedy. Eight years ago, her older sister, Lady lane Grey, was beheaded for unlawfully accepting a crown that was not hers. Now, in risking all for love, Katherine incurs the wrath of her formidable cousin, Queen Elizabeth I, who sees her as a rival for her insecure throne.

Interlaced with Katherine’s story is that of her distant kinswoman, Kate Plantagenet, the bastard daughter of Richard III. Kate loves her father, but all is not well at court, and before long she hears terrible rumours that threaten all she holds dear. Like Katherine Grey, she falls in love with a man who is forbidden to her. Then she embarks on what will prove to be a dangerous quest, covertly seeking the truth about the fate of her cousins, the Princes in the Tower.

But time is not on Kate’s side — or on Katherine’s either ...

Alison Weir’s new novel skilfully mixes fact and fiction, telling a page-turning story within a framework of historical authenticity.


Alison Weir is one of the bestselling historians in the United Kingdom, and has sold over 2.3 million books worldwide. She has written sixteen history books, including 1 he Six Wives of Henry VIII, Elizabeth the Queen, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Katherine Swynford and The Lady in the Tower: The Tall of Anne Boleyn, and, most recently, Mary Boleyn: ‘The Great and Infamous Whore’. Alison has also published three historical novels: Innocent Traitor, The Lady Elizabeth and The Captive Queen.

The year is 1562. Lady Catherine Grey, cousin of Elizabeth I, has just been arrested along with her husband Edward. Their crime is to have secretly married and produced a child who might threaten the Queen's title. Alone in her chamber at the Tower of London, Catherine hears ghostly voices, echoes, she thinks, of a crime committed in the same room where she is imprisoned. The story flashes back to 1483 and another Catherine - Kate Plantaganet, bastard daughter of Richard III. She has heard terrible rumours of the death of the young deposed Edward V and his brother (the Princes in the Tower) but loyalty to her father prevents her believing them. After his death at Bosworth, she is viewed with suspicion by Henry VII's court, even more so when she becomes pregnant. Catherine, too, is pregnant, a friendly warder having sneaked Edward into her room. She finds documents relating to Kate's life and gets swept up both in Kate's story and the mystery of the Princes, which she realises Kate never solved. Kate dies in childbirth and it is left to Catherine to discover the truth about the Princes.
