The truth behind Richard the Lionheart and Bad King John - brilliantly readable, scrupulously researched and full of powerful story-telling
Frank McLynn is the author of many critically acclaimed books, including Napoleon, 1066, Villa and Zapata, Wagons West, Stanley and 1759, all published by Cape and Pimlico.
"I finished this book thoroughly convinced by McLynn's thesis about Richard and John, and his book kept me locked to its pages for four hours at a stretch without even stirring to switch on my kettle" -- Murrough O'Brien * Independent on Sunday * "Marvellously readable and strikingly opinionated... McLynn clearly relishes putting the boot into the villain of his piece... This is popular history as it should be written: full blooded, yet firmly grounded in scholarship" -- Nigel Jones * Literary Review * "A rattling good read" * Spectator * "History at its most readable" * Bookseller * "Brilliant... a good example of how fresh scholarship can illuminate dusty but vital corners of history" * The Good Book Guide *
