Review: Traitors of the Tower by Alison Weir

A short introduction to some of the most famous, or infamous, prisoners of the Tower of London.

This serves as a good introduction for people who aren't already familiar with some of these famous historical stories, but it's also a good reference for those who have heard them before, and you might still learn something new too. Apparently, Margaret Pole did not run around the scaffold with the executioner chasing after her. For some reason, I thought that myth was true.

Although each chapter is understandably short given the length of the whole book, it manages to pack a lot in and presents it in an easily read style.
