review 1: I've skipped out of order slightly to read this one - but as I get these from the library I'm not being picky. I don't think I've ruined the book in between this one and the last that I read either!I enjoyed this book - a little bit like a Victorian Da Vinci code - with a little...

review 1: The book had begun promisingly, with a multiple P-O-V structure, interspersed with adequately gothic tropes, dastardly crimes, and (finally!) Arthur Conan Doyle in fine form. But then it fizzled out like stale soda, with a rushed-yet-pointless ending. Something is seriously wrong...

review 1: Oscar Wilde portrays wit at its pinnacle!! "I like men who have a future, and women who have a past" - Wilde really passes suave, witty comments! The book is very intelligently written, destined to amuse and entertain you while keeping the same suspense of the murders throughout ...

review 1: Another very entertaining book in the series. I loved the theater atmosphere in Paris and Oscar’s excursion to the US. There are several great scenes which allude to Oscar Wilde’s later life (or death) like his visit to Reading gaol, his statement that he hopes his children will ...

review 1: One of the many horrors of Christmas is being bought books which those who understand you very poorly think you might enjoy. This was just such a volume. If you're the sort of person who calls a quotation 'a quote', or who buys a fridge magnet with a 'saying' of Oscar Wilde on it...

review 1: Vastly superior compared to the last couple of books in this series, this one had maintained quite a grip over me for the past few days. It had Arthur Conan Doyle had its narrator, which really had improved the narrative. Also, the curious fact that the actual mystery had to be d...

review 1: Murder will out but uncovering the murderer almost proves incidental as we are given the grand tour of England—its royal halls, opium dens, hotels, music halls and restaurants. The novel is lush in its descriptions of late 19-century Britannia but the author wisely keeps us focus...

review 1: Another thrilling installment. As always, I feel the need to read more by and about dear Mr. Wilde. However, Brandreth's research is extensive and also has a personal connection, being friends with his grandson and took tea as a student with a teacher who had known Oscar and Cons...
