Both a piece of detective work and a page-turning thriller, and boasts an intriguing denouement.
In this fascinating blend of fact and fiction, the witty broadcaster and former MP brings the outrageous character that was Wilde to vivid life in a tale that has all the elements of a classic English murder-mystery. Huge fun and highly recommended.
Very engaging and full of the agreeable wit for which Brandreth is famous . . . Wilde's mysteries are civilised, accomplished and clever.
Vastly enjoyable . . . a perfectly believable narrative . . . Demonstrating once again Brandreth's assured touch for Victorian time and place, it is a delight, concluding with an interesting suggestion of who the Ripper might have been.
A great deal to enjoy . . . gloriously silly
