This is a good book, a cracking mystery, well written by the genius of Gyles Brandreth. I settled down expecting to enjoy the fourth instalment in his Oscar Wilde murder mystery series, which take the central premise that Oscar Wilde solved murders in his spare time with his friends such as Arthur Conan Doyle. Only I didn't get the fourth instalment in the series...what I actually found is that I'd bought a hard cover reprint of the second book in the series retitled from the witty play on words of the English title (The Ring Of Death) to the much more obvious Game Called Murder for the American market. So if you have bought The Ring Of Death don't bother buying this, and be careful in future, because from what I have read the other Oscar Wilde Murder Mysteries are also being republished for the American market under new titles also.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great murder mystery 7 Feb 2010
IMPORTANT - This book is also published under 'O W and the ring of death'. I loved the first book in this series - 'OW and the candlelight murders', and I think this one is even better. I couldn't see how these murders had been done and Oscar's explaination at the end was surprising and satisfying. Brandreth really knows about Wilde; sometimes I can't tell if the Oscar's witicisms are real Wilde quotes or inventions by Brandreth. And it's nice to see books which do not focus on Wilde's sexuality, but show his wit and sophistication too.

1.0 out of 5 stars A right rip off! 17 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was very disappointed to realise, after I had bought this book, that it was a retitled version of an already published title.
While no blame can be attributed to either Amazon or the seller, the publisher needs to be squarely castigated for ripping off readers
