'The curse of fictionalising well-known characters is having to manoeuvre within the facts, but Brandreth manages it superlatively. This is light stuff, but energetic, and Brandreth clearly has Wilde at heart' (Financial Times)
Praise for the Oscar Wilde Series
'Gyles Brandreth and Oscar Wilde seem made for each other'(Daily Telegraph)
'A cast of historical characters to die for' (Sunday Times)
'Genius . . . Wilde has sprung back to life in this thrilling and richly atmospheric new novel' (Sunday Express)
'A witty fin-de-siecle entertainment . . . rattlingly elegant dialogue' (Sunday Times)
'Very entertaining' (Literary Review)
'A flight of imagination that partners Oscar Wilde and Arthur Conan Doyle in a deadly pursuit to the heart of the Eternal City merits a round of applause for sheer chutzpah . . . Gyles Brandreth succeeds magnificently . . . The relationship between the two writers is drawn so convincingly, but there is also dialogue of the period without any Victorian heaviness and a plot that is intriguing throughout. Brandreth's research is impeccable. Literary and theological references merge easily into a skilfully crafted story that goes all the way to meet the standards set by his two eminent protagonists' (Daily Mail)
'Brandreth has always delighted in puzzles, in the quirks of both the past and present, and in the gloriously camp wit of Oscar Wilde. Here all of these things come together in a story that reminds us how enjoyable a well-told traditional murder mystery can be' (Scotsman)
'Brandreth's deftly plotted, entertaining escapades double as historical novels of considerable merit . . . Brandreth is a deft hand at weaving plot, historical atmosphere and entertaining characters' (Historical Novels Review)
'Brandreth's portrait of Oscar Wilde is entirely plausible; plots are ingenious and the historical backgroud is fascinating' (Scotsman)
In OSCAR WILDE AND THE MURDERS AT READING GAOL, the sixth in Gyles Brandreth's acclaimed Oscar Wilde Murder Mysteries series featuring Oscar Wilde and Arthur Conan Doyle, Reading Gaol's most famous prisoner is pitted against a ruthless and fiendishly clever serial killer. 'Intelligent, amusing and entertaining' Alexander McCall SmithSee all Product description

The plot was ingenious but readers maybe able to see the twist this time
I would recommend any of the series as the they are well written and interesting and the character of Wilde is always a joy although in this book he is more subdued than usual
works and Mr.Brandreth does him full justice in the whole series of books.
