Product description


Praise for Oscar Wilde and the Dead Man's Smile

'Brandreth's portrait of Oscar Wilde is entirely plausible; plots are ingenious and the historical backgroud is fascinating'


'Cleverly plotted, intelligent and thoroughly diverting . . . This novel is an educated page-turner; a feast of intriguing and light-hearted entertainment' (Good Book Guide)

Praise for Oscar Wilde and the Ring of Death
'Hugely enjoyable'

(Daily Mail)

'A cast of historical characters to die for' (Sunday Times)

'A carnival of cliff-hangers and fiendish twists-and-turns . . . The joy of the book . . . is the rounded and compelling presentation of the character of Wilde . . . The imaginary and the factual are woven together with devilish ingenuity. Brandreth also gives his hero speeches of great beauty and wisdom and humanity' (Sunday Express)

Reviews for Oscar Wilde and the Nest of Vipers

'I don't know how he does it [*I do, actually: great talent and damned hard work*] but Gyles Brandreth's Oscar Wilde Murder Mysteries get better and better.... positively dazzling. Oscar is on sunny form, but the clouds are gathering. Like its central character, Oscar Wilde and the Nest of Vipers is both witty and profound. It's also devilishly clever.'

(The District Messenger - Newsletter of the Sherlock Holmes Society)

Book Description
