Oscar Wilde and the Murders at Reading Gaol (title in UK & USA)

Book Description | Excerpt | Reading Group Guide | Q & A with Gyles


It is 1895, and Oscar Wilde has been sentenced to prison for indecency. He eventually lands in Reading Gaol and must submit to harsh rules for inmates, including no speaking and wearing a hood at all times while outside of his cell. He endures this isolation, but when two prison workers die under mysterious circumstances, Wilde must crack the case – this time without the help of Arthur Conan Doyle, long-time friend and crime-solving collaborator. Now Wilde must identify and stop the killer, or risk becoming the next victim.
