About the book

The fourth of Gyles Brandreth's acclaimed series of Victorian murder mysteries, Oscar Wilde and the Nest of Vipers opens in the spring of 1890 at a glamorous reception hosted by the Duke and Duchess of Albemarle. All London's haut monde is there, including the Prince of Wales, who counts the Albemarles as close friends.  Although it is the first time Oscar and Bertie have met, Oscar seems far more interested in Rex LaSalle, a young actor, who disarmingly claims to be a vampire...

 

However, what begins as a diverting evening ends in tragedy.  As the guests are leaving, the Duchess is found murdered, two tiny puncture marks in her throat.  No one has entered the house; no one has left.  Desperate to avoid another scandal, the Prince of Wales asks Oscar to investigate the crime.  What he discovers threatens to destroy the very heart of the Royal Family...

Read Review   Want to write a review?

'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'

'A cast of historical characters to die for'

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

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

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'
