Oscar Wilde and the Murders at Reading Gaol

(2012)
(The sixth book in the Oscar Wilde series)
A novel by

 
In this new installment in the engaging mystery series Booklist called "pitch-perfect" and "enthralling" - currently in development as a BBC television series - the incomparable playwright, novelist, raconteur, and now ex-convict Oscar Wilde faces his most fiendishly puzzling case yet.

It is 1897, France. Oscar Wilde has fled the country after his release from Reading Gaol. Tonight he is sharing a drink and the story of his cruel imprisonment with a mysterious stranger. Oscar has endured a harsh regime: the treadmill, solitary confinement, censored letters, no writing materials. Yet even in the midst of such deprivation, his astonishing detective powers remain undiminished - and when first a brutal warder and then the prison chaplain are found murdered, who else should the Governor turn to for help other than Reading Gaol's most celebrated inmate?
