(The Cadogan Hotel, Room 118 was frequently patronised by Oscar Wilde and was where his infamous arrest took place. It was also where Gyles Brandreth held his Oscar Wilde party on the anniversary of Wilde's birth and his book launch). A Fine unmarked copy with Fine dustjacket. xxv + 325 pages. Second printing. It is 1897, Dieppe. Oscar Wilde, poet, playwright, novelist, raconteur and ex-convict, has fled the country after his release from Reading Gaol. Tonight he is sharing a drink and the story of his cruel imprisinment with a mysterious stranger. He has endured a harsh regime: the treadmill, solitary confinement, censored letters, no writing materials. Yet even in the midst of such deprivation, Oscar's 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? 111. Fine/Fine. Signed by Author.
