OSCAR WILDE AND A GAME CALLED MURDER, by Gyles Brandreth

2/series. London, 1890's. At a meeting of the Socrates Club, founded and led by the fabulous Oscar Wilde, the host asks his guests to play a game: who would you murder if you could? Over objections from guests Bram Stoker and Arthur Conan Doyle, the game proceeds to its uncomfortable end. Later, victims begin to die in unusual circumstances. But who among the guests, most well known to Wilde and his closest friends, could be the killer? As the clock ticks toward Wilde's own name, he must find the killer or fall victim himself. A 4. At this point, there's only six in the series; a perfect gift for a Wilde aficionado. The author is a TV host, speaker, entertainer, and writer (also a former British MP), and his well-organized website is fun to visit.
