Society truly can be murder…

1890: Famous author Oscar Wilde is a guest at a glamorous, high-society party hosted by the Duke and Duchess of Albemarle – even the Prince of Wales has turned up for the festivities.

But the evening ends in tragedy when the Duchess is found murdered.

No one apart from the invited guests have entered the house; no one has left. And it is only Wilde and his friend Arthur Conan Doyle, author of Sherlock Holmes, who have seen the puncture marks on the Duchess’s neck…

Desperate to avoid another scandal, the Prince appeals to the two writers to investigate the crime and protect the reputation of the royal family.

But as they investigate further, the eerie details of the case threaten to pull them into a darker plot than they could have ever imagined…

A wonderfully witty and gripping cosy historical mystery that will send tingles up your spine. Perfect for fans of Sherlock Holmes, Agatha Christie and Richard Osman.
