My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Genre: Historical Fiction/Mystery
Oscar Wilde is by far my favorite character in the book not only is he a great friend towards Conan Doyle but he made me laugh, he actually reminded me a lot of my brother with the way he is about his clothes. At the end Wilde's foresight really astonished me because he seems so self-absorbed that you wouldn't think he could be deliberately calculating as he turns out to be, but in a good way! I didn't find any parts in this tale predictable which for me means a lot since I read so many mysteries/crime/thrillers I normally already know who did it before I even get to the good part (which of course is the reveal of who done it) but this one had me guessing all the way up until the criminal reveals himself to the reader. The coffin scene in the story where Conan Doyle struggles with life and death was outstanding the author's narrative delved into many paranormal incidences surrounding death and coming back from the brink of death. This one was definitely a page-turner for me!
