Walter Satterthwait has written more than a dozen novels, including Miss Lizzie and Escapade. His historical mysteries have received universally high praise for the elegant details that color each chapter. The New York Times Book Review calls his works witty, pen-in-cheek adventures.
It is 1882. Oscar Wilde tours the U.S., delivering lectures on art and literature. In each city where he appears, a woman is murdered, dismembered, and flayed. Six people are traveling in Wilde's entourage. Could the monstrous killer be one of them? As a down-on-his-luck lawman investigates, he is pulled into the flamboyant world of the outspoken writer.
Wilde West is a remarkable mystery, filled with quips that could easily have flowed from Wilde's pen. Each character, from luscious heiresses to shadowy servants, is fully realized. Download and start listening now!
