Mysteries aren't my favourite genre, but I am a fan of Oscar Wilde, hence the interest in this book. It was good, but a little underwhelming. Perhaps I had been expecting too much. The story was off to a good start but, for me, died off a little in the middle just where it should have been picking up the most. I found the frequent changes in events - while consistent with the character portrayed - distracting and, in the end, the flow was interrupted. I was more interested in the character of Oscar Wilde than the mystery itself. That being said, I thoroughly enjoyed that character and the many witticisms present in the text.
