Frank Muller’s intimate whisper into the ear of the listener’s imagination suits this historical mystery, featuring the amusing thoughts and actions of Oscar Wilde on a literary tour of America in 1882. Wherever Wilde speaks on the Western flank of the tour, a prostitute with red hair turns up disemboweled and flayed. Muller excels at switching from normal speaking prose to the fragmented, demented thought of a psychotic serial killer. This book contains X-rated murder scenes as well as the usual suspects: the soothing French countess, the hustling New York impresario, the alcoholic journalist, the German intellectual, and the irresistible Elizabeth Court Doe. WILDE WEST speaks to the literary whimsy in us. M.D.H. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 02]
