Brandreth ends this mystery where it begins, in Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum in London where Oscar Wilde shares the tale with Arthur Conan Doyle. Narrated engagingly by British actor Bill Wallis, this is a story of Wilde's trips to America and Paris where he becomes enmeshed in the lives of a French acting family. The -LaGrange troupe is comprised of Edmund LaGrange, his mother, twin adult children, his dresser, and a hired cowboy companion who is working off a gambling debt. Wilde becomes increasingly curious about the -LaGrange family dynamics as one tragedy after another strikes. Told primarily from the viewpoint of LaGrange's dresser, the plot provides enough twists and turns to ensure the listener's attention. VERDICT Recommended for all who love literary mysteries.-Cheryl Youse, Moultrie, GA (c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
