About the Book

It was the trial of the century that shocked England to its core…

The whole of England is agog with the revelation that one of its favourite playwrights, Oscar Wilde has been accused of homosexuality and has brought a court action against his accuser in the hope of retrieving his good character.

When disturbing information is brought to light regarding the famous names that are likely to be dropped in open court and the dark crimes they may have committed, Detective Inspector Percy Enright and his nephew Detective Sergeant Jack Enright are ordered to suppress the scandal.

But when a leading peer goes missing, the caseload at Scotland Yard is stretched to the limit…

With two intermingled investigations and a fresh eye needed to spot the connections between them, Jack’s wife Esther, bored to distraction by domestic duties, finds herself involved once again…

Together they embark on another investigation into the seedier elements of late Victorian society. The Enrights are hopeful that this time they won’t be put in any personal danger.

But one can never be entirely certain…..

The Posing Playwright is the fifth crime thriller by David Field in an exciting new historical series, the Esther and Jack Enright Mysteries.
