Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Review: 2020.286 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: Jack Saul is a historical figure, as was the Cleveland Street Scandal, but most of the action here is in the setting of Oscar Wilde’s novel. A lot of attention has been paid to the historical details and to the details of the novel.

Con: Outside the elements imposed by history and the novel, there’s almost nothing to this story.
