The Theft of Dorian Gray by Joshua Skye

The Theft of Dorian Gray by Joshua Skye is now available in e-book format!

In an alternative Victorian London Oscar Wilde, the famous journalist, is given an overdose of absinthe while visiting his favorite brothel. Addled by the drug, he watches helplessly as Frederick the Swede steals his precious Writer's Tackle. Disaster! The device contains the draft of his latest masterpiece, The Picture of Dorian Gray, and now it's gone into the stinking alleys of Whitechapel.

His search is almost derailed by the gorgeous rentboy Basil, but their erotic tryst is interrupted by Westborough, a magistrate determined to catch Oscar Wilde in the act and lock him up. Basil and Wilde flee, and with the help of Wilde's old friend Lord Homeward, they manage to outwit the mad magistrate.

But what of the precious manuscript? When Basil sees a picture of Frederick, he recognises the man. But his name isn't Frederick. It's Dorian Gray.
