Death Comes to Pemberley

Death Comes to Pemberley, by P.D. James

Veteran mystery writer P.D. James, 91, brings the world of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice back to life with a sequel. Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy are happily married, with two young sons, and visit regularly with Jane and Mr. Bingley. Darcy’s sister Georgiana has two suitors, Henry Alveston, a young lawyer, and Col. Fitzwilliam, who is now heir to an earldom.

Preparing for an annual ball at Pemberley, they are startled by the sudden arrival on a stormy night of Lydia Wickham, Jane and Elizabeth’s sister, claiming that her husband is missing, and possibly dead, in the Pemberley woods. Darcy and Elizabeth have a challenging time dealing with the night and its consequences, from cancelling the ball to a murder trial. 

Splendid entertainment for mystery and Austen fans.
