P.D. James
Death Comes to Pemberley

     If you are a Jane Austen fan, and wonder what happens to Elizabeth Bennet and Darcy after their marriage, this is the book for you. Written by P.D. James, a well-known author of mysteries, the story is told in the style of Jane Austen.  The book begins 6 years after Elizabeth and Darcy embark on their life together at Pemberley.  On the eve of an annual ball held at their estate, a coach tears up the drive carrying Lydia, Elizabeth's disgraced sister, who with her husband, Wickham, has been banned from Pemberley.  Lydia stumbles out of the carriage, screaming that Wickham has been murdered. And so begins the mystery, combining the proper world of Jane Austen with the intrigue and suspense of P. D. James, for a story that will satisfy fans of both authors. Check our catalog.
