Death comes to Pemberley
Inspired by a lifelong passion for the work of Jane Austen, PD James masterfully recreates the world of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, and combines it with the sus- pense of a brilliantly-crafted crime story. DEATH COMES TO PEMBERLEY takes place in the year 1803, when Darcy and Elizabeth have been married for six years and the orderly world of Pemberley seems unassailable. But all this is threatened when, on the eve of the annual autumn ball, the guests are preparing to retire for the night when a chaise appears, with Elizabeth's younger, unreliable sister screaming that her husband has been murdered.
