Death Comes to Pemberley by by P.D. James

| |

What happens when an Austen favorite meets a modern master storyteller? A classic whodunit is born. Mystery replaces romance in P.D. James’ Death Comes to Pemberley. When an inexplicable murder occurs on Pemberley’s grounds, Elizabeth, Darcy, and the scoundrel Wickham are forced together again. James creates an oppressive atmosphere that is not relieved until the mystery is resolved. She does not attempt a precise imitation of Austen’s tone, but careful readers will hear echoes of Austen’s 19th century voice and recognize a little of James’s detective Dalgliesh in Mr. Darcy.
