    DescriptionThe year is 1803, and Darcy and Elizabeth have been married for six years. There are now two handsome and healthy sons in the nursery, Elizabeth's beloved sister Jane and her husband Bingley live nearby 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, rocking down the path from Pemberley's wild woodland. As it pulls up, Lydia Wickham - Elizabeth's younger, unreliable sister - stumbles out screaming that her husband has been murdered. 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 excitement and suspense of a brilliantly-crafted crime story. "Death Comes to Pemberley" is a distinguished work of fiction, from one of the best-loved, most-read writers of our time.

    Review quote
    #1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER"A sparkling curio that will appeal to both Janeites and Jamesites." --"Daily Telegraph"" ""Jane Austen herself would have applauded." --"The Spectator" "A great joint achievement, and a joyous read." --"The Independent"" ""Death Comes to Pemberley is as good as anything P. D. James has written and that is very high praise indeed." --"Sunday Express" "A delight. It reads happily and, as ever in P. D. James's novels, the settings are beautifully and thoroughly imagined, the descriptions and exact. I can't think that it could be better done." --"The Scotsman"" ""Brimming with astute appreciation, inventiveness and narrative zest, Death Comes to Pemberley is an elegantly gauged homage to Austen and an exhilarating tribute to the inexhaustible vitality of James's imagination." --"The Sunday Times" "Of all the other pens to take up where Austen left off, P. D. James's is head and shoulders above the rest." --"Evening Standard"
