Great News for Mystery Fans and Those Who Love the Classics!

Great News for Mystery Fans and Those Who Love the Classics! In a marvelous, thrilling re-creation of the world of Pride and Prejudice, P.D. James fuses her lifelong passion for the work of Jane Austen with her own great talent for writing crime fiction.
Yes… P.D. James! She explains her decision to write the novel in this Telegraph interview. For the 91-year-old crime novelist, best known for her police procedural mystery series featuring British policeman Adam Dalgliesh, Death Comes to Pemberley (M) combines two personal passions.
Great News for Mystery Fans and Those Who Love the Classics! “I have to apologize to Jane Austen for involving her beloved Elizabeth in a murder investigation, but this fusion of my two enthusiasms — for the novels of Jane Austen and for writing detective stories — has given me great pleasure which I hope will be shared by my readers,” James said in a recent statement.
Death comes to Pemberley is coming soon to our fiction shelves and is now available in ebook format.
As a life-long fan of P.D. James and Jane Austin, this news comes like a wonderful gift wrapped in festive paper.
The novel takes place roughly six years after the marriage of Darcy and Elizabeth. They are now the parents of two boys. In the process of hosting an autumn ball, an uninvited guest arrives and proclaims that her husband has been murdered. The result is that Pemberley’s peaceful tranquility is threatened by past sins and old misunderstandings…
Intrigued? Checkout The London Evening Standard’s review of the novel.
I haven’t had the pleasure of reading it yet, but just know that I’m sure to enjoy it. What a wonderful early Christmas gift.
