A Deadly Spin on a Classic


Enjoy a beloved Jane Austen favorite in a whole new way. Celebrated British writer P.D. James brings murder and mystery to the world of Pride and Prejudice in her new novel, Death Comes to Pemberley. Six years after Elizabeth and Darcy married and began their happily-ever-after life together, their world turns upside-down when Elizabeth's sister Lydia comes to their doorstep, screaming that her husband has been murdered. Austen's characters are thrown into a shocking murder-mystery, crafted with James' signature whodunit brilliance. Pride & Prejudice adaptations run the gamut from great to atrocious, but this one does justice to the classic tale. It's the perfect mix for thriller fans and Austenites alike.
