The 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.
