    Description

    Death Comes To Pemberley, written by P. D. James, is a fictional murder mystery presented as a sequel to Pride And Prejudice, Jane Austen’s literary classic from 1813. The prologue recounts the highlights of the prequel which ended with the marriage of Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy and Miss Elizabeth Bennet. It presents the blissful life of the Darcys, and introduces some of the other characters of the story. The first chapter focuses on the eve of the annual autumn ball, which brings with it a shocking news of murder that sets the stage for the frightening events that follow. As the plot unravels, secrets from the past come tumbling out and take the spotlight once again. Pemberley is shrouded in mystery and the seemingly perfect life of the Darcys is in danger of falling apart dramatically. This edition of the book was published in 2011. It received positive reviews, especially thanks to James’ evocative storytelling and memorable characters.


    Phyllis Dorothy (P. D.) James is a crime writer from England. She was born on August 3, 1920, in Oxford. At the age of 16, financial and family troubles forced her to leave school and take up work. She later studied hospital management and became an employee of a hospital board in London. James has written books like An Unsuitable Job For A Woman, The Children Of Men, and Innocent Blood. However, she is best known for her detective series starring Adam Dalgliesh, a policeman, who is also a poet. James was inducted into the International Crime Writing Hall of Fame in 2008.

    Simply Superb. Must read for Austen fans

    Its simply a continuation from where Jane Austen left off. This enchanting book takes us back to the 1800s complete with its ambience, and characters and adds a touch of mystery to the Austen atmosphere. Although the mystery itself is not as riveting as Adam Dalgliesh ones, the book should be read for its loyalty to the classical setting and the gumption of the author to continue such a simple timeless tale in such a different genre and yet make something so delightful and seamless out of it.
