Death Comes to Pemberley\Der Tod kommt nach Pemberley, englische Ausgabe
The year is 1803, and Darcy and Elizabeth have been married for six
years. There are now two handsome and healthy sons in the Pemberley
nursery, Elizabeth's beloved sister Jane and her husband,
Bingley, live within seventeen miles, the ordered and secure life
of Pemberley seems unassailable, and Elizabeth's happiness in
her marriage is complete.
But their peace is threatened and old sins and misunderstandings
are rekindled on the eve of the annual autumn ball. The Darcys and
their guests are preparing to retire for the night when a chaise
appears, rocking down the path from Pemberley's wild woodland,
and as it pulls up, Lydia Wickham, an uninvited guest, tumbles out,
screaming that her husband has been murdered.
#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"
