Death Comes to Pemberley by PD James
The story is set in 1803. Darcy and Elizabeth and of course Jane and Bingley have both been married happily for six years and their nurseries are filling up and life is moving along smoothly.
The only problems on the horizon is which of Georgina’s suitors will she choose and will Lady Anna’s yearly ball be the high light of the season.
That is until Lydia arrives uninvited screaming at the top of her lungs in a speeding chaise.
She is screaming that Wickham is dead and this is where the fun starts.
Deep interwoven stories have to come to light and a murderer has to be found. Some of the twists and turns take you into the lives of the people in and around the Pemberley Estate.
The emotions are laid open for you to immerse yourself into the story following the police as they try with the very limited resources of the times to solve the crime. No finger printing or DNA for them to work with here and even a murder weapon is nowhere to be found.
I very much enjoyed this book and am happy to recommend it to you especially if you enjoy a good period who dunnit.
Thank you P.D. James for giving us this one.
