Death Comes to Pemberley by P.D. James

Death Comes to Pemberley by P.D. James.  If Jane Austen herself did not actually write at least the first chapter of this book, surely P.D. James was channeling her when she wrote it.  Did you ever wonder what happened after Jane and Bingley and Elizabeth and Darcy married?  P.D. James enlightens us in this delightful sequel to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.  There is a murder at Pemberley and the morally challenged brother-in-law and husband of Lydia, Wickham, is the obvious suspect.  The murder sets the stage for the delicate interactions among the characters from Pride and Prejudice.  A delightful, pleasant read.

At age 92, P.D. James is still dazzling us with her amazing talent.
