It is 1803, six years since Elizabeth and Darcy embarked on their life together at Pemberley, Darcy's magnificent estate. Their peaceful, orderly world seems almost unassailable. Elizabeth has found her footing as the chatelaine of the great house. They have two fine sons, Fitzwilliam and Charles. Elizabeth's sister Jane and her husband, Bingley, live nearby; her father visits often; there is optimistic talk about the prospects of marriage for Darcy's sister Georgiana. And preparations are under way for their much-anticipated annual autumn ball. But now, Pemberley is thrown into chaos after Elizabeth Bennett's disgraced sister Lydia arrives and announces that her husband Wickham has been murdered.… (mais)

Disappointingly boring. I'm pretty on-board when it comes to sequels written by people other than the original author (professional fanfiction, I guess), but boring is pretty hard to overlook. The mini-series was really much better (Lizzy actually got to do things and there was a spooky atmosphere to it versus zero atmosphere). ( )

Novel use of Pride and Prejudice characters and relationships to weave a story of murder and events following the end of the original story. ( )

I don't really believe in sequels written by different authors, and, although this is not such a desecratory experience as, say, William Horwood's Wind in the Willows sequels, it really should either not have been written or the names should have been changed. If the names had been changed, there would have been no indication of who the characters were intended to be anyway. Elizabeth, in particular, suffers a severe dulling down. This book was OK, almost on the level of a decent Georgette Heyer, nowhere near Jane Austen though. ( )

Not much to say that hasn't been said...
If you write this book as a plain book, not as a Jane Austen sequel, then you've got a 3 or 3.5 star book. As a sequel...let's face it, the characters were both flat and sort of ruined. The first third of the book was painful to get through and I almost stopped many times. Then the story leaves the Austen realm and it seems like the author isn't trying to make a sequel but rather write a story that she is good at writing. It starts to pick up after that. If you can forget the real characters and stop comparing them to how they really should be the story becomes more compelling and interesting. I, however, had a hard time with her interpretation of some of the dearest and best characters of all time. I do not like the subtle shifts she made to their personality and they all became less witty :) For me, this would have been much better as a stand alone book not based on people I love :) ( )

A good mystery, but surprisingly little detecting! P. D. James does a great job of channeling Jane Austen for this one. She was also very helpful in giving a good summary of the pertinent facts of Pride and Prejudice for those who hadn't read it or read it a long time ago. Very satisfying and quite the page turner! Rosalyn Landor was a good reader, but we did have some trouble determining who was speaking as she didn't really have a variety of voices to use. The men's voices were different from the women's, but difficult to distinguish one woman from another or one man from another. ( )

. . . an excellent period mystery, replete with all manner of mayhem, and a most welcome way to revisit Elizabeth and Darcy. . .

Really, gentle reader, there are limits. When mystery grande dame P. D. James felt the mantle of Jane Austen fall on her shoulders, why didn't she simply shrug it off? James places a template of Austen characters and Austen-like language over a traditional mystery plot. The mystery is set in 1803, six years after the wedding of Elizabeth and Darcy, with ample space given to catching us up on the recent doings of the Bennet family. On the mystery side, there's plenty of action, from the discovery of Captain Denny's body, through a trial, assorted deceptions and mix-ups, and love affairs. Unfortunately, though, if this is meant as an homage, it's a pretty weak cup of tea. James' many fans will be pleased to see any kind of new book from the 91-year-old author, but discriminating Austen devotees are unlikely to appreciate the move from social comedy to murder.

Author's note: 
I owe an apology to the shade of Jane Austen for involving her beloved Elizabeth in the trauma of a murder investigation, especially as in the final chapter of Mansfield Park Miss Austen made her views quite plain: 'Let other pens dwell on guilt and misery. I quit such odious subjects as soon as I can, impatient to restore everybody not greatly in fault themselves to tolerable comfort, and to have done with all the rest.' No doubt she would have replied to my apology by saying that, had she wished to dwell on such odious subjects, she would have written this story herself, and done it better.
Here we sit at the beginning of a new century, citizens of the most civilised country in Europe, surrounded by the splendour of its craftsmanship, its art and the books which enshrine its literature, while outside there is another world which wealth and education and privilege can keep from us, a world in which men are as violent and destructive as in the animal world. Perhaps even the most fortunate of us will not be able to ignore it and keep it at bay for ever.
Simon Cartwright’s management of the prosecution was now apparent and Darcy could appreciate its cleverness. The story would be told scene by scene, imposing both coherence and credibility on the narrative and producing in court as it unfolded something of the excited expectancy of a theatre. But what else, thought Darcy, but public entertainment was a trial for murder? The actors clothed for the parts assigned for them to play, the buzz of happy comment and anticipation before the character assigned to the next scene appeared, and then the moment of high drama when the chief actor entered the dock from which no escape was possible before facing the final scene: life or death. This was English law in practice, a law respected throughout Europe, and how else could such a decision be made, in all its terrible finality, with more justice? He had been subpoenaed to be present but, gazing round at the crowded courtroom, the bright colours and waving headdresses of the fashionable and the drabness of the poor, he felt ashamed to be one of them.
