Pride & Prejudice + Murder = The Ultimate Jane Austen Sequel?

Crime thriller readers and Jane Austen fanatics don’t usually seem like they have much in common, but one famous writer may be bringing them together. P.D. James, who the NY Times calls “the greatest living writer of British crime fiction,” has written a sequel to Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice called Death Comes to Pemberley.

Many beloved characters return to the page, but this time, instead of navigating the pitfalls of romance and marriage (or fighting zombies for that matter), our heroine and hero are faced with a murder mystery that hits dangerously close to home.

Intrigued? Check out this NY Times Review and this Telegraph interview with P.D. James.
