Death Comes to Pemberly by P.D. James

A few years after Pride & Prejudice, Darcy and Elizabeth have settled at Pemberley.  The night before their annual ball - a dark stormy night - Mr. Wickham's friend is found murdered in the Pemberley woods.  And Wickham is the primary suspect!  A murder investigation and trial follows, forcing Darcy to come face to face with his pride.  Or was it his prejudice?  

The lawyer in me enjoyed a peek at how investigations and trials were handled in the 1800s.  And the Jane Austen fan in me loved imagining how Darcy and Elizabeth might have ended up.
