Jane Austen meets Anne Perry in a historical mystery series featuring the hero and heroine from Pride and Prejudice

Following the birth of their first child, Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy are looking forward to enjoying life at Pemberley, but family commitments draw them away to Mansfield Park. There, the Darcys get involved with marriage arrangements, star-crossed lovers, deceit, mistaken identity, and even murder.

Once again the Darcys take center stage as the Regency era's answer to The Thin Man's Nick and Nora in this delightful series by the 2007 Daphne du Maurier Award-winning author of North by Northanger.
