A Murder at Rosings
By Annette Purdey Pugh
When Mr Collins is found stabbed to death in Lady Catherine de Bourgh’s garden, simmering tensions are revealed beneath the elegant Regency surface of the Rosings estate.
The prime suspect is Mr Bennet, who was overheard arguing with Mr Collins over the entail of Longbourn in the days before the murder was committed, and who stands to benefit more than anyone from the Rector’s death.
His daughter Mary uncovers a scandalous secret that holds the key to the murder. Can she prove her father’s innocence in time to save him from the gallows?
From the Editor:
'What I love about this book is that it is beautifully written, with an absolute faithfulness to the language in use at the time. A Murder at Rosings is both a good old-fashioned murder mystery that keeps the reader guessing till the very last page and a sparklingly clever re-imagining of characters from Pride and Prejudice. It's a delightful concoction that will intrigue any Janeite.' Lindsay Ashford, Editor and author of The Mysterious Death of Miss Austen
"If you like Jane Austen you’re going like this, if you like a murder mystery you’re going to like this – it’s a good one!"
Lynn Bowles, Radio Wales.
"an easy, engrossing read."
Nadishka Aloysius (Author)
"beautiful novel worthy of the connection to Ms Austen!"
"imaginative mystery set after the events of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, filled with intrigue, misdirects, and characters that you love to hate."
