Description
 
A summer house party turns into a thrilling whodunit when Jane Austens Mr. Wickham--one of literatures most notorious villains--meets a sudden and suspicious end in this brilliantly imagined mystery featuring Austens leading literary characters.

The happily married Mr. Knightley and Emma are throwing a party at their country estate, bringing together distant relatives and new acquaintances--characters beloved by Jane Austen fans. Definitely not invited is Mr. Wickham, whose latest financial scheme has netted him an even broader array of enemies. As tempers flare and secrets are revealed, its clear that everyone would be happier if Mr. Wickham got his comeuppance. Yet theyre all shocked when Wickham turns up murdered--except, of course, for the killer hidden in their midst.

Nearly everyone at the house party is a suspect, so it falls to the partys two youngest guests to solve the mystery: Juliet Tilney, the smart and resourceful daughter of Catherine and Henry, eager for adventure beyond Northanger Abbey; and Jonathan Darcy, the Darcys eldest son, whose adherence to propriety makes his father seem almost relaxed. In this tantalizing fusion of Austen and Christie, from New York Times bestselling author Claudia Gray, the unlikely pair must put aside their own poor first impressions and uncover the guilty party--before an innocent person is sentenced to hang.
