The queen of mystery has taken on the queen of literature, [and] the combination sings. . . . [James ] elegance and sly wit are in top form. "The Plain Dealer"
The greatest pleasure of this novel is its unforced, effortless, effective voice Not infrequently . . . one succumbs to the impression that it is Austen herself at the keyboard. "The New York Times Book Review

If you appreciate mysteries as well as the Mighty Jane, this pleasant entertainment will do nicely. . . . It is a universe of dark meanings [and] hidden relationships. "Los Angeles Times

James rises well above the ever-growing pack of Austen-inspired authors, not only for her intimate familiarity with Austen s work, but for her faultless replication of time, place and, most notably, Austen s trademark writing style. "Newark Star-Ledger"
With well-laid clues, James weaves a credible tale with a satisfying conclusion. . . . She stamps this enticing blend of two authors minds with her formidable intelligence and the generosity of spirit that has marked all her work. "Richmond Times Dispatch"
Dazzling . . . Meticulously plotted . . . In my view "Death Comes to Pemberley" is as good as anything P.D. James has written and that is very high praise indeed Long may she continue to delight and surprise us. Simon Brett, "Sunday Express"
Brimming with astute appreciation, inventiveness and narrative zest, "Death Comes to Pemberley" is an elegantly gauged homage to Austen and an exhilarating tribute to the inexhaustible vitality of James s imagination. "The" "Sunday Times" (London)

The final working-out shows all James s customary ingenuity. . . . The stylistic pastiche is remarkably accomplished. "Kirkus Reviews"
A pleasing and agreeable sequel Historical mystery buffs and Jane Austen fans alike will welcome this homage Attentive readers will eagerly seek out clues to the delightfully complex mystery, which involves many hidden motives and dark secrets. "Publishers Weekly"
