Crossover Cover: Death Comes to Pemberley
In 1803, Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy and his wife Elizabeth become involved in the mystery of the murder of Elizabeth’s sister Lydia’s husband George Wickham. Mr. and Mrs. Knightley (from Jane Austen’s novel Emma) are described as the most important people in Highbury, and Wickham’s last employer is identified as Sir Walter Elliot (from Austen’s novel Persuasion). Miss Caroline Bingley is still alive at the time of the novel’s events, which does not fit with her death in 1795 in Win Scott Eckert’s story “The Wild Huntsman,” and therefore I consider this novel an AU.
