From The Bookseller, we learn that this November 3rd, the UK will get a new crime novel by P.D. James, and it’s all-the-way Austen with Death Comes to Pemberley:

“The book is set in 1803, and the Darcys are happily settled with two sons, with Elizabeth’s sister Jane and her husband Bingley living close by. However, on the night before the annual autumn ball, Elizabeth and Jane’s youngest sister, Lydia Wickham, arrives uninvited, screaming that her husband has been murdered.”

So far, we can’t tell when it will be available here, but we hope not to have to wait too long. *hint* We’ve already got long gloves and empire-waisted gowns ready for book club.
