Whatever could have made Elizabeth Bennet murder her cousin Mr. Collins and leave him dead in a field? The evidence against Elizabeth seems overwhelming, but young Mary Bennet is convinced her sister is innocent and is determined to prove it.
Unexpected – and unwelcome – help soon arrives in the form of a young investigator from London named Alexander Lyons, and from the odious Mr. Darcy. Charged with discovering the truth behind the clergyman’s death, Lyons sets about discovering what he can of the victim and the accused. But there are more matters at play than anybody expected.
As the case grows more and more complicated, Mary and Alexander cannot stop arguing, and discover that each brings new insight into the case. But as they get close to some answers, will they survive the plans of an evildoer in the midst of quiet Meryton?
