It is the eve of the Darcys' annual ball at their magnificent Pemberley estate. Darcy and Elizabeth, now six years married, are relaxing with their guests after supper when a scream calls them to the window. Horse and carriage careens up the drive, hysterical Lydia Wickham tumbles out shrieking, "Murder!" What follows is the somber discovery of a dead man in Pemberley woods, a brother accused of murder, and the beginning of a nightmare that will threaten to engulf Pemberley and all the Darcy’s hold dear. Adapted from P.D. James clever whodunit.
