The Prosecution of Mr. Darcy's Cousin by Regina Jeffers
· Finalist in Historical Mystery, 2016 Daphne du Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery/Suspense
Fitzwilliam Darcy is
enjoying his marital bliss. His wife, the former
Elizabeth Bennet, presented him two sons and a world of
contentment. All is well until “aggravation” rears its
head when Darcy receives a note of urgency from his
sister Georgiana. In truth, Darcy never fully approved
of Georgiana’s joining with their cousin, Major General
Edward Fitzwilliam, for Darcy assumed the major general
held Georgiana at arm’s length, dooming Darcy’s sister
to a life of unhappiness.|
Dutifully, Darcy and Elizabeth rush to Georgiana’s side when the major general leaves his wife and daughter behind, with no word of his whereabouts and no hopes of Edward’s return. Forced to seek his cousin in the slews of London’s underbelly, at length, Darcy discovers the major general and returns Fitzwilliam to his family.
Even so, the Darcys’ troubles are far from over. During the major general’s absence from home, witnesses note Fitzwilliam’s presence in the area of two horrific murders. When Edward Fitzwilliam is arrested for the crimes, Darcy must discover the real culprit before his cousin is hanged for the crimes and the Fitzwilliam name marked with shame.
