Could Fitzwilliam Darcy harbour a shocking, sinister secret?

Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet count themselves among the many guests of the Kendall family, whose estate lies amidst the picturesque hills, gorges, and rocky slopes of the Peak District in Derbyshire. Elizabeth’s cousin Rose Kendall believes her dashing brother-in-law, Captain James Kendall, is Elizabeth’s ideal match. Rose’s husband, Nicholas, hopes his good friend Darcy—a rich, proud, and taciturn gentleman with a spotless reputation—will fancy one of the other eligible lady guests.

News of a brutal killing at a neighbouring estate sends a wave of shock through the genial group of friends and family. When one of the Kendalls’ guests is attacked, all of the gentlemen become suspects, but the former Bow Street runner tasked with investigating the crime finds the evidence against Mr. Darcy particularly compelling.

When faced with dire warnings against Mr. Darcy, will Elizabeth heed them or follow the dictates of her heart?

Saturday, 28 March 1812

Josiah entered the shadowy room. Narrow shafts of light pierced crevices between the closed window coverings to guide his path. A lifelong exposure to harshness and volatility induced the hesitance that encumbered each protracted step. He paused, and one hand smoothed his hair, dishevelled from his travel. His nostrils crinkled. The musty air that pervaded his mother’s room combined with the cloying fragrance her maid applied each morning to assail his senses. He breathed through his mouth and took his usual seat. Soon the smell would no longer be noticeable. He raised his eyes with a smile. “Good day, Mother. I had a successful trip to town.” 

In the faint illumination, Mother’s eyes resembled flinty slits. “So you are home at last. London—always London! You must find a way to work closer to home.” 

He gnashed his teeth. That old complaint again! With several measured breaths, he managed a calm, even tone. “We have reviewed this topic many times. It cannot be helped. This work is much too risky to carry out close to home. The important point is that I have rid England of another sinner. You may rejoice that a blight upon this world has been eliminated.”
