The Highbury Murders

Jane Austen's "Emma" has been described as a detective story without a body - except for those who read carefully, there actually is a body, and the potential for an excellent mystery story.

Set about a year after "Emma" closes, "The Highbury Murders" pays homage to the wit of Jane Austen and the whodunits of Agatha Christie. You do not need to have read Jane Austen's books to enjoy this novel, but if you have - if you regret that she wrote only six - "The Highbury Murders" is a welcome extension to her world. Pour yourself a cup of tea, settle somewhere comfortable, and indulge yourself with the proverbial good read.
