Pride & Prejudice & Assassinations (Pride & Prejudice & Assassinations #1)
This book is meant to fit in the cracks of Jane Austen's original tale, with a twist in the plot. It is the first book in a series meant to set the stage for several follow ups. It has also been written in a similar style as Jane, updated slightly to the 21st century, and using some of her original text. I fully realize this type of read is not for everyone. Please feel free to use the free view on the kindle page to determine if you will care for this writing style.
In the early part of the 19th century the Nobility of England was awash with intrigue, scandal, war, and romance. On the outer fringe of these events is the Bennet family, consisting of five daughters, a stately father, and a mother determined to see her daughters married. Into this setting comes two gentlemen; the handsome Mr. Bingley, intent on enjoying society, and the imposing Mr. Darcy, intent on more serious matters.
The world of the era was changing rapidly and lapses in honour amongst the French gentry had already led to an uprising within their country; which in turn led to the rise of such individuals as Napoleon. Industry, and movements in wealth amongst the common man, also threatened the ideals of the gentry, as many an individual could now move amongst the social classes in ways never before encountered.
Not oblivious to these threats, the highest order had tasked the Darcy family with the responsibilities to uphold the integrity of English society. Should a nobleman or member of the gentry transgress those ideals, or come to harm the innocent,the Darcy family would deal with it accordingly.
