あらすじ・解説

A summer house party turns into a thrilling whodunit when Jane Austen's Mr. Wickham—one of literature’s most notorious villains—meets a sudden and suspicious end in this brilliantly imagined mystery featuring Austen’s leading literary characters.

The happily married Mr. Knightley and Emma are throwing a party at their country estate, bringing together distant relatives and new acquaintances—characters beloved by Jane Austen fans. Definitely not invited is Mr. Wickham, whose latest financial scheme has netted him an even broader array of enemies. As tempers flare and secrets are revealed, it’s clear that everyone would be happier if Mr. Wickham got his comeuppance. Yet they’re all shocked when Wickham turns up murdered—except, of course, for the killer hidden in their midst.   

Nearly everyone at the house party is a suspect, so it falls to the party’s two youngest guests to solve the mystery: Juliet Tilney, the smart and resourceful daughter of Catherine and Henry, eager for adventure beyond Northanger Abbey; and Jonathan Darcy, the Darcys’ eldest son, whose adherence to propriety makes his father seem almost relaxed. 

In this tantalizing fusion of Austen and Christie, from New York Times bestselling author Claudia Gray, the unlikely pair must put aside their own poor first impressions and uncover the guilty party—before an innocent person is sentenced to hang.

Better than I could’ve hoped

Claudia Gray has never disappointed and she continues that trend with this book. Fantastic story with a mix of familiar and new characters. Does little to break away from the conventions of murder mysteries but that’s hardly a bad thing. Honestly the idea to create a whodunit with Jane Austen characters is ingenious and I can’t believe it hasn’t been done before.

Jane Austen Lives!

Author Claudia Gray has not only written an intriguing murder mystery, but has brought Jane Austen back to life. The phrasing, vocabulary, and attention to detail makes the reader feel she has happened upon a previously unknown Austen story. The amount and depth of research the author has done to be sure the book authentically comes across as one written in the Regency period pays off. The author’s skill and the narrator’s voice accurately capture Jane Austen and result in a delightful book.

I think Jane Austen would approve

Is there any higher compliment to a writer than to inspire other writers to pick up their mantle? Claudia Gray does a great job of carrying on in the Austen tradition and it was good to linger awhile in this reimagined world. I especially appreciated the tender attentions the author paid to the neuro-divergent aspects of Elizabeth and FitzWilliam’s son, Jonathan. Narrator Billie Fulford-Brown was perfect for the task of bringing the characters to life. I was excessively diverted by this book.

Good one to listen to after the Jane Austen novels

I listened to this after 3 Jane Austen novels. one difference I noted was that unlike the Jane Austen versions in audible where each character separate people's voices, this was all by a single person changing voices accordingly. Took a little getting used to in the beginning but enjoyed it very much.

Awesome!

This is the first Jane Austen spin off/sequel that I really enjoyed! In my opinion she did something with this novel I haven't seen any other sequels pull off: which was to really stay true to what Austen's heros where like in their original stories and realistically portray how they would have progressed and how they would have interacted! I haven't seen anyone else do better and that is coming from an Austen adaptation fanatic.

Very enjoyable

When I saw this book, I knew I had to listen to it now! The book starts off a little slow and just gets better. Some of my favorite Jane Austen characters all in the one book…. I love it!

A House Party for Jane Austen Characters

A fun exploration of many of the main characters of all of Jane Austin’s novels. The characters, plus a few of the next generation, gather for a house party at Donwell Abbey with hosts Mr and Emma Knightley. All does not go smoothly after a surprise visit from Mr Wickham. I enjoyed following the adventure and while IMO not all the characters were true to their original Austen portrayals, they were true to form throughout this novel. I recommend it highly.

Fun

A fun mystery take on the Jane Austen books.I enjoyed it and hope the author writes another mystery starring one of Austen's other characters.

Entertaining

Not life changing but definitely entertaining. Fan fiction at it's silliest and most entertaining. A lot of clever aspects though about how other aspects of society were dealt with in the regency era: Autism without a name, and homosexuality. I'd recommend Death Comes to Pemberely for fan fiction before this book.

Basically Just Jane Austen Fan Fiction

I don't read fan fiction of any sort so I can't judge The Murder of Mr. Wickham on that basis. I do read crime fiction and on that basis the mystery here is boring and mostly serves as a reason to bring many Austen characters together in one place. The ending is a disappointing cop-out. One bright spot is the narrator. Her voice is suited to a period piece like this.

Agatha Austen

A bestselling Star Wars fiction author writes a Christie/Austen mash up, it shouldn't work but it does. Gray throws in practically every Austen character you can think of and it's a delight to meet them all once more. If your a fan of Jane and can take the premise you are in for a treat. Not as worthy as Death Comes to Pemberley but far more entertaining in my opinion. I do hope there will be a sequel. Brilliant.

Justice

How I enjoyed this book. The plot was intriguing, characters like old friends and the language and style of the author did justice to the writings of Jane Austen. There was one familiar villain and many heroes in this compelling story. Now I want to read all Jane Austen’s novels again. Well done and more please!!

good light-hearted listen

To meet again Austen's characters in a Christy-esque house party murder mystery was a brilliant crossing of genres.
The narration was very well done.
However, an inconsistency in chapter numeration led to a small irritation. This is something quite common in audible books, where the introduction etc classed as Chapter 1 and the Chapter list is not amended. Hence I listened to a large chunk twice as I tried to find my place over several devices.

Awesome read

I loved this, Claudia Gray and Billie Fulford-Brown did a wonderful job. I'm always a bit worried when an author attempts to write like Jane Austen. But she really captures the language. It read like it could have been written by Jane. I hope Claudia will write more like this, maybe even attempt her unfinished novels.
Also would love if audible would get the rights to Defy the Stars trilogy by this author. Would be instant buys for me.

Great book

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It was well written and performed. Having a blending of all Jane Austen's books was fun and I loved John D'arcy's quirks.
