The Murder of Mr. Wickham

Claudia Gray is the pseudonym of Amy Vincent. New York Times bestselling author Gray has penned multiple novels, including the young adult Evernight series, Firebird trilogy, and Constellation trilogy. In addition, she has written several Star Wars novels, such as Lost Stars and Bloodline. She makes her home in New Orleans with her husband and assorted small dogs.  

In The Murder of Mr. Wickham, 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. Nearly everyone at the 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 Jane Austen and Agatha Christie, the unlikely pair must put aside their own poor first impressions and uncover the guilty party—before an innocent person is sentenced to hang.
