Love's Arrow Poisoned


I have always thought Darcy and Elizabeth would make a rather good detective team, given their talents and personalities. I have read one or two mystery stories based on P&P but wanted to do one where the mystery element was as important and developed as character etc. I must acknowledge my obvious debt to Dorothy L. Sayers, R. Austin Freeman and, most importantly, Thomas Lovell Beddoes, whose unfinished work provided me not only with the title, but from the fragmentary remains of which I obtained all of the chapter heading quotes for this story. For more information on Thomas Lovell Beddoes go here.
