Summary
Shepherd puts a new twist on Austen's work. When Fanny Price is brutally killed on the grounds of Mansfield Park, Mary Crawford teams up with a thief-taker from London, to deal with romance, intrigue, and crimes of the heart
Summary
Formerly Austen's meekest heroine, Fanny Price has become not only an heiress to an extensive fortune but also a heartless, scheming minx. Hiding her true character behind a demure facade, Fanny is indeed betrothed to Edmund, now Mrs Norris's stepson; but do the couple really love each other? Henry and Mary Crawford arrive in the country ready to wreak havoc with their fast city ways. Meanwhile, tragedy strikes the safe and solid grand house as it becomes the scene of violence. Every member of the family falls under suspicion and the race begins to halt a ruthless murderer.
