Bookmark Festival: An Austentatious Murder

AustentatiousIt is a truth universally acknowledged that a man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.”

Acknowledging Jane Austen as one of mankind’s most gifted writers on the subject of love and the human condition, tech developers have created the ‘Austen Algorithm’ - the key to finding the perfect partner! The new app Dating Mr Darcy is due to be launched at an Austen themed gala celebration. But moments before the app goes live, its creator is found dead - Someone has quite literally broken her heart!
