Patricia Wildman, the daughter of the world-renowned adventurer and crimefighter of the 1930s and '40s, Dr. James Clarke "Doc" Wildman, is all alone in the world when she inherits the family estate in Derbyshire, England-in true Gothic tradition, old, dark, and supposedly haunted.
But is the ghost real, or a clever sham perpetrated by others to scare her off? As Patricia contends with the questionable motives of her distant relatives, attempts to discern friend from foe, and battles to overcome mysterious attackers, she struggles to reconcile the supernatural with her rational scientific upbringing, while also attempting to work through unresolved feelings about her late parents.
Set at Pemberley from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice and deeply ingrained in worlds of Sherlock Holmes and Lord Greystoke-as well as the bronze champion of justice, Doc Wildman-The Evil in Pemberley House is a darkly erotic novel with broad appeal to readers of pulp and popular literature, and fans of Philip José Farmer's own celebrated Wold Newton Family.
