Impossible murders on a beautiful Caribbean island. DI Richard Poole is the perfect man to solve them – if only he didn’t just hate sun, sea and sand...

Sent to the tiny island of Saint-Marie to solve a mysterious murder Detective Inspector Richard Poole is a total fish out of water. A quintessentially British cop, he would much prefer the London drizzle and a freshly pressed shirt to blue seas, sparkling sands and gorgeous tropical weather.

What Richard finds is a ramshackle station and a very different type of policing. His new partner, feisty DS Camille Bordey is instinctive, wild, exotic and brilliant in her own way. Officer Dwayne Myers is a little too cosy with criminals for Richard’s liking, but he has his uses. And Fidel Best is honest as the day is long – at times frustrating, at times the key to an impenetrable mystery. Richard can get through his ordeal, if only he could find a decent cup of tea…

Though Richard would never admit it, they make the perfect team, and bring heart and humour to mind boggling murders in the most beautiful of settings, with a new mystery to solve every episode.
