Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The author has written the scripts for a BBC TV series, Death in Paradise, but this is his first novel. The new TV series is to feature a new Detective Inspector but fans will enjoy returning to DI Richard Poole here. Set in Saint Marie, an unspoilt Caribbean island, it centres on the murder of a spiritual leader who was once a criminal but ‘saw the light’ while in prison and opened the retreat with his wife. Early on he is murdered and there are plenty who’d like to see him dead. This is a very light, comic, rather silly tale to just switch off and relax into.

A 'Piece of Passion' from the publisher...

'A compelling Agatha Christie-esque whodunit, this book is pure enjoyment. Curl up indoors, escape to the Caribbean and bask in the warmth radiating from the pages of this gripping locked-room mystery. Fans of the TV show Death in Paradise will immediately recognise the characters and setting, but whatever your feelings on the show I urge you to read this. It is, simply, a fantastic cosy mystery and I defy you not to be charmed!' - Sally Williamson, Commissioning Editor, MIRA

Synopsis

A Meditation on Murder by Robert Thorogood

Aslan Kennedy has an idyllic life: Leader of a Spiritual Retreat for wealthy holidaymakers on one of the Caribbean's most unspoilt islands, Saint Marie. Until he's murdered, that is. The case seems open and shut: when Aslan was killed he was inside a locked room with only five other people, one of whom has already confessed to the murder. Detective Inspector Richard Poole is hot, bothered, and fed up with talking to witnesses who'd rather discuss his 'aura' than their whereabouts at the time of the murder. But he also knows that the facts of the case don't quite stack up. In fact, he's convinced that the person who's just confessed to the murder is the one person who couldn't have done it. Determined to track down the real killer, DI Poole is soon on the trail, and no stone will be left unturned.
