LoveReading View on A Meditation on Murder

The author has written the scripts for a BBC TV series, Death in Paradise, but this is his first novel. The TV series featured 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. ~ Sarah Broadhurst

A Meditation on Murder Synopsis

An original story from the creator and writer of the hit BBC One TV series, Death in Paradise, featuring on-screen favourite detective, DI Richard Poole. Enhance your enjoyment of the series as, for the first time, Robert Thorogood brings the characters to life on the page in an all-new locked-room mystery. 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. A must read for fans of the TV series and Agatha Christie crime classics featuring Marple and Poirot. Praise for Death in Paradise 'Fans of the series will relish...plenty of red herrings and twists to keep readers guessing until the Agatha Christie style showdown' - Daily Express 'Thorogood's classic crime novel is laced with tongue-in-cheek humour and outlandish plot twists.
