A novel by

 
 
An original story from the creator and writer of the hit BBC One TV series Death in Paradise, featuring onscreen favourite DI Richard Poole.

Enhance your enjoyment of the series as, for the first time, Robert Thorogood brings the characters to life in an all-new locked-room mystery.

Aslan Kennedy has an idyllic life as 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 who 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-listen for fans of the TV series and Agatha Christie crime classics featuring Marple and Poirot.
