Publisher's Summary

Death in Paradise is one of BBC One’s most popular series, which averages nine million viewers.

DI Richard Poole is hot, bothered and fed up. He’s stuck on the tropical island of Saint-Marie, forced to live in a rickety old shack on a beach, and there isn’t a decent cup of tea to be found anywhere.

When a boat explodes in the harbour, Richard and his team soon realise there’s a new murderer on the loose. But who is it? And why did the killer leave behind a ruby at the scene of the crime?

As the police dig deeper, they uncover secrets that go back decades and a crime from the past that can never be forgiven.

Worse still, they soon realise this is only the beginning. They’ve got to catch the killer before there's another death in paradise.... 

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

The best yet.

I started listening to the ‘Death in Paradise’ books after being introduced to the characters in the tv show of the same name. I wasn’t totally enamoured with the plot lines of some of the previous books but this one was clever, realistic and despite the story line (multiple murders!), often amusing. I’m not sure that my review would have been the same if I had read the books first (as is my usual wont) but can say for definite that if I had read this book first, I would have been very interested in seeing the tv adaptation. I can’t say the same for some of the previous books.

Surprisingly entertaining.

A crime story which is so much more. you are transported to a Caribbean island with an upright English detective. who only has his special kind of logic to solve the murder .

Most Enjoyable Listen for a Long Time

A well constructed, excellently performed addition to my Audible library. The best 8 hours of escapism I've enjoyed for a long time. When will Book 5 be available?

An excellent listen

Phil Fox narration made the characters easy to distinguish in this very enjoyable story. Full of twists and turns and a well paced whodunnit.

Nice, easy listen

I found this book slow going at the start, I couldn't really see where it was going. However, by a few chapters in I was hooked. A really nice easy read, and very well read
