    (3.5) The key to maximum enjoyment of Robert Thorogood's Death in Paradise novels, I've discovered, is to read them in a hot climate. It's much easier to imagine yourself into DI Richard Poole's shoes ? broiling in his wool suit under the scorching Saint-Marie sun ? when you're bak...

    A 20 year old heist gone wrong comes back to haunt the idyllic Saint-Marie as a gang of jewel thieves are murdered one by one, seemingly by the only member ever to be caught. Lots of red herrings thrown in but the real killer was fairly obvious, and reading the 'original cast' books o...

    I felt the writing style left a lot to be desired however the plot itself was good and I couldn't guess who it was. As a fan of the show I think I'll stick to the TV in the future. If you're off on a beach holiday then I would recommend popping this in your suitcase, entertaining a...

    It is always a pleasure to return to this series, although the author made us wait quite a bit for this new instalment! Nevertheless, here we have another compelling murder mystery that seems rather straightforward but of course isn?t :0) I just love Detective Inspector Richard Po...

    The fourth in the series of whodunnits based on the characters from the Death In Paradise television series, based on the fictional Island of Saint Marie. By the same author, these are completely fresh stories, and they have the same four police officers, led by Inspector Richard Poole...

    I like the TV series but haven't seen many so thought I would try the book. Richard Poole is a typical stuffy repressed man stuck on the cars bean island of Saint Marie. An explosion in the harbour kills a man and unearths a 20 year old crime. But as more bodies arrive it soon gets com...

    3.5 stars. Always a good entertainer, this series, but without the fun twists or jumbled alibis whatsoever this time - quite predictable at the end especially with the killer?s POV being mentioned a few times. All is solved and revealed at the very last chapter. ...

    I received a paperback copy of this novel as part of the blog tour for publication day 27th December 2018, in return for an honest review. I enjoy the TV series, and was looking forward to reading this novel. It didn't disappoint at all. As with the programme, the plot keeps the rea...

    Rating between 3.5 & 4 A nice return to the original team of death in paradise. This was an good story, that had a murder mystery which has been seen before but still had some nice wrinkles to it. Richard Poole seemed even more obtuse in this story as regards other people?s f...

    Murder In The Caribbean by Robert Thorogood is a marvellous, light hearted, gripping, contemporary murder mystery. It is the fourth book in the Death In Paradise series but can be read as a stand-alone. I have watched many episodes of the BBC?s Death In Paradise series with Ben Mill...

    A perfect book if, like me, you're a big fan of the TV series, Death in Paradise. This is a story from the original series, and it's great fun meeting all our favourite characters again. Plus the crimes are as devious as ever. The only niggle I had with it is that Richard Poole certain...

    Killer maybe too easy to guess. One annouying thing... everyone seems to say "that's right" and "what's that". Really primitive writing, could have been done better. ...

    Brilliant! I enjoy the books enormously and the author is so good that I had no idea who had committed the murders, loads of red herrings and a quintessential English police officer who insists in the raging heat of the Caribbean in wearing a suit and tie and then complains that he is ...

    Andy's review Downloaded this as I have the other three Death In Paradise novels, read them & enjoyed them all, & I think that this is the best one yet, although (for once!) I actually guessed who the killer was. I just hope there's more in the series to come. ...

    If you like cozy mysteries, then Robert Thorogood is the writer for you. I'm sure others have said this, but Thorogood reminds me of a modern day Agatha Christie. He uses the original detective from the "Death in Paradise" TV series as his protagonist. This is a smart choice because Ri...
