Light-Hearted Murder Mystery
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 Miller but had never read any of the books before. Oh how I have been missing out. The book had the same atmosphere as the series – a camaraderie between the lead characters which sees them bouncing dialogue backwards and forwards. There is a lightness of spirit in spite of it being a murder mystery. And then there is the warm, easy going nature of the Caribbean which contrasts with the stiff upper lip of the English detective.
