A Meditation on Murder

by Robert Thorogood

Snappy Review

This is a wonderful, light, and not always so breezey, series.

Book Synopsis

The first instalment of the Death in Paradise Mysteries, perfect for fans of Agatha Christie and Caroline Graham.
DI Richard Poole has been seconded from London to the beautiful Caribbean island of Saint Marie. More comfortable in woollen suits than short-sleeved shirts, he’s struggling to adapt to his new home. But this paradise is about to get deadly.

When self-appointed guru Aslan Kennedy gets murdered in his spiritual retreat for wealthy holidaymakers, it’s down to DI Poole to find the killer.

The murder took place in a locked room with five other people inside, and when someone confesses, it seems an open and shut case. But DI Poole knows the facts just don’t add up, and there is more to the mystery than meets the eye….

An exciting and enchanting crime thriller from the from the creator of the hit TV series, Death in Paradise.
