Lisa Moore is murdered with a spear-gun minutes after her beach wedding,in a room for which she had no key. Aided by new sergeant Camille Poole suspects Lisa was having an affair,either with best man Adam or the hunky diving-instructor Stefan,whose prints are the only ones on the murder weapon. Then it is announced that Lisa was an heiress,due to inherit a large legacy on getting married. So was the motive greed or a crime of passion?

However, in this episode we see the Police land rover has the French licence plates you would expect to see in Guadeloupe, where the series is filmed. See more »

Decent Cuppa
20 October 2019 | by ygwerin1See all my reviews

D.I. Richard Poole is like me typically British in the eternal quest for a decent cup of tea, like Arthur Dent in Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. Something that any British person certainly of my advance years can understand and relate to, though of course any other nationality would find it rather daft. I also have a notoriously plain taste in food something I am finding really hard on holiday, trying to find any food that I am happy to consume. I would certainly find it impossible to cope with, exotic especially spicy foods common to the Caribbean. It is exceptionally fortunate for him that he has the perfect restaurant to hand with the most charming and wonderful hostess Catherine, and the most idyllic beachside location.
