""...a classic locked door mystery that reads like an Agatha Christie." "
Aslan Kennedy has an idyllic life: leader of a spiritual retreat for wealthy holidaymakers on one of the Caribbean's most unspoilt islands, Saint-Marie. Until he is murdered, that is.
The case seems open and shut: when Aslan was killed he was inside a locked room with only five other people, one of whom has already confessed to the murder.
Detective Inspector Richard Poole is hot, bothered and fed up with talking to witnesses who'd rather discuss his 'aura' than their whereabouts at the time of the murder. He also knows that the facts of the case don't quite stack up. In fact, he is convinced that the person who has just confessed to the murder is the one person who couldn't have done it. Determined to track down the real killer, DI Poole is soon on the trail and no stone will be left unturned.
