Island of Sainte-Marie is a slice of heaven in the Caribbean Sea. At the villa of really rich family a body of British cop has been found. This is a complicated case and a detective from London was engaged to investigation. Richard Poole is a sort of bore person, and he does not like the sun, and he is not impressed with Sainte-Marie. Being on the island is a real challenge for him. He seems to be ridiculous in his buttoned-up jacket during the heat wave. But he is good at his job. And after a hard work the case is solved. So, Poole seems to leave this place, but he stays to investigate other interesting crimes.
