Review

Junior cop JP’s wedding day is fast approaching. So Humphrey has had a suit specially made and – all credit to the costume department – it’s a magnificently daft piece of tailoring. But then, Humphrey exists mainly to make a berk of himself in all contexts, being the Caribbean’s most floundering twit in every respect apart from one: his sudden, flawless insights into how crimes were committed.

There’s a new development when he bumps into an old friend from England called Martha (Sally Bretton), with whom he has a stumblingly flirtatious conversation while Florence looks on amused. It might just be the start of something.

More pressingly, there’s another locked-room mystery to solve as a backpacker is found shot dead, slumped against the door of a hostel shower room. “You might have got away with it,” Humphrey informs the murderer, “But for one mistake…”

Summary

A student backpacker is found dead in the showers of her hostel, and with a gun in her hand and her body slumped against the only door, all evidence points toward suicide. Humphrey isn't so sure, however, especially when he notices all her toiletries laid out and her towel missing. But when the team question the victim's boyfriend and her fellow backpackers, they find themselves with very little to go on. Meanwhile, JP prepares for the biggest day of his life as his wedding day approaches, and when Humphrey bumps into an old lady friend, Florence encourages her boss to pursue his quest for love.
