There’s a literary festival in Saint Marie, one of those thinly attended and slightly uncomfortable Death in Paradise-type gatherings. The author of a hugely significant book, a classic read by everyone on the island (apart from Dwayne), is the star attraction.

Inevitably, the fun is interrupted by the discovery of a body. A young literature student falls/jumps/is pushed from a cliff that’s central to the book’s torrid plot. Humphrey, eagerly awaiting the return of his girlfriend Martha, whistles as he sets to work on the case.

It’s not too long before everything falls into place and the suspects are gathered. How Humphrey (Kris Marshall) works out who did it is surely irrelevant; no one watches Death in Paradise for the plots.


The Saint Marie Literary Festival is rocked by the death of a young literature student - and Florence's childhood friend - whose body is discovered at the bottom of a cliff. Suicide seems the likely cause, but as ever Humphrey isn't so keen to jump to conclusions - even with the presence of a note in the victim's bag. But with everyone the dead girl knew at the festival, who could have pushed her over the edge? Away from the investigation, the inspector is busy preparing the shack for Martha's stay. Sun-soaked whodunit, guest starring Fiona Allen, Ramon Tikaram and Monica Dolan.
