Description

I have always enjoyed watching the BBC series Death in Paradise, particularly the early series with Ben Miller as DI Richard Poole so was quite thrilled when I received a review copy of A Meditation on Murder – the first novel by its creator Robert Thorogood. For all ebook purchases, you will be prompted to create an account or login with your existing HarperCollins username and password.

Enhance your enjoyment of the series as, for the first time, Robert Thorogood brings the characters to life on the page in an all-new locked-room mystery.Anyone else would be rejoicing about being able to work on this tropical island paradise, but not Richard.

Poole also parallels at the end of this passage that sense of personal challenge which Poirot experience more directly with the ABC letters he is sent.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. Wow our reading has seriously been in tune this year as I think we have read two books the same this year already.

It happens during a meditation in a paper room but the girl (fair Julie) who confessed to it couldn't have had done it.And in true fashion, I read it in the voices and mannerisms of each of the other Monore Police officers. Whenever the story slowed down, my brain had time to ruminate, and as a result, whodunnit became crystal clear to me rather early on. While at Cambridge, he toured with the university's student comedy troupe Footlights in 1993 and was elected President in 1994.

We do also get some great descriptions such as this: ‘he frowned like a barn owl who’d just received some bad news.I only read 30% of this book so I won't be leaving a star rating for it but I do actually want to say something about it. I suspect that the author has taken a screenplay and turned it into prose without realising that novelists have a different skill set from dramatists. 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. Another parallel with book 2 in the series is that we are initially presented with a seemingly open and shut case, yet because of various intriguing aspects and irregularities uncovered, we know it won’t be so simple as all that.
