Nick Slaughter, an ex-RCMP and DEA agent, who had dropped out of society after being fired from his job, relocates to the Florida town of Key Mariah to start a detective service. In the process he meets Sylvie Gerard, a local travel agent. Together they form a strong partnership and quite the detective team. However, the local police squad never made it easy so they often require help from their friends: Ian, Spider (owners of the Tropical Heat Bar at different times) and Rollie (local police mortician). The Town of Key Mariah will never be the same again thanks to Nick Slaughter and company. Written by Janet Worth <worthy@planeteer.com>

Did You Know?


In Serbia, the series enjoys a cult status to this day. The main reasons behind this are the UN sanctions against Serbia in the early 1990s (which prevented the airing of major films and TV shows) and the show's setting in tropical abundance (which highly contrasted the everyday poverty in Serbia at the time). In fact, the show was originally aired under the title "Detektiv u raju", meaning "A Detective in Paradise". See more »

may divorce be with you.
19 July 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

i used to watch tropical heat when i lived in south Africa. loved it! i was actually looking to buy the 3 series because i was lucky enough to be in an episode. its the episode mentioned by another user with the main man jumping ablaze from a roof into a swimming pool where a woman was swimming, (me, Tina). that was filmed in Johannesburg s.a. around Sept/Oct 92.i don't know if they filmed the whole series there, but i know they were in S.A. for a while.seems like a lifetime ago for me. Rob was really nice. very professional & helpful as i was extremely nervous, but i loved every minute of it. it was the episode "may divorce be with you"
