Storyline

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>

Trivia

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 »

Not bad at all - brings a smile to my face
2 March 1999 | by (Nova Scotia, Canada) – See all my reviews

As a male Canadian, I have to be blunt and say the best thing about this show was the combination of tropical scenery and very good looking female actresses. To me, it has a kind of B grade feel to it, but never goes into complete and utter mediocrity. The acting is okay, for its genre. The main actor, Rob Stewart (aka "Nick Slaughter") plays a hard-core detective with a chip on his shoulder and always has his eye open for a cute female customer (although distrustful of women). Dunn (aka Sylvie) plays the stereotypical smart secretary who attempts to keep Nick Slaughter from going over the line and losing the business. You'd think there would be a type of sexual tension, but only in a few episodes I've seen were there hints of innuendo between Nick and Sylvie. Overall, I really did enjoy this TV show when it ran. I was very disappointed when they cancelled it (although not surprised, because of its sheer amount of unoriginal detective-show bunk). As I said before, the photography of the tropical and beach scenes are quite good, and almost make you feel like 'you're there'. Just on this aspect alone, you should at least try to see this show once for yourself - it cheers you up if you 'got the winter blues'. If you get a chance, see the first episode for the humourous entrance of Sylvie into Nick's life as a secretary. I remember lizards being quite a focus. :) I really liked it when they showed it in Canada back from 1990-1993 (on CITV, Edmonton), when I was a teen-ager.

On a final note, I also thought it was interesting that Dunn was born in Cape Breton island, Nova Scotia, Canada, which is only 15 minutes away from where I was born. There was a write-up on her in a local TV guide some years ago (which I have saved somewhere).
