Storyline

Former Scotland Yard detective Albert Tyburn is sent to colonial Nairobi, as the head of a new criminal investigation unit. Murder, arson, blackmail, slave-trading, and secret passions await him in 1930's Kenya. As he faces off against the pompous elitist expatriate community, he finds allies in Constable Jonah Karinde, Assistant Superintendent James Valentine, and Emma Fitzgerald, a spirited, strong-willed biplane pilot. This dark and twisting series encompass three cases: "Private Lives," "Hide in Plain Sight," and "The Sport of Kings." Written by L. Hamre

Terrific adventure and romance
3 May 2000 | by (northeast) – See all my reviews

This is a terrific series. You totally loose yourself in the times, location; the characters are all too real; you only want it to continue.

The acting has so much depth;one has to believe and hope there may be a sequel. I thought the story lines blended well together; the script was tight; if you left for a second, you missed key dialogue. Happy Valley was an "anything goes" society so characters like DeVille, Hans Dietrick Gessler (it was never implied that he was a Nazi), and Daphne's affair are hardly surprising. As for the insignia on the plane, British and Kenyan planes had different registration schemes; I don't know if this was accurately portrayed. All in all 10 stars.
