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

worth seeing
1 July 2002 | by (tampa,florida) – See all my reviews

I have seen this mini-series 3 times and each time I enjoy it. Yes, there are a few technical oddities, but, by and large the movie was well acted out by all involved. I believe Trevor Eve played his part quite convincingly. I hope they come out with another mini-series with the same main characters.
