Prisoner Leon Hamilton is being escorted by ferry to Sainte Marie when he is stabbed to death, an embarrassment to Poole, who was hand-cuffed to him at the time. Hamilton was convicted of a holiday home scam and two of the passengers on the ferry, whodunnit fan and grand-daughter of investors, Suzie Park, and thuggish Sam King, an associate of another victim Gordon Foster, whose wife left him after his ruination, would seem to be likely suspects - until Poole uncovers a cunning identity swap.

Camille Bordey: Are you okay?
DI Richard Poole: [sitting back in his chair] The commissioner and I had a frank exchange of views. And it was decided I hadn't exactly covered myself in glory as far as the prisoner's transfer was concerned.
