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 »

Awesome!
16 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

This show was extremely entertaining. I would highly recommend it. I remember in the early 90's watching this show on CBS crime time after prime time at 11:35pm. Right after the CBS news. The scenery and the music puts you in the mood and makes you feel like you're there. I never understood why they stopped filming this show. I wanted to visit Key Mariah myself and have a drink at the Tropical Heat bar. I bought season 1 on DVD. I only hope Tango entertainment puts the rest of the episodes on DVD. Even better.. wouldn't it be great if they brought back the show today? I hope you read this Sam Egan(creator),Rob Stewart(Nick Slaughter)!! Thumbs up!!
