DI Poole and DS Camille Borday investigate the murder of plantation owner Roger Seymour who is found in his one-time sugar mill. The Seymours were major employers at one time but they had a reputation for not treating their workers very well. Now, Seymour was looking to turn his mill into a museum. He had recently divorced his wife Nicole and both she and their nephew, Alex Seymour, object to his relationship with the pretty young Kim Neville. All of them were within sight of one another when the killing took place, but Poole's discovery of an underground tunnel and a link to events long ago lead him to the killer. Meanwhile, Camille's mother is still trying to find her a man and sets her up on another blind date. Written by garykmcd

A great episode
16 August 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

I have to be honest I look at this time in Death in Paradise's history as one of its best spells. After a successful first series, everyone has settled brilliantly into their roles, and the writing just got better and better.

The fact that they were able to attract Stephanie Beacham, James Cosmo and Tom Ward is no accident, over 8 million tuned in to watch it.

I really like the story, as light as it is in parts, it's very well balanced with a much darker side, the topic of slavery in the Carribbean.

Exciting, dramatic and clever, a classic episode. 9/10
