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

Killed by a machete this time. It's been a while since anyone was murdered with a spear gun.
