Based on the BBC programme Death in Paradise.
Saint Marie is one of the most beautiful and seductive islands in the Caribbean, but even paradise has its problems...
This is the first time that the celebrated American art critic Jeremy Nono has ever been to Saint Marie. It will also be the last. Because yesterday morning he was found dead in a rented apartment, tied to a chair, strangled and with strange lettering painted on his body.
Now Detective Inspector Humphrey Goodman has assembled the suspects in the case, and you are one of those under suspicion. It's in your interest to find out the identity of the murderer - or murderers.
JEMIMA NONO - A wealthy American who was married to the murdered man. Her vast inheritance has allowed her to explore her interests beyond the family businesses, including a thriving art gallery.
BELLE LA CROIX - A best-selling author, who writes about the occult and new age thinking, she came to the island three years ago and stayed, marrying Richard La Croix.
LAURA LOVETT - A popular singer who is now hoping to break into the American market, under the patronage of Jemima Nono.
MARIA MARTIN - Until yesterday, she was employed as the secretary to Jeremy Nono. Now that he's dead, her future is uncertain.
RICHARD LA CROIX - One of the more colourful figures on the island, he has long had a reputation as a gambler and womaniser, though he insists that's all in the past.
TERENCE RUMPLE - A successful local solicitor, whose clients include Richard and Belle La Croix.
PERRY GRAYSTOKE - An English artist who was briefly - a few years back - the sensation of the season in New York. More recently, he has been living quietly on Saint Marie.
ROLY WINTERTON - A British journalist touring the Caribbean in pursuit of a story about tax evasion. Now he seems to have found a different story altogether.
