One thought on “Death Knocks Twice

  1. Dannii Elle

    A full review can be found at United by Pop.The tropical location gives this a different vibe from the usual, British penned, detective stories and, as such, has much to offer the reader that differs from the expected The way of life, as well as the inner workings of the police force, are drastically different and this gives an interesting and detailed insight into the contrasts between the two The British detective is the link between the two geographical settings, and it is his perceptions tha [...]

    4.5 Being a fan of the tv series, I couldn t wait to get my hands on this third instalment of Detective Inspector Richard Poole s adventures Once , Thorogood puts together a compelling murder mystery While investigating a possible stalking case, the team hears a couple of gunshots, only to find someone dead in a locked room , and what at first looked like a suicide is of course anything but.In these days of police procedurals using and advanced technologies, it is refreshing to have a crime st [...]

    I would like to thank Netgalley and HQ for an advance copy of Death Knocks Twice, the third novel based on the TV series Death In Paradise to feature DI Richard Poole, unwillingly seconded to the Saint Marie police.It s all quiet in the Saint Marie detective division when the commissioner asks them to investigate a man selling bootleg rum in case it affects the tourist trade They are distracted by Lucy Beaumont coming in to report a stalker on her family s remote coffee plantation When they get [...]

    As ever, reading a Death in Paradise novel is like being enveloped in a warm, comforting hug, but I was disappointed by the lack of development here while very much aware that lack of development is, for many, entirely the appeal of these cosily enjoyable books and the whole essence of the character of DI Richard Poole As the mystery of an unidentified man s murder unravels, a shift in Richard s attitude is teased through his consideration of a sartorial change there s also a tantalising moment [...]

  5. Cleo Bannister

    This is the third book in the Death in Paradise series which sees this somewhat buttoned up, yet brilliant detective solve murders on the island of Saint Marie This gorgeous Caribbean setting has an unsettling amount of murders all of which can only be solved using lateral thinking Yes the influence of Agatha Christie s style of mystery novels looms large and equally as devilish.This murder investigation is kicked off when a distressed young woman presents herself at the small police station abo [...]

  6. Austra

    Another great addition to Death in Paradise series And this time not even risk of overheating in Caribbean sun will stop DI Richard Poole from catching murderers and bootleggers Not just his colleagues but also the reader hopes that some day he will come to his senses and change his wool suits to tropical attire, not necessarily with pineapple print, but then again it wouldn t Richard Poole if he started wearing shorts and some silly hawaiian print shirts, right

    Two dead bodies.A family of suspects.One grumpy detective.Robert Thorogood is back with the latest Death in Paradise Mystery, seeing the return of DI Richard Poole.Death Knocks Twice is a murder mystery set among the islands of the Caribbean and is just published by HQ Stories Harper Collins imprint ,My Review Detective Inspector Richard Poole is a wonderful character The visual of this hot, sweltering, cranky, yet endearing Englishman, trussed up in a suit, is portrayed with such clarity.DI Poo [...]

  8. Dan

    This is the third book based on the Death in Paradise TV series Like the previous two it is an all new story and features the original cast of the show, Richard Poole played by Ben Miller on screen and his team, Camille, Dwayne and Fidel The team investigate a report that someone has been hanging around the Beaumont plantation, home of the wealthy British Beaumont family who made their money by exploiting the slave trade Whilst they are there a gunshot rings out and they soon find a body in the [...]

    I love the TV show that these books are based on Yes, it was that way round the books came after the series This is the third in the series and, as anyone who is familiar with the character of Richard Poole knows, he is a bit of a complex character so it is best to read the first two books first to fully appreciate the character development and quirks So we have the death of an unknown man, found in a building on the estate of a historic coffee plantation Add into the mix a murder weapon with on [...]

    I m a big fan of the TV series and also this book series so i couldn t wait to get my hands on this book thank you Netgalley for letting me have a copy to review.Just for context we are following the original detective Richard Poole and his assistant Camille so you know right away that we re going to be following a very grumpy detective In this story the team are investigating the murder of an apparently homeless man on the coffee plantation run by the Beaumont family No one seems to know who th [...]

  12. Jo Barton

    Set on the idyllic Caribbean island of Saint Marie, DI Richard Poole and his motley crew of detectives find that an investigation into the mysterious death of a stranger, who no one seems to be able to identify, leaves them with questions than it does answers I think that what makes these books so joyous to read is that the characters come alive with all their little quirks and foibles They constantly make me smile, particularly Richard s aversion to dress comfortably in the stifling Caribbean [...]

  13. Mistimoo_bookreview

    Opening the very first page, I was instantly swept straight to Saint Marie The heat of the Caribbean and the humour of DI Poole s typical Englishness emanates from the page Despite his unorthodox ways, you can t not love Richard Poole All of the characters are well developed and their individual characteristics shine through.I don t think it s necessary to read the earlier books to be able to understand Death Knocks Twice However both the previous books and the TV series are first class and I de [...]

  14. Christine Blachford

    I whipped through this book in super quick time, it seemed to flow much easier than the previous two There was a lot less repetition, and I liked how the two seemingly unrelated crimes ended up crossing over each other towards the end.The murder mystery was good, I guessed a few names but got it wrong each time, and like all good stories, the answer was obvious when it was revealed to you It s not a happy story, but as with the TV series, the real joy comes from the team of misfits investigating [...]

  15. Sara Eames

    This book is a must for fans of the Death in Paradise series it is the 3rd one I ve read, and each one gets better As the author is the creator of D in P, he really captures the characters within the pages I could hear the relevant actors voices speaking as I read the book The characters are all well written and the plot moves at a cracking pace All in all, a very good read Highly recommended.

  16. BJ Hal

    Once again, just like in the previous two books when I read this book I could just hear the voices of the actors in the tv series saying the words If like me you are a fan of the Richard Poole shows this book is for you.

  17. Sophie

    An enjoyable, easy read straight from the early days of Death in Paradise Makes me miss the old cast I did like this, but found the big reveal a bit stomach churning.

  18. Andrew Hixson

    Disappoining Chapters too long so by the time you got to the end of each one, you didn t care about the cliffhanger Solution too obvious.

  19. Puzzle Doctor

    Another outstanding return to Saint Marie and Richard Poole Full review at classicmystery.wordpress

    I laughed out loud on the train at the iguana part having just returned from holiday on a small Caribbean island it made me quite nostalgic
