‘Death in Paradise’ returns with more island mysteries

“Death in Paradise” returns with a new season of island mysteries on Saturdays at 8 p.m.

Detective Inspector Jack Mooney is settling into the sun-soaked idyll of Saint Marie, and beginning to make the shack on the beach his home. But when his daughter decides to leave for university, he finds himself living alone for the first time.

Luckily, he has his team to support him as he faces some fiendishly taxing cases. Jack’s laconic style belies a sharp mind and relentless determination. He’s a brilliant detective, and he’ll need all his instinctive genius to solve these mysterious murders.

A champion poker player, apparently poisoned at the table in front of an astonished audience. A novelist, murdered in a plot more surprising than anything he’s ever written. And a spiritual leader, strangled at a time when all the suspects were each others’ alibis. These are impossible mysteries, but Jack needs to unpick them if he’s to impress the commissioner and make his mark on the island.

And it’s not just Jack who has challenges to face, as injury strikes DS Florence Cassel; JP confronts a face from his past; Commissioner Selwyn is forced to reopen a case that’s close to home; and Dwayne finds himself out of his depth – and in love.
