Prisoner Leon Hamilton is being escorted by ferry to Sainte Marie when he is stabbed to death, an embarrassment to Poole, who was hand-cuffed to him at the time. Hamilton was convicted of a holiday home scam and two of the passengers on the ferry, whodunnit fan and grand-daughter of investors, Suzie Park, and thuggish Sam King, an associate of another victim Gordon Foster, whose wife left him after his ruination, would seem to be likely suspects - until Poole uncovers a cunning identity swap.

Camille takes a call that Leon Hamilton's wife is flying in from Guadeloupe to formally identify the body, which has already gone through autopsy, but in the very first episode it is explained to DI Poole that bodies (and evidence) would be shipped from Honore to Basse-Terre in Guadeloupe, which has bigger forensic facilities.

So we got a man murdered in broad daylight while handcuffed to a police officer, just over a thousand suspects, and it's a hundred degrees... Marvellous!
