Heat of the Sun Sizzles

by Carol Courtney on 4/18/2008

I admit it...I'm biased. I LOVE British-made mysteries and this one is very good. Set in an "Out of Africa" locale with the same ambience, it hits much harder with the plot lines and bigotry of the time but the humanity Trevor Eve's character shows is inspiring. He's a man who has crossed a line in his duties as a cop in England and is relegated to an African post as his last chance. We can't help but root for him and the friends and comrades he makes in Africa. There is mystery and romance and HEAT! I'm delighted to have found it in DVD.

Product Overview

A tangled web of blackmail, murder, passion, and more awaits former Scotland Yard detective Albert Tyburn (Trevor Eve from The Politician's Wife) when he arrives in Nairobi. He has been sent to head up a new criminal investigation unit under the command of pompous local police commissioner Ronald Burkitt (Michael Byrne). In these three mysteries: Private Lives, Hide in Plain Sight and The Sport of Kings, Tyburn uses his cunning, courage and headstrong policing style to battle arson, drug-dealing, murder and the creeping colonialism of Kenya's hedonistic expatriate community.
