Storyline

A group of bird watchers are on the island to see its rare green parrots and one of them, Mark Talbot, is murdered with his hunting knife. Talbot was not a popular group member, another visitor Alec Burton threatening to kill him whilst his wife was having an affair with journalist Dan parish and is now a very wealthy widow. The most mystifying aspect of the case is the fact that the victim was only out of sight of the others for a few seconds before his corpse was found but Goodman works out the relevance of Talbot's walking cane and a single sock to solving the murder.

Trivia

The book that DI Humphrey Goodman is seen reading at the police station is 'Birds of the West Indies' (4th ed.) by James Bond. This was the author after whom Ian Fleming named his world famous spy (Fleming had a copy of the book at his home in Jamaica). See more »

Goofs

When Fidel first shows the body to the team, he says that the knife, still in the victim's back, has been wiped clean of prints. The lifting of fingerprints from a weapon is always done in a laboratory, not at the crime scene. Furthermore, it is clear that there is no fingerprint powder on the handle of the knife. See more »
