"There are plenty of reasons to praise PBS's long-standing Mystery! series, and now lovers of whodunits can be thankful for Heat of the Sun." - Variety
A tangled web of blackmail, murder, passion, and more awaits former Scotland Yard detective Albert Tyburn (Trevor Eve, 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.
