Camille Bordey

Camille was an assured, no-nonsense cop, eternally baffled and intrigued by the curious British detectives the Met kept sending to the island.

Raised by her French mother in Saint Marie, she was intelligent, quick-witted and independent. Camille trained in Paris, where she excelled and was swiftly drafted into undercover work. She’s a natural chameleon, confident in any setting, and an instinctive detective. She has a wicked sense of humour and follows her intuition rather than procedure.

With eccentric and occasionally frustrating DI Humphrey Goodman heading up the Saint Marie police team, Camille continually found herself not only wrangling his disorganised approach to detection, but his chaotic personal life as well. That said, Humphrey also become a very good friend to Camille - though she remained entirely oblivious to the fact that his feelings extended a little beyond friendship.

She left Saint Marie to return to Paris and work undercover.
