      I believe I enjoyed River of Darkness more comprehensively due to watching Midsomer Murders on Netflix. It is a British television detective drama series (Present) set within small English country villages. The crime drama series is based on Caroline Graham's Chief Inspector Barnaby book series, as originally adapted for television by Anthony Horowitz/5(36). The Congo River serves as a major setting for the book's narrative. The novel's narrator Marlow spends months navigating up the river in search of Kurtz, an ivory trader who has gone missing deep in the heart of Africa. The river is also a metaphor for Marlow's internal, emotional journey to find the elusive Kurtz.
