Kent Fisher Mystery #4
Kent Fisher gets more than he bargained for when Detective Inspector Ashley Goodman enlists his help with a ten year old murder. She’s on a mission and needs a big case to put her career back on track.
And they don’t come much bigger than Miles Birchill, Downland’s wealthiest and most divisive resident.
Not for the first time, Kent has doubts about the case, forcing him to make choices. But who do you trust when everyone has something to hide?
Caught in the middle, he has no alternative but to solve the murder, unaware that his every move is being watched.
The Kent Fisher novels offer a fresh and contemporary reworking of the classic whodunit and murder mysteries of authors like Agatha Christie.
About the Author :
Inspired by Miss Marple, Inspector Morse and Columbo, Robert Crouch wanted to write entertaining crime fiction the whole family could enjoy.
At their heart is Kent Fisher, an environmental health officer with more baggage than an airport carousel. Passionate about the environment, justice and fair play, he’s soon embroiled in murder.
Drawing on his experiences as an environmental health officer, Robert has created a new kind of detective who brings a unique and fresh twist to the traditional murder mystery. With complex plots, topical issues and a liberal dash of irreverent humour, the Kent Fisher mysteries offer an alternative to the standard police procedural.
Robert now writes full time and lives on the South Coast of England with his wife and their West Highland White Terrier, Harvey, who appears in the novels as Kent’s sidekick, Columbo.

‘No More Lies’ is for me the first book with Environmental Health Officer Kent Fisher as main character and although it’s book four in the series I really enjoyed it.
I think this mainly is because the book is full of humour and clever observations.
Moreover there’s Fisher, a not so typical sleuth, whom is very engaging and easy to like.
The other characters are also very realistic which makes them loveable or maybe not so much. 😉
Furthermore the plot was well developed and kept me entertained throughout.
I however had the feeling I missed out on some things, which I won’t and can’t hold against the writer as I knew this was book four already.
I’m just mentioning it so others won’t make this (rather small) mistake too and get the opportunity to thoroughly enjoy this series.
It definitely is recommendable if you like a good mystery with and ending that has you longing for another book instantly.
Let the waiting, which I hate, begin!
