Book Blurb

How can a simple job interview end in complete carnage?

When Mandy Paige seeks Kent Fisher’s help to find the mother who abandoned her as a baby, he has no idea of the mayhem his investigation will unleash. With only a photograph of a woman he once knew, he discovers she left her office one Friday afternoon twenty years ago and never returned.

Did Helen Cassidy escape an abusive husband or was she abducted and murdered?

People connected to Helen begin to die in mysterious circumstances. An old foe returns, leaving cryptic messages on the windscreen of Kent’s car. He seems to know Kent’s every move, hounding and taunting the sleuth, attacking those who can help him solve the mystery.

When the main suspect dies, Kent’s investigation lies in tatters – until he realises he’s not the one pursuing the killer. The killer’s pursuing him.

Guest Post by Robert Crouch ~ @robertcrouchuk

It’s a lovely sunny Saturday morning, made even better by Robert Crouch who has come to pay a visit to my blog to tell me all about the joys of writing a series.  I have really enjoyed the Kent Fisher Mysteries series so far and will soon be reading Robert’s latest book, ‘No Mercy’.

Over to Rob now.

 

The joys of writing a series

When I began I had no idea if I could write one novel, let alone a series.

I’d never written a murder mystery before.

Plot seemed the logical place to start. A whodunit where the reader had to work out the killer required a clever plot, full of twists and red herrings.

It also required a detective to solve the mystery. Miss Marple, Inspector Morse, Kinsey Millhone all sprang to mind. Did I want a detective inspector or a private eye? Each brought its own challenges.

How would my detective stand out from the myriad of fictional and TV detectives? The choices were limitless, it seemed. Male or female? Young or old? Loner or team player? Maverick or by the book?

Then I considered flaws. Every detective had to have one, maybe more. Drinking, gambling, infidelity and broken marriages were common flaws that made detectives more human and sympathetic.

How about personal traumas? This was an emerging trait to make readers care more for detectives and lead characters. There were wives or children who disappeared, siblings who were killed or committed suicide, colleagues who died, detectives with addictions or mental health problems.

It soon became apparent that creating characters was more challenging and interesting than developing a twisting plot. And as no character lives or works alone, a strong supporting cast was essential – more so if you wrote about private eyes, who usually worked alone.

It took me several years for my protagonist Kent Fisher to ‘leap off the page’ as one agent demanded. I didn’t make things easy by shunning both private eye and detective inspector in favour of an amateur sleuth.

I wanted someone for today’s world – a person who cared as much about the environment and animals as he did about justice and fair play. He cared about his health, eating sensibly, exercising regularly.

Not very rock and roll, you might say, but this guy was also a hunt saboteur. He chained himself to trees to stop developers destroying the countryside. Though not a policeman, he was still a law enforcement officer – an environmental health officer (EHO), like me. He preferred animals to people and only had to get up in the morning to attract trouble.

As EHOs don’t investigate murders, he had to be drawn in by accident – literally in the case of his first outing.

This allowed me to give readers an insight into environmental health and the world he occupied. The characters around him took shape – like Danni, the fast track boss who felt threatened by him. Her PA, Kelly, was the font of all knowledge and gossip, delivering some of the funniest lines I wrote. His assistant Gemma helped him solve the murder and provided an unrequited love interest.

To make up for not having a police team to help him solve murders, his best friend Mike was once a Scenes of Crime Officer.

With the exception of Gemma, they were minor players in No Accident, the first Kent Fisher mystery. It was his show. Yet readers and reviewers were as interested in the characters as the plot. Some liked Gemma and wanted her and Kent to get together. Others thought she was bad for Kent and urged him to stop dreaming about her.

Then there was Columbo, the West Highland white terrier rescued by Kent. Readers loved this little guy, who seemed to steal most of the scenes he was in. Come the follow up, No Bodies, Columbo even had a hand in capturing the killer.

The story followed the original template, except Kent’s animal sanctuary and family issues grew in importance. We saw more of the world he lived in. Gemma played the same role once more, but with more authority and confidence, prompting readers and reviewers to be more vocal about their relationship.

The third novel, No Remorse, showed another part of environmental health, developing new characters. Danni was still there, struggling to manage Kent, but their relationship was developing and changing as more was revealed about their pasts. Kent had a new love interest to challenge his feelings for Gemma and vice versa.

Suddenly, as I began to think about each new murder mystery, the characters, work and animal sanctuary dominated my thoughts and planning. There were stories, running threads and unresolved issues to consider and continue.

By now readers and reviewers seemed to enjoy the backstory and characters as much as the murder mysteries. Kent, who had started out as the kind of maverick EHO I could never be, developed as a character, revealing the defining insights from his past.

With each novel, he becomes less like me and more his own person.

The same could be said of the characters, who develop with each story. The relationships change and shift as characters face new challenges. New characters have joined the cast, such as Detective Inspector Ashley Goodman, who investigates as a police officer, adding a new dimension and conflict.

But as the first draft of Kent Fisher #6 is completed, the backstory continues to produce subplots, challenges and emotional conflict that keep the stories fresh and moving forward, while remaining loyal to the classic whodunit.

Work continues to get in Kent’s way, but reflects the challenging times of public spending cuts and underfunded services. His relationship with Gemma has more twists and turns than many of the murder plots. Columbo continues to enchant readers and steal every scene he’s in. The animal sanctuary continues to grow and develop.

When I started, I envisaged one, maybe two novels. Never in my wildest dreams, did I think the characters would grow and develop to add a second layer of interest to make my stories as well as my protagonist distinctive.

Thanks to the series, I’ve grown to love the characters. I care deeply about what happens to them. They are like a family to me and matter as much as the complex murder plots I create.

Without these guys, there would not be a series.

 

 

‘No Accident’ the first book in the Kent Fisher Mystery series is currently only £1.99 on Amazon.  Here is the blurb.

 

Book Blurb

A former gangster is dead. It looks like an accident. Only Kent Fisher suspects murder.

When the police decide Syd Collins’ death is a work accident, they hand over the investigation to environmental health officer, Kent Fisher, a man with more baggage than an airport carousel.

He defies a restraining order to enter Tombstone Adventure Park and confronts the owner, Miles Birchill, who has his own reasons for blocking the investigation. Thwarted at every turn, Kent’s forced to bend the rules and is soon suspended from duty.

He battles on, unearthing secrets and corruption that could destroy those he loves. With his personal and professional worlds on a collision course, he knows life will never be the same again.

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.

Blog Tour – ‘No More Lies’ by Robert Crouch ~ #BitsaboutBooksBlogTour @CarolineBookBit @robertcrouchuk

I am thrilled to be kicking off the blog tour for ‘No More Lies’ along with Donna’s Book Blog.  This is the fourth book in the Kent Fisher series and it is out today in paperback and as an eBook.  I would like to thank Caroline at Bits about Books for inviting me to participate in this tour.  Thanks must go also to both Robert Crouch and Caroline for my review copy.

I will tell you soon what I thought about ‘No More Lies’  First though, the blurb.

 

Book Blurb

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.

 

My Review

I have enjoyed this series from the very start. It really does feel like I have waited ages, at least ten years, for ‘No More Lies’ to be published. I absolutely love Robert Crouch’s style of writing. He has mentioned previous murder cases Kent has solved and details about his personal life in this book so that it can be read as a standalone. Personally though I would say to read the series from the very start if you can, simply because it’s so good.

Kent Fisher really does tick all my boxes. He still has his animal sanctuary and would concentrate on it full-time if he could. That makes him a very caring and loving man, looking after animals. I love his sense of humour and I also think he makes a great sleuth. Nothing gets past him, oh no!

I found this case intriguing and was trying to fit all the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle together. A murder from ten years ago wasn’t going to be easy to solve. That didn’t stop Kent though. He was put under so much pressure by DI Ashley Goodman and time was ticking fast.

I wasn’t keen on DI Goodman at all. There was just something about her. I didn’t like how she treated Kent. It felt like she was using him for her own selfish reasons in order to further her career. Admittedly she did have good reason to suspect who she did though. I really liked Freya and was so happy for Kent.

I loved the cliffhanger at the end of the story and I am so very excited that there is a fifth book coming out. I hope I don’t have to wait another ten years though! Well, okay, I know it’s not quite that long. Somehow I don’t think I could ever tire of this series.

Robert Crouch has done it again.

Blog Tour – ‘No Remorse’ by Robert Crouch

‘No Remorse’ was published in paperback and as an eBook on the 7th May 2018.  I have followed this series from the beginning and having participated in the cover reveal for this book, I am absolutely thrilled to be taking part in this blog tour.  I would like to thank Caroline Vincent of Bits about Books for inviting me to take part and both Caroline and Robert Crouch for my review copy.

Before you find out what I thought about this book, here’s a reminder of what it’s about.

 

Book Blurb

Old sins cast long shadows.

An old man dead. Dementia or murder? Threats won’t stop Kent Fisher from finding out.

At luxury retirement home, Nightingales, appearance matters more than the truth. But what is the truth? Was Anthony Trimble killed as he predicted? If so, who wanted him out of the way, and why?

Kent puzzles over the only clue Trimble left him. Are the numbers a mysterious code that could reveal his dark secret, or items on a takeaway menu?

Kent has to dig deep. Then people start dying.

Will Kent win the race to discover the truth, or become the next victim?

With shades of Agatha Christie and Sue Grafton, No Remorse brings a refreshing twist to the traditional murder mystery.

 

My Review

I have been thoroughly enjoying this series so far. I really think Robert Crouch has his work cut out in making sure his books remain fresh and interesting, a hard thing to achieve. Having now read ‘No Remorse’ I would say he’s doing a great job. I can just picture him writing many more books in the Kent Fisher Mystery series and in years to come having at least twenty books to his name. Here’s hoping anyway.

This was a really interesting and quite shocking case. A resident dies in the residential home he’s living in. Sure that happens, but there was something rather fishy about it all. I just knew Kent Fisher would work out what it was. I was intrigued by the message Mr Trimble left for him. I really wouldn’t have minded trying to decode it myself, but as I discovered that would have been impossible.

Even though Kent Fisher was receiving threats he didn’t give up on the case, instead ploughing on. That’s what makes him good at what he does. He obviously enjoys his job as an Environmental Health Officer even with the recent changes, but I can’t help thinking that it would be great if he went full-time as a private investigator. He would be ace at it. Who knows what may happen next.

I never tire reading about Kent’s animal sanctuary and I can’t wait to find out what happens with it in the future. I also really adore Columbo the dog.

This book can be read as a standalone novel as the reader is given an insight into what has happened so far, i.e. the two murder cases that Kent Fisher has solved, his animal sanctuary and his personal life. However, I would recommend reading the series from the start, simply because it’s so good.

‘No Remorse’ is an addictive read which you will find hard to put down.

I give this book 5 out of 5.

Blog Tour

To celebrate the publication of ‘No Remorse’, the lovely Caroline Vincent of Bits about Books has organised a blog tour. Be sure to visit all these fantastic blogs.

Blog Tour – ‘No Bodies’ by Robert Crouch

‘No Bodies’ is the second book in the Kent Fisher series. It was published yesterday the 19th October 2017 in paperback and as an eBook. I am delighted to be taking part in the blog tour for Robert Crouch’s new book. I would like to thank both Caroline Vincent who has done a great job of organising this tour and Robert Crouch for my review copy of ‘No Bodies’.

Having recently solved a murder Kent Fisher has become something of a hero. So when Colonel Witherington seeks his help in finding his missing wife Kent isn’t too sure that he wants to get involved, especially as the police believe that she ran off with Colin Miller, a rather dubious caterer. Kent has also got problems of his own and it doesn’t look like things are about to get any easier for him.

When enquiries reveal that another woman has gone missing, Kent picks up a trail that went cold more than a year ago. However, he is struggling to find a connection between the two women and a third missing wife makes things even more confusing. Surely they can’t all of run away?

There could be a killer on the loose in Downland, but with no motive, connection or bodies, Kent may never uncover the truth.

I really enjoyed ‘No Accident’, so I couldn’t wait to read ‘No Bodies’. I love Robert Crouch’s style of writing and the humour. I was so looking forward to catching up with Kent Fisher and his beloved dog, Columbo.

Following on from the first book in the series Kent’s career is in jeopardy and he is awaiting the outcome. As well as working as an environmental health officer he also runs an animal sanctuary. With no salary coming in he wouldn’t be able to keep it open. You wouldn’t think that things could possibly get any worse for Kent would you, but they do. When a young girl ends up in hospital with an E. coli infection, fingers point at Kent. He could lose just about everything.

Although Kent didn’t really want to get involved in the search for the Colonel’s missing wife, he soon became intrigued and started investigating with the help of his colleague, Gemma. A few leads led to a shocking discovery for Kent and one that was a little too close to home. I personally thought that this was quite a complicated case. The author did a good job of keeping me guessing as to who the murderer was.

I loved reading about Colonel Witherington’s house and I almost felt as if I was being given a guided tour. It sounded very nice, though the stuffed animals put me off a bit. I also liked the various references to freezers throughout the story.

‘No Bodies’ is an exciting and fast-paced read with a number of twists and turns. I really hope there are more books in this series to come. Robert Crouch is fast becoming a favourite author.

I give this book 5 out of 5.

Cover Reveal – ‘No Bodies’ by Robert Crouch

I am absolutely thrilled to be taking part in the cover reveal for ‘No Bodies’ by Robert Crouch, the second book in the Kent Fisher series which is out as an eBook on the 19th October 2017.  I love this cover and I think it’s my favourite of the two so far.  There will of course be a blog tour taking place next month so keep a look out for that.  In the meantime here’s what ‘No Bodies’ is about.

 

Book Blurb

Why would environmental health officer, Kent Fisher, show any interest in finding Daphne Witherington, the missing wife of a longstanding family friend?

The police believe she ran off with Colin Miller, a rather dubious caterer, and Kent has problems of his own when a young girl who visits his animal sanctuary is rushed to hospital.

When enquiries into Colin Miller reveal a second missing wife, Kent picks up a trail that went cold over a year ago. But he’s struggling to find a connection between the women, even when he discovers a third missing wife.

Is there a killer on the loose in Downland?

With no motive, no connection and no bodies, Kent may never uncover the truth.

Blog Tour – ‘No Accident’ by Robert Crouch

Earlier this month I took part in the cover reveal for ‘No Accident’.  You can see it here:-

https://aloverofbooks.wordpress.com/2017/08/10/cover-reveal-no-accident-by-robert-crouch/

I am delighted to be closing the blog tour celebrating the re-release of ‘No Accident’. This tour was arranged by the lovely Caroline Vincent of Bits About Books. Read on for my review.

‘No Accident’ is set in and around the beautiful South Downs of East Sussex and takes place over four days. Kent Fisher is an environmental health officer working for his local Council. He loves watching detective programmes on TV and he doesn’t believe that anything happens by accident. So when he is notified of a fatal work accident at Tombstone Adventure Park, Kent goes and investigates despite the fact that he has a restraining order against him. Whilst there he clashes with the owner, Miles Birchill who has his own reasons to stop the investigation.

Kent is determined to prove that this was no accident before anyone else is killed. Unfortunately, things aren’t made easy for him and he is in for some rather unpleasant surprises.

Having read the blurb for ‘No Accident’ this book really appealed to me. It just seemed so different. An environmental health officer investigating a suspicious death, how wonderful! I also really like the fact that the author has used some of his own experiences for this story. South Downs where this book is mostly set sounded lovely too.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading ‘No Accident’. It was so good that I found myself standing at the bus stop after getting off the bus so that I could finish the end of a chapter before going home. It all got very exciting especially towards the end. I warmed to Kent Fisher straightaway. There was so much I liked about him including how he cared about animals, his ability to smell a rat a mile off and the way he went about solving the mystery. Oh, and I mustn’t forget his wonderful sense of humour and sarcasm. I loved reading about Kent’s little dog, Columbo, named after the TV detective. He sounded absolutely adorable and I really hope that he features in the rest of the series.

There were some real shockers throughout this story. In the space of just a few hours Kent’s world changed for good. I’m not sure I could have coped with what was thrown at him had I been in his situation, but Kent carried on regardless. He was determined to reveal the truth and he certainly wasn’t going to give up. Perhaps Kent could open his own Private Detective business one day?

‘No Bodies’, the second book in the Kent Fisher Mystery series is out this October. I am so glad that I have been introduced to this series and I will definitely be following it.

I give this book 5 out of 5.

Cover Reveal – ‘No Accident’ by Robert Crouch

This is the brand new cover for ‘No Accident’, the first book in the Kent Fisher series which is being re-released this month.  Isn’t it just fab!  I will be taking part in the blog tour so you’ll find out what I think about ‘No Accident’ then.  In the meantime here’s what its about.

 

Book Blurb

Nothing happens by accident, according to Kent Fisher, an environmental health officer with more baggage than an airport carousel. When he ignores a restraining order to investigate the death of Syd Collins in a work accident at Tombstone Adventure Park, he clashes with the owner, playboy millionaire, Miles Birchill, who has his own reasons to block the investigation.

Determined to uncover the truth, Kent casts aside procedure and defies suspension when he becomes convinced that Collins’ death is no accident.

But as Kent rushes to identify the killer and prevent more deaths, he faces even more unpleasant surprises when his professional and private worlds collide with devastating consequences.

Set in and around the beautiful South Downs of East Sussex, No Accident is the first novel in a new series that brings a fresh and irreverent twist to the traditional whodunit.
