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.
With thanks to Caroline Vincent – Bits and Books, for providing me with a mobi copy to review for the blog tour of No More Lies.
Kent Fisher is an environmental officer with an extra hobby or two! He loves to solve murders alongside investigating restaurants, that have vermin infestations. But his passion is his animal sanctuary, alongside his down to earth friend that supports him and his beloved dog Colombo – the name being so apt, gives a variety of storylines to follow.
As mentioned in the blurb above, this is very much on the lines of Agatha Christie writing, going through each avenue of investigation, with twists of new information and secrets along the way.
When DI Ashley Goodman arrives on the scene she is passionate about her job, however how far will she go, to get back into where she wants to be in the force!? She uses her charm to consistently persuade Kent to help her in her investigation.
Kent has his own problems with relationships, he becomes involved and it doesn’t always work out, however he meets someone new while investigating, who has similar tastes in his hobbies, which I feel will be a future blossoming relationship!
As the investigation continues, Kent’s secret relationship with his dad comes out in the open and causes some problems with the DI Goodman, making Kent question, how much does he know about his dad!?
The suspense to solve this 10 year old mystery continues right up to end, as the people involved become found, the reasons behind the murders and how they were connected, becomes clear.
A fabulous ‘whodunit’ read to enjoy, with secrets to uncover, laughter, passion and some lovely creatures to add to the mix, this is definitely one story to read!

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.
