When justice lets you down, what’s left?
Highways Inspector, Derek Forster, couldn’t go on after the death of his wife. Even though he had a secret lover, he took his own life. Or did he?
Samson Capote, the restaurateur from hell, brutally attacked and left to die in a deep freezer. Did he antagonise too many people, or was he sharing Forster’s secret lover?
Millionaire entrepreneur, Clive Chesterton, drinks too much, falls from his yacht and drowns in Sovereign Harbour. Why did he have Forster’s missing journals in his cabin?
When Kent Fisher becomes a murder suspect, he realises he could be the next victim of a killer who shows no mercy. With time running out, can Kent identify the killer before the killer gets to him?
Last year in May 2019 I did a review for No More Lies for Robert, it was not only a brilliant read, it was a pleasure to be introduced to such great stories and characters!
Once again I was not let down by No Mercy, the characters are seamless and engaging, along with a fascinating story that dips into different territory, that makes the reader engulfed within what the characters are going through and what Kent Fisher – the main character is thinking! I am an avid fan of Agatha Christie and I have absolute no qualms in saying, these stories really do have a close relation to the original classics!
I was engrossed from the beginning, there is no doubt you can read these as a stand alone, however as I had already read the previous book, it gave me a little insight into the life and goings on, within Kent Fishers’ friends and relationships.
I have a fondness for one main character and that is Columbo, this is Kent’s dog, adored and plays quite an important role within this story. When Kent is at home he is not far, bounding towards him as he returns, I love those moments, especially when he starts to discuss the case with him!
This story brings fascinating lines of enquiry, from a man that dies with no one to arrange his funeral with unusual circumstances, Kent’s ex-girl friend that dramatically decides to turn up and the torment and uproar of a local restaurant, that is stirring things up for the Environmental Health department with a fascinating ending – Has Kent gone to far!?
I would definitely recommend reading these books, I have now read two and I’m hooked! I will be ‘back reading’ the previous books, I feel I just need a ‘Kent Fisher murder mystery fix!’

About the Author
Robert Crouch writes the kind of books he loves to read. Books ranging from the classic whodunit by authors like Agatha Christie, the feisty private eye novels of Sue Grafton, thrillers by Dick Francis, and the modern crime fiction of Peter James and LJ Ross.
He created Kent Fisher as an ordinary person, drawn into solving murders. He’s an underdog battling superior forces and minds, seeking justice and fair play in a cruel world. These are the values and motivations that underpinned Robert’s long career as an environmental health officer.
He now writes full time from his home in East Sussex. When not writing, he’s often find walking on the South Downs with his West Highland white terrier, Harvey, taking photographs and researching the settings for future Kent Fisher mysteries.
