I am very pleased to be opening the Blog Tour for Robert Crouch’s new book No Bodies. Thank you Caroline from bitaboutbooks.net for including me in the tour.
no motive. No connection.
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.

This is book 2 in Robert’s ‘Kent Fisher Mysteries’ series, which I didn’t realise until I started reading it.
This is the first book of Robert’s that I have read and it was a brilliant read. As I have said above this is the second in a series, and as I haven’t read book 1 I didn’t know the back story and how the characters all linked together, but it was still a really good read in spite of this as I soon got to know who was who.
I really liked the character of Kent Fisher and the author creates some very in depth developments in him, which I thought were great. When I started reading it I couldn’t work out why an environmental officer would have investigated any murders but he seemed to do it so well that it didn’t really matter in the end.
The story progressed well and didn’t drag at all, with the conclusion of the story absolutely brilliantly written. I give the story 5 stars, and am now off to read the first one in the series, even though I would suggest you read that first as there are lots of spoilers in book 2 relating to book 1.

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.
