Today I’m on the blog tour for No More Lies by Robert Crouch…..
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.

This is the first time I’ve read one of the Kent Fisher novels and I loved it!
Kent is an Environmental Officer, runs an animal sanctuary (how could I NOT love him!) and helps solve crimes! He’s approached by DI Goodman to help look into a cold case with links to Kent…..She has a point to prove, and needs to solve this case after moving to the area after being transferred out of Brighton so she puts quite a lot of pressure on Kent (which is a bit unfair since it’s HER job to solve it!!). But will he able to help? What secrets will be uncovered? And who can these people trust?
I really enjoyed Robert Crouch’s writing style. It was easy and enjoyable to read, and easy to follow the plot. There are references to things that have happened in previous books, enough to make this readable as a standalone. It did make me want to go back and read the other books though (which I’ll definitely be doing!). The plot was well written and the ending…..(I won’t say any more!). I’m just pleased there will be another book!
Overall, a great read with a kind of cosy mystery feel! Most definitely recommended by me!
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.
