THE KENT FISHER MYSTERIES #1
ROBERT CROUCH @robertcrouchuk
Bits about Books is thrilled and proud to show you the awesome new cover for No Accident! I love the cover, the colours, the stunning English countryside… It looks just perfect for the new release of the first book in the detective series, featuring Environmental Health Officer Kent Fisher who investigates murders in and around ‘Kent Fisher County‘ – the stunning South Downs in the south of England, “the picturesque backdrop for the Kent Fisher Mysteries.”

Kent Fisher Mysteries #1
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.

| What Readers Say |
“This is a traditional English murder mystery, and at its heart is Kent Fisher—a man with a troubled past, an aptitude for witty one-liners, and the fashion sense of Lieutenant Columbo on a bad day! When Kent attends what looks like an industrial accident, his inquiring mind and natural suspicion lead him into an investigation that will ultimately challenge all he’s ever believed in. A most enjoyable read.”
– Ellie Dean, author of the ‘Beach View Boarding House’ series
“With a lead character that is so much more than ‘just another copper”, Robert Crouch has brought both a fresh voice and a new twist to conventional crime drama.”
– Alaric Bond, author of the ‘Fighting Sail’ series
“Expect sharp dialogue and irreverent humour in this whodunit which pays homage to the traditional murder mystery, while striking a contemporary and irreverent note.”
– Crime Fiction Lover
| 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, the author 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 Crouch 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.
