For fans of Agatha Christie and cosy mysteries, for people who loved the quirky Lieutenant Columbo and the deductive reasoning of Chief Inspector Morse: this is your cup of tea! Follow me once again to the British countryside of the beautiful South Downs where Kent lives on a small part of the estate, formerly belonging to his father. There you find his animal sanctuary and his loyal dog Columbo.
Kent Fisher Mysteries #2
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.‘

What Readers Say
“Robert Crouch has brought both a fresh voice and a new twist to conventional crime drama.”
– Alaric Bond
“I thoroughly enjoyed reading ‘No Accident’. It was so good that I found myself standing at the bus stop after getting off the bus so that I could finish the end of a chapter before going home. It all got very exciting especially towards the end. I warmed to Kent Fisher straightaway. There was so much I liked about him including how he cared about animals, his ability to smell a rat a mile off and the way he went about solving the mystery.”
– Sonya Alford, A Lover of Books
“This book kept me interested from the very beginning. I have never read a mystery before where the main character was an Environmental Health Officer, it was a refreshing change. Kent is a great character who loves his detective mysteries and now finds himself in the middle of his very own mystery. A really good cosy mystery that fans of Agatha Christie and the like would thoroughly enjoy reading.”
– Alison Pearson, Black Cat Book Reviews
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.
