Kent Fisher Mystery #3
Old sins cast long shadows.
An old man dead. Dementia or murder? Threats won’t stop Kent Fisher from finding out.
At luxury retirement home, Nightingales, appearance matters more than the truth. But what is the truth? Was Anthony Trimble killed as he predicted? If so, who wanted him out of the way, and why?
Kent puzzles over the only clue Trimble left him. Are the numbers a mysterious code that could reveal his dark secret, or items on a takeaway menu?
Kent has to dig deep. Then people start dying.
Will Kent win the race to discover the truth, or become the next victim?
With shades of Agatha Christie and Sue Grafton, No Remorse brings a refreshing twist to the traditional murder mystery.
Many thanks to the author and blog tour organiser Caroline Vincent for the ARC in return for an honest review.
I know I say it every time I read and review a book in the Kent Fisher Mystery series, but I will never tire of repeating this, it would be perfect Sunday evening viewing.
Dear BBC please make these into a top quality drama!
The characterisation in No Remorse is perfect. No character is flat or boring, each has a role to play in the continuing drama. Kent himself is a brilliant creation, part time crime solver, full time council employee. He is the perfect blend of ordinary and at the same time gifted and intuitive.
For me the story is great because it harks back to the traditional murder mysteries of authors such as Agatha Christie. As No Remorse unfolds, so does the mystery surrounding the death of an old man. The story is gently teased out and the true motivations of the characters are revealed over time. It’s character driven, but the story, gives them the perfect narrative to shine.
What is also great is that this book can be read as a standalone or part of the series. I’m my opinion you gain more by reading all three of the series in order, but can still enjoy reading No Remorse alone.
No Remorse can be purchased from Amazon.
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.
