No Bodies by Robert crouch is the second book in the Kent Fisher Mystery Series, a follow up from No Accident. Robert has put a different spin on the usual Detective characters, in that Kent Fisher is an environmental officer with no police background.
Synopsis
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.
Available to Buy

My Review

No Bodies by Robert Crouch, is a different read, I would recommend reading No Accident the first in the series beforehand due to a shortness of backstory in No Bodies, don’t get me wrong it could be read as a standalone but you would be missing out on the full effect of the character of Kent Fisher.
Kent Fisher an ordinary man, an environmental officer, (yip you read that right) not the usual Detective led book, ends up being entrusted by Colonel Witherington to find his missing wife Daphne, hopefully alive or to bring her murderer to justice. Upon searching Kent finds that Daphne isn’t the only woman to have gone missing, another two wives have vanished. Progressing through his investigation he discovers links to the women, can Kent bring justice to light for these women.
While Kent is an amateur investigator, a sleuth like Agatha Christie, his one true love is the animal sanctuary where he spends his time working. The sanctuary has problems there has been a case of E.coli, a young girl has contracted the infection and he could well be implicated in the investigation.
There are many hidden depths to No Bodies, the plot is intriguing in how Robert manages to run more than one plotline simultaneously, some parallel, some cross-over, each one bringing another spin to the plot, making No Bodies a book which will be hard for any reader to put down.
Thank you to Robert Crouch and Caroline for the advanced readers copy and the opportunity to be involved in the Blog Tour for No Bodies, I thoroughly enjoyed it and I hope many others do also.

Author Bio
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.
