About the Book
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.
In his second book following the life of environmental official, Kent Fisher, Robert Crouch brings us a book that keeps us wanting more.
While I was not exposed to Crouch’s writing before this book, I highly recommend reading his first book, No Accident, before turning the pages of No Bodies. This tie will bring in the struggles that Kent is facing to full fruition and make for a more enjoyable connection with the characters.
Within the first few pages, Crouch introduces us to a character passionate about his dogs and saving the environment. Once you start, not only will you quickly fall in love with Fisher’s character and lively passion, you will inevitably be entranced with the journey (along with hardships) that Fisher faces.
Aside from the connection with the main character, Crouch does a good job of taking a wholesome novel into a thrilling page-turner. The quirky aspect of using an atypical detective reminds me of timeless plotlines that we know and love, and makes our perspective even more connected to Fisher’s journey. The end is one you will not be able to wait to get to (but when you do, you’ll sure wish there was more of Kent Fisher’s story to go around).
Overall, this was an excellent read, and the perfect book for a quiet rainy night sitting alongside your furry companion, with the crackle of the fireplace echoing in the silence around you.

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.
