Environmental health officer and part-time sleuth, Kent Fisher, finds himself caught in the middle of another mystery when he agrees to investigate the disappearance of Daphne Witherington, wife of a family friend. But Daphne isn’t the only missing woman in Downland and Kent is soon rubbing people up the wrong way as he struggles to find a connection in a seemingly unconnected puzzle. And as if that wasn’t enough, he must also contend with an outbreak of E.coli that could threaten the future of the sanctuary, as well as his job…
This is the third Robert Crouch book I’ve read and the second in his Kent Fisher series. As with the first one (No Accident), the story is cleverly told with a well-thought-out storyline. Though a little more complex than Book 1, a bevy of suspects and other disparate characters pepper the plot with a delicious variety of reddish herrings, building to a climax that surprised me, but which also made perfect sense.
Mr Crouch is a great storyteller with a talent for creating memorable characters. ‘No Bodies’ is a darn good read that’ll satisfy anyone who loves mysteries that don’t simply trot out the usual amateur sleuth rituals. I’m looking forward to the next book already.
I really like this book review, Colin. A little bit about the story line, a little bit about your thoughts and a little bit about the author and his writing.
Thanks Robbie, your comments are always appreciated 🙂
