No Remorse – Robert Crouch
Published: 7th May 2018
Rating: 5 stars
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.
No Remorse was an enjoyable read that I quickly got involved in. I love the fact that Kent is a different character in a murder mystery series as he’s an environmental health officer. Robert has created a brilliant character in Kent and he is a delight to read about. This is book 3 in the series, it can be read as a standalone but it’s best to start from the beginning and get to know Kent as a character.
As Kent is an environmental health officer, he’s at a retirement home, Nightingales where he meets an elderly man called Trimble. Trimble told Kent something quite alarming and shortly afterwards he is dead. I love the fact that Kent loves to solve crime, I think the series will appeal to a wide range of people as it is so different.
Robert has written this book incredibly well, we meet some different characters and it is all written with a sense of humour . I found this book to be a perfect weekend read, curl up with a hot drink and solve crimes along with Kent. The characters are well developed and I really feel as if I’ve made a friend in Kent – I enjoy reading about him and he is a pleasure to be in the fictional world with.
I found as Robert has worked as an environmental health officer, he has drawn on his experiences and as a result I found the book to be believable in terms of Kent’s work. I love books that draw upon the authors personal experience, we get to understand more about different jobs.
No Remorse was a fun, well-written murder mystery. It reminds me of the old style murder mysteries which is a good thing! I love the characters, the mystery and Robert kept me guessing until the end. I’m looking forward to reading what Kent will solve next!

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.
