I seem to recall saying last time that it’s a novel approach having an enviironmental officer involved in a crime situation and this remains so.
Kent is a bit gruff but means well, he is once more asked to investigate a missing woman but surely she has just done a moonlight flit with an undesirable, there can’t be any connection to a different missing person or a murder can there? After all there are No Bodies to substantiate this theory.
Kent also has an animal sanctuary which causes more hassles in his personal life when a youngster who works there becomes ill. Is Kent about to lose everything!? It’s nice to feel a connection to a character and Kent is certainly one who takes a bit of getting used to but his relationship with Columbo shows he is a decent guy underneath all his bluster.
The author has maintained his easy writing style with a mix of humour thrown in, this is a complex who dunnit and I would suggest it is beneficial to read book one first to get background history and make this a more enjoyable/satisfying read.
I enjoyed No Bodies and look forward to catching up with Kent again hopefully.
My thanks to the author and Caroline (Bits About Books) for my copy which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
The second Kent Fisher detective novel brings us back to the stunning South Downs – I loved reconnecting to Kent Fisher, the stubborn but loveable environmental health inspector who has no problem antagonising about everyone he comes to meet. He is in love with Gemma and I suspect she reciprocates those feelings – why else would she be angry at Kent’s lack of interest? I cannot wait to find out how this plotline will evolve in the next book(s)! The well-written story is fast-paced and left me with more questions with every page turned; needless to say I read the book in one session. What an ending, wow! That promises something for the next Kent Fisher book! No Bodies is an entertaining novel and I loved the references to the classic detectives, such as a housekeeper who looks like she walked “straight out of an Agatha Christie novel,” a dog named Columbo, a mystery to be solved.. to name a few things. I highly recommend the series
This is the second Kent Fisher mystery and follows directly on from the first, No Accident. I think you really need to read the first, as this would be confusing as a stand-alone. A little more explanation of who people are when they first appear in the book would help new readers. Having said that, this is equally refreshing, set as it is around the investigations of an environmental health officer, rather than a police officer. Kent Fisher is a warm, stubborn and occasionally hopeless character whom I couldn’t fail to warm to. The author handles his writing deftly and the story is very funny, witty and full of sharp observations. I really enjoy this series and look forward to more.
I received an advance review copy of this book.
Kent is an incredibly likeable character with a delicious sense of, sometimes quite dark, humour and he makes a fabulous main character. Since Kent is an Environmental Health Officer, the things he can or can’t do are limited and his determination to get to the truth keeps getting him into trouble. He doesn’t really have much authority, carries no weapons and relies purely on his wit. It’s a breath of fresh air to solve a mystery alongside a character that isn’t your typical chain-smoking and utterly flawed detective.
I thoroughly enjoyed this change of pace and if you enjoy your cosy mysteries, I have no doubt you will like the Kent Fisher Mysteries! I look forward to seeing more of Kent soon!
