A fresh approach to crime fiction

With their complex plots, entertaining characters and irreverent humour, the Kent Fisher mysteries pay homage to the traditional whodunit, while offering a new and exciting alternative in the busy world of crime fiction.

When environmental health officer, Kent Fisher, investigates a fatal accident at work, he has no idea it’s a murder in disguise. But as the inconsistencies mount up, he begins to realise the truth and sets out to find the killer.

From here, it’s only a matter of time before he becomes embroiled in his next baffling murder investigation.
