principled, passionate, irreverent
‘Kent is an incredibly likeable character with a delicious sense of sometimes quite dark humour and he makes a fabulous main character. 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.’
Eva, Novel Deelights.
Kent Fisher’s spent his life opposing those who would harm or take advantage of the less fortunate.
Whether he was opposing fox hunting or protecting the environment from developers, GM crops and fracking, he led by example, taking on the wealthy, the greedy and the establishment.
Though an environmental health officer by profession, his true passion is the small animal sanctuary in the South Downs of East Sussex, where he lives with his West Highland White Terrier, Columbo.
But trouble is never far away.
When he sets out to investigate a fatal work accident at Tombstone Adventure Park, he’s soon embroiled in a murder investigation that will change his life forever.
Environmental health officers make good detectives
Environmental health officers (EHO) are law enforcement officers, experienced in complex investigations and prosecuting serious offenders.
They work with the police, fire and rescue, and national agencies to protect the environment and public health.
Various aspects of environmental health work feature in the Kent Fisher mysteries to offer readers a glimpse into worlds they may know little about.
If you’d like to know more about the work of EHOs, please visit the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health website.
