I love classic murder mysteries with their twists and turns, red herrings and intriguing suspects.

While the format and style have hardly changed since Agatha Christie and her contemporaries began to baffle readers, murder mystery novels have adapted well to changing times and today’s influences.

There’s no shortage of detectives, whether police or amateur, to unravel the clues and solve the most baffling of cases.

But none of them are like Kent Fisher, a character ‘unique in crime literature‘, according to reviewer Susan Corcoran of Booksaremycwtches.


No Accident

When No Accident, the first Kent Fisher murder mystery was released in 2016, Crime Fiction Lover said,

“Expect sharp dialogue and irreverent humour in this whodunit, which manages to pay homage to the traditional murder mystery, while striking a contemporary and irreverent note.”

When he’s not eating and sleeping, he likes to wander with me around the beautiful South Downs and its picturesque villages to research settings for the latest book (and chase the occasional rabbit).
