Hi, and thanks for stopping by.

When you pick up a Kent Fisher novel, you’ll get more than a murder mystery. That’s because Kent Fisher is an environmental health officer. He’s neither a police officer nor a private detective, which means you get a traditional murder mystery with a fresh twist.

It’s also a contemporary twist that incorporates environmental and animal welfare issues. The characters all have their own stories and conflicts, which make up an ever changing and evolving backstory that flows through the series, adding another layer to the novels.


Take a look at Kent’s latest investigation in No Going Back, available from Amazon.

Then there’s Kent Fisher, described as a master of one-liner, bringing a touch of humour, and occasionally romance, to the stories. His West Highland white terrier, Columbo, is also a favourite with readers.

If you enjoy a traditional murder mystery that deals with contemporary themes and issues, built around a character one reader described as ‘a wonderful creation, unique in crime literature’, then take a look around my website to find out more.
