Review of No Remorse

My thanks to Chelle at Curled Up with a Good Book for another lovely review. So pleased you enjoyed the story.

‘The plot is brilliant – I hadn’t foreseen what was going to come at the end! Robert takes us on a complex and intriguing journey with the wicked twists and turns that I have come to expect, and love, from Roberts writing.  No Remorse takes you on a bit of an emotional rollercoaster – my feelings towards some of the characters changed numerous times!’

No Bodies Review

Another terrific review for No Bodies from Chelle at Curled up with a Book

‘You can’t help but be sucked in and enjoy the ride with Kent. The novel will make you laugh in places – Kent does get himself into some sticky situations – and I really enjoy the humour throughout the book. The plot is fantastic, with plenty of twists and turns to keep you completely gripped; and if that’s not enough – just wanting to know what will happen to Kent’s animal sanctuary will keep you turning the pages!’

No Mercy – Interview on Books Teacup and Reviews

My thanks to Yesha for some intriguing and enjoyable questions.

‘The challenge is invariably the same with all my books – keeping it fresh and credible, which isn’t easy when your main character isn’t a police officer or private detective.’

The challenge of writing a series

‘The Kent Fisher murder mysteries are a long way from the cop with a trauma, which seems to be one of the current trends in crime fiction. They’re traditional murder mysteries, driven by both character and plot to entertain readers.’

Tollingdon and the South Downs

When I created Kent Fisher, he lived at his animal sanctuary near to the fictional town of Tollingdon, north of Eastbourne. He worked for a fictional district council called, Downland, which covered a large part of the South Downs in East Sussex.

Downland manor, which is Kent’s home, was also fictional and set at the foot of the South Downs near to the real village of Folkington, close to the A27 to Brighton.

By creating a fictional town, I had the freedom to make it anything I wanted. My inspiration came from the town of Battle, situated on the site where Harold fought William the Conqueror in 1066.

By using Battle I could get the feel of the buildings and streets that would make up Tollingdon.

I also took inspiration from buildings in Rye, a little further down the coast.

Kent’s animal sanctuary is nestled at the bottom of the South Downs. He likes to go running over the hills, which give him some spectacular views across the green, rolling hills.

At dusk the view towards the coast from the hills above East Dean is breathtaking.

While the action in No Accident takes place in Tombstone Adventure Park about 12 miles north of Tollingdon, he always returns home to his animal sanctuary at Downland Manor.
