It is our honour today to be the next stop on the blog tour of No Accident by Robert Crouch.
Alison’s review of:
No Accident by Robert Crouch
**** 4 stars
Nothing happens by accident, according to Kent Fisher, an environmental health officer with more baggage than an airport carousel. When he ignores a restraining order to investigate the death of Syd Collins in a work accident at Tombstone Adventure Park, he clashes with the owner, playboy millionaire, Miles Birchill, who has his own reasons to block the investigation.
Determined to uncover the truth, Kent casts aside procedure and defies suspension when he becomes convinced that Collins’ death is no accident.
But as Kent rushes to identify the killer and prevent more deaths, he faces even more unpleasant surprises when his professional and private worlds collide with devastating consequences.
Set in and around the beautiful South Downs of East Sussex, No Accident is the first novel in a new series that brings a fresh and irreverent twist to the traditional whodunit.
This book kept me interested from the very beginning. I have never read a mystery before where the main character was an Environmental Health Office, it was a refreshing change.
Kent Fisher seems to have taken on a whole lot when he starts to investigate a work based accident which leaves him with lots of questions and an inkling that maybe it wasn’t an accident after all!
Kent is a great character who loves his detective mysteries and now finds himself in the middle of his very own mystery.
He is stubborn and refuses to back down, as he is adamant that he will get to the bottom of what happened to Collins.
Though through his determination he also finds out some old family secrets.
A really good cosy mystery that fans of Agatha Christie and the like would thoroughly enjoy reading on a cold winters night by the fireside.
