Longlisted for the UKLA Book Awards 2020

Sisters Nik and Norva would agree that they are slightly obsessed with murder mystery series on the television so, when a body is discovered in their block of flats, they are sure they are the right people to discover the truth. Balancing jokey dialogue and insights into the reality of city life, Sharna Jackson has written a very likeable, fast-paced book.


High-rise Mystery Synopsis

The detective duo everyone is dying to meet! Summer in London is hot, the hottest on record, and there's been a murder in THE TRI: the high-rise home to resident know-it-alls, Nik and Norva. Who better to solve the case? Armed with curiosity, home-turf knowledge and unlimited time - until the end of the summer holidays anyway. The first whodunnit in a new mystery series by Sharna Jackson.

High-rise Mystery Press Reviews

I hope the High-rise Mystery series is a roaring success. More detective stories featuring children of colour are long overdue.   Malorie Blackman

I love crime books. I'm over the moon to see books starring the 11-year-old I also wanted to be. Bring on the bodies!  - Patrice Lawrence
