This is a great book about two girls called Nik and Norva who run a detective agency together and find Hugo Knightly Webb murdered in their high rise estate. They're immediately on the case to find his murderer, and determined to figure out who did really did it before the police come to the conclusion of their dad murdering Hugo, lots of the evidence points to him! My favourite character was Norva as she can be very funny at times. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of mystery and crime books.

I found it funny how Serena was playing a long acting AND lying when it was her all ALONG.

Contemporary urban crime novel, told with energy and humour. Sister duo, Nik and Norva, solve the murder of their art teacher, Hugo, with determination and witty examination of the quirky inhabitants of The Tri estate. A fun and fast read for those who love the detective genre. This was a great book to supplement my class's study of classic crime fiction.

This is a genre that I don't normally read or enjoy so I was deliberately stretching my experience. Lots to like. Modern. Good for children 7-11 perhaps who enjoy the modern equivalent of Famous 5.

A great story of two sisters solving a mystery. Loved the diversity of characters and the setting of the story. Have since read Mic Drop, the sequel and shared in my year 5 classroom.

High Rise Mystery is a murder mystery that will keep you guessing until the very end. I loved it because it was very well written and the characters were brought to life. I would recommend this to anyone who likes mysteries aged 10+.

King Mars Godzilla 05.09.2020

It was clever, and cool. I thought that it was rather stressful and funny. My favourite character was Norma Alexander, because she is funny and realistic. I would recommend it to somebody else, but it is a very clever mystery. I definitely didn't get it!

Inspector Mandrake Shortbread 04.09.2020

This is a gripping mystery book that has you laughing and crying at the same time. 5 star, reccomend.

Nurse Petunia Porridge-Oats 01.09.2020

I enjoyed the characters in the book very much. They were funny and determined. They never gave up and were smarter than the police!

Bit of a complicated plot so I didn't really enjoy the book.
