“Sisters Nik and Norva, the first black detective duo in British children’s fiction, solve a murder mystery on their estate by systematic deduction. The victim is their art teacher, who has inspired them in the classroom, and for whom they are determined to see justice. This story, written in short paragraphs often no more than a sentence long, with a good deal of dialogue using apposite slang and idiom, reads with a rare freshness and energy.”
