Whatever happens, don't tell anyone what you did to Bee Larkham.

'A rich tapestry. distinctive and compelling' Observer

Jasper is not ordinary. In fact, he would say he is extraordinary. His synaesthesia paints the sounds of his world in a kaleidoscope of colours that no one else can see. But on Friday, he discovered a new colour - the colour of murder.

He's sure something has happened to his neighbour, Bee Larkham, but no-one else seems to be taking it as seriously as they should be - they don't even believe that she's dead. The knife and the screams are all mixed up in his head and he's scared that he can't quite remember anything clearly.

But where is Bee? Why hasn't she come home yet? Jasper must uncover the truth about that night - including his own role in what happened.

Sarah J. Harris is an author and freelance education journalist who regularly writes for national newspapers. She became fascinated by synaesthesia and face blindness during her work as a journalist. THE COLOUR OF BEE LARKHAM'S MURDER is Sarah's debut adult novel. She lives in London with her husband and two young children.
