Steve Sharp

Steve Sharp

Meet Steve Sharp – an Afro-Caribbean detective trying to do the right thing in the tough world of gangsters and organised crime.

These stories are a low-level, fresh update of the traditional ‘hard-boiled’ tough detective fiction of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett. The texts are based around recognized high frequency vocabulary and emphasis has been placed on making the texts phonetically decodable wherever possible.

The books are designed to be read in sequence and the very low AR levels make them particularly attractive for older struggling readers.
