Steve Sharp is a reading series for older struggling readers. Steve Sharp is an Afro-Caribbean detective trying to do the right thing in the tough world of gangsters and organised crime.

These stories are a fresh update of the traditional hard-boiled tough detective fiction of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett. The texts are based round recognised high frequency vocabulary and emphasis has been placed on making it possible to phonetically decode the texts wherever possible.

The books are black and white and illustrated throughout. The short clipped style of the 500-word stories is perfectly suited for older reluctant readers and struggling readers. The books are also suitable as back up reading for adult literacy programmes.

This pack contains all six books in the series:
Meet Steve Sharp
Looking for Jo
Finding Jo
Losing Jo
The Plan
