The Colour of Bee Larkham's Murder

Sarah J. Harris

There are three things you need to know about Jasper. 1. He sees the world completely differently. 2. He can't recognise faces - not even his own. 3. He is the only witness to the murder of his neighbour, Bee Larkham. But uncovering the truth about that night will change his world forever.


Teenage Jasper cannot recognise faces. He has synaesthesia, a condition where he interprets sounds as colours. When neighbour Bee Larkham vanishes, he sees ‘ice-blue crystals with glittery edges and jagged, silver icicles’. Did Jasper kill Bee? He’s not sure… But he’s seen the colour of murder.
