Val McDermid wrote a book fairly recently with a similar situation. People climbing up the building discover a dead body in a niche at the too of the building. Of course it turns out to be murder.

I know I have read about this before, and I have a dim memory of it figuring in a mystery novel set at Cambridge in the 1930s.

The Skeleton Road is the Val McDermid title.

That's what I call higher education.

This activity features in Jon Manchip White's NIGHTCLIMBER, and was also at the center of an episode of GRANTCHESTER not long ago.

I read NIGHTCLIMBER many years ago. This activity is also a slight part of Roger Zelazny's DOORWAYS IN THE SAND.
