I agree with the other readers who say that this is not the best of the Diamond Brothers stories. There isn't much of a plot in this one, nor is there very much action; the jokes and witty remarks are not quite as funny as they are in some of the other stories.

As the story starts, the brothers are broke and Christmas is not far away. Their affairs improve when Tim is retained to protect a glamorous international celebrity called Minerva, a pop princess and film star of Greek origin, who is receiving death threats on the occasion of her visit to London to switch on the Christmas lights and open the Santa Claus grotto in Harrods. Her husband insists on hiring a private detective, both for extra security and to find the originator of the threats, and her manager is ordered to find one and bring him in for approval. We need to wait until the end of the story to learn why the obviously idiotic and incompetent Tim was selected for the job. I hadn't realised that Tim was 28 years old by the way. After making a fool of himself yet again, he actually makes some sensible remarks about his unsuitability for the private detection business. As usual, it is Nick who notices anomalies, solves all of the mysteries and identifies the would-be killer and the reasons for the threats. The story that began on such a low note ends on a much higher one when the manager gives the brothers a £10,000 cheque in gratitude for all they have done to further the career of Minerva, his most famous and lucrative client.

Minerva does seem an unlikely name for someone of Greek origin: I realise that it is supposed to make us think of Madonna, but Minerva was the Roman name for the Greek goddess Athena.

I gave this to a group of primary six boys who are able readers but not yet book lovers. It went down very well indeed, in fact I will be getting more like it. Horowitz has great style and entertaining plot but with this series they are shorter and more attractive to kids who are not yet avid readers. Fact that they enjoyed it and finished it is great for me, the teacher. Means they are developing appetite for more - on their way to becoming book lovers. Thank you Anthony Horowitz. I rated it high. Downloaded onto six kindles. I use kindles in the classroom.

This is yet again another great diamond brothers book by Anthony Horowitz and it was amazing to read because you didn't know who done it until the very end and it kept you interested the whole way through
