I have 3 boys and the oldest is just starting to read anthony horowitz. I have read a few as well and this book certainly ranks highly in our house. Funny, easy to read, not complicated and with a great ending, highly recommended

Ignore the imbecile whose review will be with mine. The Falcon's Malteaser is a great read: it moves at a fast pace, with humour and drama in equal measure. It is aimed at young children, so the writing is relatively simple, but that is no bad thing.

Overall, a fun and enjoyable book, especially for younger readers.

I had read the Alex Rider books, and the Groosham Grange books, so I decided to have a shot at the Diamond Brothers books.
Am I glad I started to read them.
These books are a lot more light-hearted than the Alex Rider books but definitely as good.
The chapter titles had me rolling on the floor laughing (The Fat Man, Grannies).
I thought that the plot was well worked out even though it was a bit slow near the beginning and took a while to get into second gear.
But when it did, boy did it take off. The chase in Selfridges was excellent. The best bit of the chase was when Nick ran through Santa's Grotto and was pulled onto Santa's lap. Santa got shot. He died.
My favourite character was The Fat Man. I expected (like everyone who has read the books) that he would be big and tough , but it turns out he has been on a diet and lost a bit too much weight.
The finale is brilliant; I knew that Betty Charlady would be important in the plot but I didn't think of this.
All in all, it turned out to be a superb read and I would definitely reccommend it to anybody who enjoys Anthony Horowitz novels.

This was a brilliant success on a car journey to France with 8 year old son, and daughters 20 and 18. We were all hooked and it made the journey pass much faster. I wasn't sure when I bought it if our son was going to be too young for it, but in fact he wanted to listen again on the way home - and favoured it over DVD's or playing on his DS!!

Format: Paperback
Wonderful comic novel, full of allusions to, and parodies of, detective films and stories. Like the Simpsons it can be enjoyed by adults on one level, whilst children will still enjoy it without any knowledge of what is being sent up. I read this to my children, 11 and 8, and they both loved it.
