An award-winning detective spoof by the author of "Granny". When a dwarf comes into the office and leaves a package, Tim Diamond, the world's worst private dick, is faced with his toughest case yet. And when the office is ransacked, Tim and his too-smart younger brother Nick open the package to discover a box of Maltesers. Nick's quick-thinking saves the Maltesers from Tim's stomach, but can he solve the mystery? Who was the dwarf and why was he murdered only days after his visit? Why is the Fat Man after the Diamonds? And how can a box of Maltesers really be the key to a three-and-a-half million pound fortune? Antony Horowitz is the author of "Groosham Grange" (winner of the 1990 Lancashire Book Award), "Granny" (shortlisted for the 1995 Children's Book Award) and "South by South East". He has also edited "The Puffin Book of Horror Stories", and has written numerous screenplays, including "Robin of Sherwood", "Poirot" and "Anna Lee".
