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

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.

From the moment you open this book, you know you're in for a great experience. Horowitz' witty language just mesmerises you and has you well engrossed from the very outset. The storyline is really quite astounding, and just how Horowitz managed to conjure it I can't think. The number of different twists and turns that play out in so few pages ensure that you WILL NOT be bored. Oh, and the characters! Nicholas is wisecracking, funny, and hilariously egocentric, and Herbert is endearingly scatty, adding that well-needed comic relief. The bad guys ain't half bad either: the fat man, perhaps the best of them, is subtly menacing and disturbing. The action sequences really are something to behold as well. Explosions ignite, shots are fired, and even a bit of hand-to-hand combat is dealt from time to time. This is probably as visceral as a children's book is allowed to get. This is an action-packed, tongue-in-cheek-humor-filled, tightly plotted, original masterwork. Read it and be blown away.

The book is definitely a children's book but well written and enjoyable to read.However it would not compel me to read another of the authors books in this series but would recommend the author to my boys aged 11 and 15 to read.

Nick Diamond: Poor and can't do anything about it. But doesn't wnat to be considered a charity case. Tim Diamond: Poor and can't do anything about it. But does want to be considered a charity case. To make money, Tim is a full-time self-employed private-eye. His business is called Diamond Investigations Inc. But as Nick says, the only inc. in that office was in Tim's pen! This business isn't the most successful London business of all time, so Nick and Tim are surprised when they get they get called-in on by a dwarf! He hands them a box and tells them by no means, to open it...
This book gave the best laughs of my life. My favourite book of Anthony Horowitz ever!

This book is simply hilarious. The jokes seamlessly blend in to the story unlike other books which go out of there way to be funny. The story is involving with fabulous characters and illustrations. Unlike most childrens books, The Falcons Malteser is not sickeningly politically correct. In this modern age it is a welcome breath of fresh air. Five stars.

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.

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!!
