Reviews

Fans of Anthony Horowitz's Alex Rider Adventures series will glom onto Three of Diamonds (2002), also by Horowitz, which gathers a trio of Diamond Brothers Mysteries. Tim and Nick Diamond search for an MIA philanthropist in "The Blurred Man," wind up in a prison in Paris in "The French Confection," and "I Know What You Did Last Wednesday" finds them trapped on a Scottish isle with a murderer.

"Horowitz has become a writer who converts boys to reading." The Sunday Times"

Gr 5-8-Tim and Nick Simple, also known as the Diamond Brothers, find themselves in the middle of mystery and mayhem in three action-packed short stories. In each humorous episode, Nick, 13, must solve the crime before his older brother, the world's worst detective, either bumbles the investigation or gets them both killed. In "The Blurred Man," the Simples must determine who flattened philanthropist Lenny Smile with a steamroller. A trip to France becomes a near-death experience when they find themselves in the middle of a drug ring in "The French Confection." Finally, Tim is invited to a class reunion that becomes deadly in "I Know What You Did Last Wednesday." Nick is a realistic character with a voice that is sarcastic and fresh, while Tim's lack of intelligence makes even the most dangerous situations laughable. Plenty of plays on words add to the humor. Readers looking for an entertaining mystery will enjoy this sequel to The Falcon's Malteser (Philomel, 2004) and hope for more.-Angela M.
