Summary

When the vertically challenged Johnny Naples entrusts Tim Diamond with a package worth over three million pounds, he’s making a big mistake. Tim Diamond is the worst detective in the world. Next day, Johnny’s dead, Tim feels the heat, and his smart younger brother, Nick, gets the package – and every crook in town on his back!

Brilliant!

A really enjoyable book as both of the kids were enthralled by it (8 yrs +11 yrs) because of the humour, adventure and how everything went wrong for the two brothers. Kept you guessing throughout as to the importance of the maltesers. Some great bad guy characters such as the Fat Man. Great story for the whole family!

10/10

This was my first ever audio book I've ever listened to. I really enjoyed the plot line especially because it was filled with exitmemt, enjoyment and fun laughs. If you like Action, Adventure, Comedy then you'll love This! Horowitz, this is a great book. Also I want to thank Nickolas Grace for an amazing performance. Thank you.

Happy to have rediscovered this book

I read this book as a teenager and loved it then. Now it’s a bit dated, but it’s still really entertaining. Gotta love it for containing underage drinking, queer nazi villains and loads of other good stuff
