Fun doesn’t come more hardboiled! Anthony Horowitz’s Diamond Brothers adventures, starring gormless private eye Tim Diamond and his much sharper kid brother Nick, have all the excitement of the Alex Rider books plus first-class jokes, lots of them. Adult readers will spot that they are parodies of the detective fiction of Raymond Chandler and Dashiel Hammett, and very sharply done. There are two for the price of one here, and they’re certain to set young readers off in search of more. Fortunately, as Tim Diamond says in a new introduction to the book, he’s cracked more cases than the entire baggage-handling department at Heathrow Airport, and Horowitz has written them all. ~ Andrea Reece
