Tim Diamond is possibly the world's worst detective. He's dense, he's distracted, he's unbelievably dim-it's a good thing his younger brother Nick is around! Nick knows there'll be trouble when Tim's entrusted with a package worth over five million dollars, but he doesn't know how much trouble. When the owner of the package is murdered, Tim gets the blame, Nick gets the package, and every crook in town is out to get them! Can Nick outwit them and turn this candy caper into a sweet deal for the Diamond Brothers?

Full of humor and non-stop action, this mystery series by the author of Stormbreaker will leave readers eagerly awaiting more.

The Falcons Malteser marks the first book in the new Diamond Brothers Mysteries series. The story follows the life of Nick Diamond (formerly Nick Simple) and the adventures of his wacky brother. Herbert Simple has been kicked off the police force and has decided to start his own private detection agency. Renaming himself Tim Diamond, he is eager to accept his first case from a dwarf name Johnny Naples. All he has to do is baby-sit a small package Johnny shoves into his hand for a few days. How hard can it be?
Nick and Tim learn just how hard. The next day, Naples is dead and Nick has to use his own smarts to get every criminal in London off his back.

This book was very good. I was very surprised to find that when I started to read, I was almost at once submersed in the plot. Pretty good for I book I picked up just because I had nothing better to read&. For those of you who are fans of British literature, you wont be disappointed. Originally published in England, this book has all the marks of a great British book.

It has relatively short chapters that each end in somewhat of a cliff-hanger. The novel is a spin off of the 1940s PI movies and also pays homage to the movie The Maltese Falcon that the title is a spoof of. It was easy to read, and kept me interested enough to make it to the end of the book. I cant wait to read the next book in the series. A great, fast paced mystery recommended for any reader over the age of 10.
