Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tim Diamond, the world’s worst private detective, is broke—as his much smarter younger brother Nick is quick to remind him. So when a mysterious stranger offers Tim a wad of cash for his overcoat, it seems like a stroke of good luck. But there are worse things in life than being broke. Being pumped full of lead, for one—which is what happens to the stranger, and could soon be the fate of the Diamond brothers, too, unless they can outwit the unknown assassin on their tail. . . .

This latest adventure by New York Times bestselling writer Anthony Horowitz will have mystery lovers laughing out loud as they help solve another Diamond Brothers caper.

Synopsis:

It looks like Tim, the world’s worst private detective, and Nick, his brainy kid brother, are in trouble again. They’re dead broke. But money is the least of their worries when a mysterious man bursts into their office and offers Tim a wad of cash for his coat. Minutes later, the stranger is dead and Nick and Tim are left to puzzle over his final words. What could he have meant by "suff bee suff-iss"? Or was it "south by southeast"? Neither one seems to make much sense, but the Diamond brothers will have to figure it out, and fast! Whoever killed the stranger is now after Nick and Tim!
