Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for THE FALCON'S MALTESER by Anthony Horowitz.

"Thirteen-year-old Nick is the younger (and brighter) half of the Diamond Brothers, the world's worst detective agency. Dwarf Johnny Naples becomes their client, entrusting the two with a mysterious package (a box of Malteser chocolates) just before he is killed, leaving Tim Diamond, literally, holding the gun. With Tim in jail, Nick is forced to solve the case - hopefully before someone murders him, too. Originally published in Britain (where it was also released in film and television versions), this pays homage to the "hard-boiled-detective-with-a-snappy-comeback"­­ genre and to The Maltese Falcon book and film that the title spoofs. Horowitz's classic cast of quirky villains - including The Fat Man, Gott and Himmel, Beatrice von Falkenberg, and the Professor - and nonstop action and clever, deadpan humour ensure the novel will be a popular choice."
