POLICE SIREN WAILS OUTSIDE
The Diamond Brothers. What do we know about them?
They're two private detectives in this brilliant book,
-The Falcon's Malteser.
Tim is the older brother - pretty much the worst detective ever.
Lucky for him, he's got his kid brother for a partner, Nick.
Now, Nick is great, because he's smart,
he's brave and he really knows when trouble walks through the door.
Which it does, in the shape of this,
a package they were asked to look after.
-It sounds like a box of chocolates.
-It IS a box of chocolates.
And it also plunges Nick and Tim into a whole world of danger.
It turns out that those chocolates are worth £3.5 million.
Soon, the brothers are being pursued by some of the scariest villains
in the world, who all want to get hold of that package.
Like The Fat Man, the world's thinnest master criminal.
He gives them a deadline to hand it over -
and the key word here is "dead".
"I can wait all of 48 hours.
"But if I haven't heard from you in two days, I think you may wake up
"to find something very unpleasant has happened to you,
"like you no longer have any feet."
Soon, the owner of the chocolates is dead.
Tim's blamed and thrown in jail.
And Nick's left with a mystery to solve,
all the while being threatened by the police, by some heavies...
Oh, yeah, and don't forget, by a rich widow's alligator.
"The last time I saw an alligator, it was hanging on some
"rich woman's arm, with lipsticks and purses inside.
"But this one was no handbag.
"It was very alive, waddling out of the pool,
"its ugly, black eyes fixed on the plate of meat.
-The widow said.
-'He's very fond of strangers.'
'Yeah? Cooked or raw?' I asked."
He's attacked, knocked out, tied down and almost blown up.
Imagine how that must feel.
So, who is the Falcon? Why is this package worth so much money?
Is Nick going to stay alive long enough to figure it all out?
-Read the book.
-I'm talking to these guys.
So, read the book to find out all the answers.
And keep the secret to yourself.
You never know who might be listening.
