As odd as it sounds, it ends them into a case about criminal organisations, a criminal mastermind dubbed the Fat Man, murders, and how barcodes work.I got this book as a gift from one of my nieces, and it ind of reminde me about what Maltesers had to do with detective work, and again I tarted reading it.

Not nly does it rovide you with questions that are only answered later on, but the comedy written in this book also entertains a lot, despite being small jokes, or just Tim 's idiocy.I learned through this ook that quick wit and careful thinking can get you through most things, such as a twisted case about riches from a criminal known best for imports and exports, with the key item being a box of Maltesers.To be honest, the most compelling character was Nick Diamond ...

A memoir, " The Falcon 's Maltesers " written by Anthony Horowitz is about two oys, in act, brothers, Tim and Nick Diamond receiving a box of maltesers, later finding themselves wanted by the nastiest and dangerous crooks in town.

Although Nick ’ s efforts to salvage his older brother ’ s desperat attempts at being a detective were always so quick witted, I did sometimes feel a little lost amidst the antics of the iblings and the deprecating commentary, rather than concentrating on the greater goings on within the crime industry.
