Meet the Diamond Brothers, the world's worst private-detective agency, in this Chandler-esque spoof from the creator of the Alex Rider series.

Wisecracking young Nick Diamond finds himself sharing a prison cell with Johnny Powers, Public Enemy No.1. His only chance of rescuing the situation is to nail master criminal the Fence. But first, Nick has to get out of jail…

  • The Diamond Brothers' exposure is at an all-time high with brand-new covers for the entire series.
  • Also in the Diamond Brothers series, the four-story adventure, Four of Diamonds; South by South East and The Falcon's Malteser.
  • "Hilarious and intriguingly perceptive." - The Times
