  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2008 November #1
    Canny young private detective Nick Diamond and his hilariously clueless older brother, Tim, stumble their way through another slapstick caper—this time protecting a gorgeous but self-absorbed international pop star from an anonymous killer. In London to make appearances at various Christmastime events and to promote her new single, the dazzling Minerva (blond hair, green eyes, "lips that looked like they could suck in a horse") has received a pair of cryptic death threats. The Diamond brothers spring into action, which generally means winding up flat on their faces or in the clutches of brutish police officers Snape and Boyle. There is a murder, but it s offstage, and ultimately, they pull off a climactic rescue amid the holiday chaos at Harrods and nab a bad Santa. The riffs on renowned crime novels and films lie thinner on the ground here than in previous episodes, but this, too, will be perfect for Chet Gecko graduates. Copyright Booklist Reviews 2008.
