Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 5-8

Tim Diamond, a clueless London private detective, and his intelligent 14-year-old brother, Nick, are down on their luck again. Surprisingly, they receive a job just before Christmas to protect a gorgeous Greek celebrity singer named Minerva from recent death threats. Turns out, she is a coldhearted beauty who only cares about two things-money and Minerva. When shots are fired and a body is found strangled, all kinds of trouble ensues between Minerva, her aging husband, her manager, the Diamond Brothers, and the police. There are a few suggestive references to Minerva's appearance and "her silver-plated breasts" but nothing more racy or graphic. The witty banter between the characters keeps this short novel moving at breakneck speed. Tim's literal misinterpretations of everything are absurdly funny, and Nick's skill at solving the crime before anyone else, including the police, is entertaining. Horowitz is a master of tongue-in-cheek wit and groan-worthy puns that both sophisticated young mystery readers and older fans will enjoy.-Madeline J. Bryant, Los Angeles Public Library

    The Greek and the Detective

    This was an... Interesting read. It's pretty short (about 60 pages), and the humor isn't topnotch, but the plot was good enough to keep me going. Definitely gonna read the Australian adventure if it ever comes out.
