The Diamond Brothers are back again! When Nick refuses to help Snape on a *master* plan, he gets framed by him and thrown in jail, and has to play along anyways. The plan is that Nick, will become friends with Johnny Powers to work out who the *fence* is. Hilarious, action-packed, unpredictable with a funny ending, you won't be able to put this book down!

I love love love this book!!!!! But stop posting on here whole entire summaries the book. You know, some people might get annoyed at that when they have never read it before and are trying to decide whether to get it or not.

I love Anthony Horowitz's humor. This book is listed as reading for young readers, but I am an old reader and enjoyed it immensely. The way Nick Diamond solves crimes with (and without) the help of his dimwitted older brother is inspired. Do not read this book on a crowded bus because people will stare at you when you laugh.

Public Enemy Number Two The author of Public Enemy Number Two is a British author from London. Public Enemy Number Two is a great book. This book is real page turner. The genre of this book is action adventure. The characters in this novel are really great. The main characters name is Nick Diamond. He is a 13 year old boy and he is really intelligent, and he is really out going. Another character of this book is Tim Diamond. This is nick's older brother who is his last hope in this story, but Tim isn't very smart. One more character is Mr. Palis. This is Tim's French teacher who isn't very nice and he has bad breath twenty four seven. The setting in this book is set in modern day London. The setting really sets the mood in the book sometime. I thought the setting in this book was great; it set the mood form me when I read it. The setting isn't really that important to the story's outcome though, but it definitely sets the mood when you read it. This book has a life lesson to it. The author is trying to say life is only bad if you look at all of the negativity. Think positive and go out and have an adventure. Don't waste your life doing something you don't want to do, and take more risks and have a lot of fun doing it. You never know what lies around the corner. The book is about adventure and courage. The story line of this book is about a 13 year old who lives in modern day London. These two officers named Snape and Boil make him get into prison to find Johnny Powers a hardened criminal and interrogate him until he gives up the name of a modern day criminal known as the fence. He has connection all through out Europe. Even though he has a mission he still has to get out of jail and with his grandpa in the hospital and his stupid brother to be his only hope of getting out. He has a lot to worry about. I thought the book was an awesome action packed adventure. The book was really great. I loved the book for the characters. They were fantastic I have to give the author credit for that. The thing that I disliked is that it is kind of a mystery novel and I'm not a mystery kind of guy. The story was confusing at some parts but not many. It wasn't all that predictable as I thought it would be. The ending was very exciting and I loved it. I give this book four out of five stars.

I thought that this book was great. It was even better than the first one in the series(the falcons maltesters). You can hardly ever tell what is going to happen next. And just like the one before it there was a twist at the end that I would have never seen coming in a million years! Anthony Horowitz is a magician with words. Hope to see amny more books from him!!!

I Loved it! Nick's a smart-alecky, sarcastic, kid brother of Tim, the most idiotic person ever to walk on this planet. Nick's in jail for something he didn't do, (Thanks to TIM) and he's gotta get out. Whn he does, he's in mahor trouble. He's got save Tim's life, stop himself from getting blown up, escape an underwater hideout, and find out who The Fence is. Awesome!
