This book was excellent. I liked this book because so many mysterious things happen. I couldn't stop reading this book. My favorite part of the book is when they try to find out who the person in the black suit is at Russian carnival. Another good part is when people thought Lenny Smile is a really good guy, but he really is not. Lenny is a really rotten guy. Someone who likes mysteries would like this book. The person who reads this book will not want to put it down. Super good reading will be your if you read this book.

Three of Diamonds is a collection of three mystery novels: The Blurred Man, The French Confection, I Know What You Did Last Wednesday, starring the worst detectives ever, Tim and Nick Diamond. In the first novel a man named Lenny Smile was run over by a steamroller, and the Diamond brothers are soon hired to find out if he was murdered, or if he's not even dead! In the second novel, the Diamond brothers are on their vacation when a man gives them a packet of "sugar" and people start chasing them for the sugar. In the third novel, the Diamond brothers are invited to Crocodile Island with some friends. When their friends get murdered and the Diamond brothers investigate the island. This book has a good idea but confusing characters. What makes this book good is that the mystery starts out right at the beginning of the novels, and there is not a whole chapter describing the context. But because the detectives are careless and confusing, this great idea turns out to be a not so great book. In the second novel, The French Confection, the Diamond brothers are running away from some people. They are near a river when Nick says "The River!" and instead of Tim running with Nick to the river, he pulls a camera and starts taking pictures. Throughout the novels, Tim is getting words confused and stating the obvious. Overall, I would recommend this book. Reviewed by: James Awesomely

Three of diamonds By: Anthony Horowitz mystery In Three of Diamonds Nick and his brother Tim have not one, but several adventures (three to be exact). Nick is very annoyed because he wants to have a normal life but for some reason he¿s always running into trouble. In the first of the trio he tries to find out who killed a philanthropist (The blurred man). The second is about a vacation gone horribly wrong (the French confection). The third is about stopping a crazed second place murderer. Tim and his brother Nick are invited to a reunion that turns into a murderous disaster (I know what you did last Wednesday). I disliked the first and second one because they are boring because they were sort focused on one thing. But I like the last one because it was action-packed and creepy.

The book that I read was 'Three of a Diamond' book three I know What you did Last Wednesday by Anthony Horwitz. This book was outstanding and I recomend it to anyone who is looking for a good mystery. One of the things I liked about this book was how the author got right into the mystery in the begining of the book. I liked this because I do not like books that seem to take forever to get intresting. I also liked how the author used exelempary detail when explaining things in this book. For example, when the author described the first murder in this book he uses such great detail that I felt like I could picture th exact crime scene. Another thing I liked about this book was how the authorkeeps you in suspense during the book. Everybody has their suspicions on who's comiting these crimes and they each it's one of them. One of the things I disliked about the book was how the autor made the crime scenes very gorey.The author used such great detail that it sort of growses you out while reading. Another thing I don't like about the book was how the author used to many contrast emotions . For example, I thought that the author blatantly used humor thrughout the book where it was not needed. This book was outstanding with a climatic ending. I thinl it is worth a look for all book lovers!

This book was good. It really three books in one. The first two were great. But the last one was a little violent, and most definatlly not sutable for 8 or 9 year olds like it said on the back, but I enjoyed all three pretty well!
