From the # 1 New York Times bestselling author of the Alex Rider series
Thirteen-year-old Nick Diamond is in prison! Framed for a jewel heist, quick-thinking Nick finds himself sharing a cell with public enemy number one: Johnny Powers. Nick’s only chance of clearing his name is to nail the Fence, the country’s master criminal. But to do that, he needs to break out—which is where his bumbling older brother, Tim, comes in.

        October 1, 2004
        Gr 5-8 -In this second book in the series, 13-year-old Nick Diamond refuses to be enlisted in Chief Inspector Snape's plan to make him the undercover cellmate of the notorious Johnny Powers in order to worm out the name of the Fence, the 15-year-old's partner in crime. But when Nick is mysteriously caught with a famous jewel in his pocket during a class field trip and he is arrested, tried, and sent to Strangeday Hall for young offenders with great expediency, it becomes clear to him that the Scotland Yard inspector wouldn't take no for an answer. Nick soon finds himself fleeing prison with Johnny and sneaking around London's underground to save himself (and his hapless brother, Tim). Horowitz has a knack for puns and humor, and he successfully combines it with a nonstop action mystery that has everything from hydraulically controlled buses to secret caverns. A readable and exciting adventure.-Lynn Evarts, Sauk Prairie High School, Prairie du Sac, WI

        January 1, 2005
        An inept and cowardly former police officer opens a detective agency, but it's his thirteen-year-old brother who ends up catching most of the bad guys. In these overbusy comic mysteries, the siblings guard a strange package containing malted milk balls and track down the head of a major fencing operation. The plots are over-the-top, and the glib dialogue often strains for humor.
