Summary

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. Nick’s not so sure he’ll make it to his fourteenth birthday!

Critic reviews

"Hilarious and intriguingly perceptive." ( The Times)
"Infectious ... any child with a sense of quick-fire humour is bound to warm to the bungling detective." ( BBC)
"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." ( School Library Journal)

Lots of fun and suspense

Hair raising adventures and plenty of corny one liners as Nick and his brother un mask the fence!
