A hilarious new story about the world’s worst detectives, by the bestselling author of the Alex Rider series, Anthony Horowitz.

Private investigators Tim and Nick Diamond haven’t had a case for three months and are down to their last cornflake. So when a glamorous woman comes into their office offering them a pile of cash to find her missing father, they think Christmas has come – only it turns out they are the turkeys! Before they know it, they are caught up in a case involving bike-riding hitmen, superhackers and a sinister far right organisation, the White Crusaders.

The Diamond Brothers are in the soup and in it over their heads. With thrills and spills, and jokes on every page, this new Diamond Brothers novel will have young readers howling with laughter.

Review by Stacey

Where Seagulls Dare is the latest book in the Diamond Brothers Private Detectives series from author Anthony Horowitz. In this latest edition, the Diamond brothers are on the case of a missing man – Alistair Nightingale who has been reported missing to them by his supposed daughter, Jane Nightingale.

It’s not long though before the brothers are in serious danger and being warned to walk away from the case, but the brothers don’t give up that easily. Or more is the case that they have already spent most of the money they have been paid to find Alistair.

This is the first book in the series I have read but it worked fine as a standalone. It is full of humour, quips, one-liners, and silly moments, as well as action, adventure, and mystery.

The storyline is perfect for middle-graders and with all the proceeds going to charity what is there not to love about this book. It was a story planned in lockdown to give children some light relief and fun and it certainly does just that.

Overall, a fab book that I can see being a massive hit with its readers.
