I just finished reading Three Of Diamonds. One reason I really liked this book was because all the mysteries that were solved in the book. On page 66 Nick found out the first solution to the mystery about Lenny smile and also managed to get Hoover and Fiona to get arrested. They were in Londons biggest ferris wheels when they solved the mystery. On pg.136 Madame Erica Nice was the mad American, he knew because her name. She was getting drugs moved to London to Paris.

The book Three of Diamonds by Anthony Horowitz is a book with three medium-length stories. It is a mystery book about Nick Diamond, and his inept older brother Tim, who happens to be a private detective. Nick lives with his brother because his parents decided to migrate to Australia. In “The Blurred Man”, the Diamonds are asked to investigate the death of the director of a charity. They are faced with many obstacles in the form of an angry Russian Circus and bitter Police detectives. In “The Fr ...more

This book was another intriguing book by Anthony Horowitz. I personally believe that the diamond brothers series does not get old. they have the same main characters but each book has a different criminal. Also the boo is very addicting for me. Just how he characters think and how sometimes the book can be confusing makes it a really good book. I think hat this book is best for children from ages 8-12 but i don't think that people above that age or below that age would enjoy the book.

1) I enjoyed the book Three of Diamonds because the author puts three stories in one. For example the Blurred Man. It is about how a made up man who makes money and gives it to children. Another story is the French Confection is when Nick and Tim win a vacation to Paris. They have to stop drug dealers. The last story is I Know What you did Last Wednesday is about how there is a class gather up and 7 people get killed by a jealous person.

2) You would like this book if you like good mysterys. I sa
Over this quarter I had read Three of Diamonds by Anthony Horowitz. I really liked this book because it was very suspenseful,puzzling and funny. This book is about two brothers that are private detectives and everybody wants to kill them. The first mystery is about this man that got killed by a steamroller named Lenny Smile. The second mystery is about when the brothers go France and they are sucked into another mystery about drugs. The third mystery is about a murderer that kills all of the old ...more

This book is a very adventurous book, however, it is not a book to read at night unless you love having garish nightmares.It follows two boys through there troubles.
Very smart and sarcastic everyone should read it
It has been a while (date was guessed)
I really liked the book because of the continuous mystery and adventure. I couldn't put the book down becuase it was so interesting. My favorite character is Nick Diamond because he is so clever and a wonderful young detective who I can relate to. He is a perfect example of a great mystery book detective. I would recogmend this book to anyone who likes adventure and mystery because it will keep you wanting to read more.

First time, I thought the story is about the three diamonds. However, there are three stories in one book. I got interested at the first time. The book was about the investigation by detective Tim Diamonds. I like detective story because I'm curious about what's going to happen and I have good imagination. I recommended this book to people who wants to increase their imagination and curiosity.^^
This book is three classic Horowitz stories in one book! The book portrays the adventures of the Diamond brothers with a mix of humor and mystery. Every Horowitz book lived up to my standards. I selected this book because of its complex storyline, powerful language and most of all, I really enjoyed its humor while retaining some mystery about murder or detective work.

I liked this book alot. It has 3 shorter stories instead of 1 long story. I have read the rest of the series, and this flowed together seamlessly. it put in details of the other stories, so it would help if you had read the others. but all in all, i think that this was a great book(s).

I thought this book was really good had some short stories that had good action and mystery like a teen James Bond. My favorite story had to be the last one because it all connected at the end and nothing left me hanging in any of the stories.
Three short stories in the spoofy style the Diamond Brothers have already established. The last one, "I Know What you Did Last Wednesday," is the most dead-on hilarious sendup of Christie's "And Then There Were None." Fantastic.
Not as funny as several of the full length Diamond Brothers novels, but these short stories are still enjoyable. They are especially funny to anyone who knows the mysteries that are being spoofed (maybe only adults?)
This book is the funniest book I have ever read. Tim Diamond, and his brother Nick, solve three mysteries in this book. Tim is older, but Nick ends up doing most of the work. This book is hilarious.

I think that this book was pretty good. Two of the short stories were exciting and full of suspense but the other one was kind of boring and uninteresting.
It's really good but, I Know What You Did Last Wednesday, has a LOT of murder in it so it's kinda creepy so if you get scared easily don't read that one.
This book was very interesting and humorous. I enjoyed reading this book. I would recommend this book to stronger readers. This book was long yet enjoyable.
this was a really good book even if the stories were short. i was never able to guess everything that happened! there were so many twists!!!!
This series just keeps reminding me of Case Closed, which is one of my absolute favorite anime/manga. I really liked the 3rd story in this set.

The last story was the best, a bit creepy but I liked it. The whole book was very nice, funny, clever and in the last story particularly thrilling :)
very good mystery book. full of action. Good series of books. It was well writen. ASll of the characters have feelings.
Really, really great book!! Good for people who love mytery and murder cases. 3 different myserious stories in one!
it was amazing. the last mystery tho, nearly scared me to death. (LOL get it, since it was about death)
This book has three stories. They are short but funny. One of them is about murder and it scared me a bit
Funny. Pretty good.
Shows that no matter how young you are you can always be clever.
