Publisher's Summary

When the hard-up Diamond brothers, Tim and Nick, win a weekend for two in Paris, it looks as if their luck is taking a turn for the better. But looks can be deceptive. There's a nasty smell in the air and it's not the cheese. If Nick and Tim aren't careful, their dream holiday could end up being a nightmare from which they'll never wake up.

©2003 Anthony Horowitz (P)2014 Audible, Inc.

Should have been free

I love Horowitz, his writing is smart and tight, and he can trace the lines of the masters, as well as write great original material.

This short story attempts to be droll and ironic, however, falls short with what I call “dad” jokes.

It passed the time as background noise.

Funny and entertaining

The versatile Horowitz has created a funny set of characters in light hearted crime capers which will amuse you and make you chuckle. Simple, often childish humour fits easily into each story, and the characters are comic book and daft. Delightful.
