And the third (and to date, last) volume.

In volume two, Artemis Fowl had rescued his father from the Mafiya. Now, his father has forsworn crime, and it seem that Fowl must also do so. But he decides that he will reform only so far as to extort money from the criminal, and in this case, he decides to attempt some technological blackmail of American business billionaire Jon Spiro. He demonstrates a gadget based on Faery technology, and offers not to market it in return for his usual tonne of gold.

Unfortunately, Spiro is even more ruthless, and shooting up a London restaurant, seizes the gadget. Fowl's bodyguard is also very badly injured in the firefight.

And the gadget also turns out to have the ability to detect the Faery world, which is going to be catastrophic if Spiro discovers it.

So Holly Short and Artemis Fowl again team up, this time to recover the gadget before Spiro can break the encryption and discover how it works.

Again, this is another fast-paced adventure, with the usual multiple levels of out-thinking going on. It's still fun, and the only disappointment is that there are no more volumes yet. I want more Fowl!
