Artemis Fowl finds himself in trouble once again when he tries to make a business deal with a manipulative American business man, Spiro. Spiro steals Fowl's technology (which Fowl stole from the fairy community) and shoots his body guard, Butler. Fowl tricks the fairies into coming to help him out. Holly, a RECON elf, is dispatched to Fowl's location and ends up curing Butler and bringing him back to life.
However, this fairy technology cannot remain in Spiro's hands. Fowl, Butler, the fairies, and even Mulch Diggums come up with a plan to get this technology back.
This is book three in the Artemis Fowl series and doesn't disappoint. Infact, I think I enjoyed it more than the second book. It has some fun technology and entertaining exchanges between characters. Overall, an enjoyable book!
First Line: "Artemis Fowl was almost content."
