Product Description

Like horror? Like thrills? Like hunting down evil supernatural baddies? Leap into action with Skulduggery Pleasant, the wise-cracking dead detective! Stephanie’s Uncle Gordon wrote horror fiction. But when he dies, Stephanie finds that though his books may have been horror, they weren’t exactly fiction! Pursued by evil forces intent on recovering a mysterious key, Stephanie finds herself facing hordes of vampires, demons and über-bad baddies. As all hell breaks loose, can the sleuthing skeleton of a dead magician save Stephanie’s skin? Crackling with lightning-sharp wit and bone-crunching action, this is one horror series you’d be dead crazy to miss!

Derek Landy is the author of the bestselling, awardwinning Skulduggery books – the funniest dead detective ever!

Before writing his children’s story about a sharply-dressed skeleton detective, Derek wrote the screenplays for a zombie movie and a murderous thriller in which everybody dies.

As a black belt in Kenpo Karate he has taught countless children how to defend themselves, in the hopes of building his own private munchkin army. He firmly believes that they await his call to strike against his enemies (he doesn’t actually have any enemies, but he’s assuming they’ll show up, sooner or later).

Derek lives on the outskirts of Dublin, and the reason he writes his own biography blurb is so that he can finally refer to himself in the third person without looking pompous or insane.
