Review:

Praise for Derek Landy:

‘Landy [has the] ability to craft an engaging story from start to finish.’ Inis

‘Derek Landy has been something of a publishing phenomenon.’ Irish Post

Praise for Skulduggery:

'A gripping debut.' Phil Hogan, Observer

‘Landy's witty style will win him fans of all ages ... It's a good job Harry's [Potter] resigning before he's forcibly retired.’ Irish Mail on Sunday

'Hugely enjoyable – a thrill-a-minute adventure.' Jonathan Stroud, author of the BARTIMAEUS TRILOGY

'It's exciting, pacy, nicely handled and fun. I sincerely hope Landy revisits these characters.' Philip Ardagh, Guardian

'Skulduggery Pleasant serves up a thoroughly satisfying blend of humour, magic and adventure. Once you've met Stephanie and Skullduggery, you'll be clamouring for a sequel.' Rick Riordan, author of the PERCY JACKSON series

‘A remarkably accomplished debut with wonderful dialogue.’ Robert Dunbar, Irish Times

‘A rip-roaring adventure.’ Irish Sunday Independent

Book Description:

And he’s the good guy

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Meet the great Skulduggery Pleasant: wise-cracking detective, powerful magician, master of dirty tricks and burglary (in the name of the greater good, of course). Oh yeah. And dead. Then there s his sidekick, Stephanie. She s. well, she s a twelve-year-old girl. With a pair like this on the case, evil had better watch out. So you won t keep anything from me again? He put his hand to his chest. Cross my heart and hope to die. Okay then. Though you don t actually have a heart, she said. I know. And technically, you ve already died. I know that too. Just so we re clear. Stephanie s uncle Gordon is a writer of horror fiction. But when he dies and leaves her his estate, Stephanie learns that while he may have written horror, it certainly wasn t fiction. Pursued by evil forces intent on recovering a mysterious key, Stephanie finds help from an unusual source - the wisecracking skeleton of a dead wizard. When all hell breaks loose, it s lucky for Skulduggery that he s already dead. Though he s about to discover that being a skeleton doesn t stop you from being tortured, if the torturer is determined enough. And if there s anything Skulduggery hates, it s torture. Will evil win the day? Will Stephanie and Skulduggery stop bickering long enough to stop it? One thing s for sure: evil won t know what s hit it. Seller Inventory # AA89780007241620
