Meet Skulduggery Pleasant: detective, sorcerer, warrior.Oh yeah. And dead.Skulduggery Pleasant and Valkyrie Cain are back - just in time to see their whole world get turned upside down.With Valkyrie struggling to protect her dark secret, Skulduggery and the gang are more vulnerable than ever, just as a plague of body-snatching Remnants are released upon the world.
Derek Landy lives near Dublin. Before writing his children's story about a sharply-dressed skeleton detective, he wrote the screenplays for a zombie movie and a murderous horror film. "I think my career-guidance teacher is spinning in her grave," he says, "or she would be if she were dead."

Jonathan Stroud, author of the BARTIMAEUS TRILOGY'It's exciting, pacy, nicely handled and fun. I sincerely hope Landy revisits these characters.'
