The third outrageous adventure of Valkyrie Cain and her snappy sidekick—Skulduggery Pleasant.
As skeleton detective Skulduggery Pleasant and Valkryie Cain (aka fourteen-year-old Stephanie Edgley) attempt to solve a rash of murders, a trusted friend has a vision that the apocalypse is on its way and the Faceless Ones will return—all by Friday!
Derek Landy's trademark snappy wit and unforgettable characters come alive once again in the third book of the immensely popular Skulduggery Pleasant series—a volume that readers won't be able to put down.
Derek Landy lives near Dublin, Ireland. Before writing his children's story about a sharply dressed skeleton detective, he wrote the screenplays for a zombie movie and a slasher 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).
The reason Derek writes his own biographical blurb is so that he can finally refer to himself in the third person without looking pompous or insane.
