‘A fast evolving plot and a great mix of scariness and humour’ Sunday Express
‘Fast and funny.’ The Times
‘A magical mystery that grabs you from the first word and doesn’t let go, not even when you’re finished, and leaves you gasping for more like a fish out of water. Terrifyingly good!’ First News
Praise for Skulduggery:
'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

About the Author
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."--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

But give up, they don’t, and before long, a lead is found. A fifty year old murder proves to be that of a man with knowledge of the return of the Faceless Ones, and after a quick discussion of the matter with the victim, it is apparent that the current day murder spree is a twisted attempt by someone with the world’s best interests at heart to stop that from happening. Or is it? Old friends are still around to help, along with some comic relief from minor characters that are brought onto the stage for some cameo appearances. As I have already said, a lead is found and it appears the book’s anti-hero is known to have teleported recently into nightclubs, luxury hotels and the odd supermarket. This tells the alert reader he is still young enough to be interested in what happens to grown ups after dark, but that he is too young to learn the facts in the traditionally legitimate way. Is he, perchance, a potential partner for young Stephanie?
This book is easily the series’s highlight. Chapter four is pivotal to the story’s development, and the end of chapter five possesses easily the best (and funniest...) sentence of the series so far. The books are still funny, lively, action packed and full of such awesome characters that you find them seriously addictive. I am also glad to see that each book is part of a giant story arc, as opposed to a series of independent adventures featuring our two heroes.
This book is easily worth the five stars I have given it. The ending is emotional and shocking for all of the right (and wrong) reasons but books this good are way more than they appear. Lessons in life, love and loss are always painful, no matter at what age you come across them.
I have been in the habit lately of reading several books at once, but this act of literary sabotage doesn’t do anyone any justice. Least of all books by Derek Landy. They are *way* too good for that.
Give them the respect they deserve. I know I will be.

I won't say too much because I don't want to spoil it but basically Skulduggery and Valkyrie have to fight 'The Faceless Ones' in this book. If you've read the previous books then you'll know what I'm talking about and, by now, you'll be itching to get your hands on this book! It's quite dark in places I thought but recommended for those over the age 10 barrier.
Summary: The third book in this fantastic series which is highly recommended for Skulduggery fans!
