SynopsisSkulduggery Pleasant 3: The Faceless Ones by Derek Landy
Third bone-breaking, belly-busting adventure in the series that puts the "funny" back in... um... funny series. That didn't really work, did it?

ReviewsPraise for Skulduggery Pleasant Hugely enjoyable - a thrill-a-minute adventure.
'It's exciting, pacy, nicely handled and fun. I sincerely hope Landy revisits these characters.'
Philip Ardagh, Guardian
'A gripping debut.'
Phil Hogan, Observer
'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 A remarkably accomplished debut with wonderful dialogue. Robert Dunbar, Irish Times
[Landy's] fight scenes are perfectly pitched. His characters are exceptionally well drawn and delightfully colourful... Reading [this book] is like riding a rollercoaster. Irish Independent Landy's witty style will win him fans of all ages... With writing of this standard, a rattling plot and definite potential for cross-over appeal, it's a good job Harry's [Potter] resigning before he's forcibly retired. Irish Mail on Sunday Humour and magic combine in this thrilling adventure. Waterstone's Books Quarterly ...people in the book world are raving about this book. Glasgow Herald It's pacy, it's funny, it's irreverent. The relationship between Skulduggery and Stephanie is tremendously strong. Stephanie is a splendid character - blunt, logical and outspoken... We enjoyed Skkulduggery Pleasant. Muchly. Roll on volume two! The Book Bag A rip-roaring adventure. Irish Sunday Independent Full of black humour, super powers, mysteries, murder and mayhem. Carousel
About The Author
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.
