Stephanie Edgley is a fairly normal twelve-year-old girl living a fairly normal life. Until her uncle Gordon dies. Gordon was not a normal man, he was an author. Specifically, an author of scary supernatural mysteries. He lived by himself and died alone, seven words into the last chapter of his new novel. And now the family has to come to grips with his passing, especially Stephanie who, for reasons unknown, has been named as a beneficiary in her uncles will. And it's at the reading of said will where Stephanie meets the man named Skullduggery Pleasant. Her life will never be normal again.

From official release/information:

From publicity material: Skulduggery is back from the dead, and with the help of Stephanie Edgely, a very unusual and darkly talented twelve-year-old girl, he must dfeat an all-consuming evil. As they fend off minions of vampires and the undead, Skulduggery and Stephanie keep up a spirited, witty banter worthy of the best classic screwball comedies. (Ages: 8-12)
