Stephanie Edgley is a fairly normal 12-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 uncle's 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:

Book Description: Meet Skulduggery Pleasant: Ace Detective, Snappy Dresser, Razor-tongued Wit, Crackerjack Sorcerer, and Walking, Talking, Fire-throwing Skeleton —as well as ally, protector, and mentor of Stephanie Edgley, a very unusual and darkly talented twelve-year-old.

These two alone must defeat an all-consuming ancient evil. The end of the world? Over his dead body.
