Life is tough at the top when work is a matter of life or death.
Read all three books in the darkly humorous and dangerously hip Death Works trilogy in this special omnibus edition.
Steven de Selby has a hangover. Bright lights, loud noises and exercise are the last things he wants. But that's exactly what he gets when someone starts shooting at him.
Steven is no stranger to Death - Mr D's his boss after all - but it's still a shock when he finds that his friends, family and colleagues have also been targeted. His job is to guide the restless dead to the underworld, but he didn't expect to find his loved ones among his 'clients'.
With Mr D missing and no one else in charge, the living are being hunted, the dead start rising and the whole city of Brisbane is headed for a regional apocalypse. Steven must shake his hangover, not fall for the dangerously attractive dead girl and find out just what's going on - or there'll be hell to pay.
