Steven de Selby’s job is never boring but oh, if only it were! In Death Most Definite Jamieson introduced us to Steven de Selby, whose family was in the business of death. Simply put, his job as ‘Pomp’ was to send spirits on to their next destination. In Managing Death, book two in the wryly funny - if rather unusual - Death Works series, Steven finds himself trying to organise an upcoming Death conference while stirrers, devourers of all living things, are rising. As if that isn’t enough to be getting on with he’s still trying to come to grips with a new job and a new relationship.

The angle of death as a business is slyly humorous and very well done and if you’re looking for a book that offers something a little different – quirky, black humour – then look no further. Managing Death is a solid follow up to Death Most Definite and I can’t wait for the next title to be released!
