4.0 out of 5 stars A slow start and good finish, 14 Aug 2011
This review is from: Death Most Definite (Steven De Selby 1) (Paperback)
When Steven de Selby sees a dead girl in the Winter garden food court and somebody starts shooting at him he knows thing aren't quite right. It's not the fact that he's seeing dead people that causes the problem after all he's a Pomp, sending the dead to the afterworld for a living, it's the fact that she shouldn't be in the food court at all if the Pomps are doing their jobs. However, Steve is about to find out that he's not the only Pomp in danger as upper management gets into takeover mode.

I found this a slow book to get into, but it was redeemed int the second half of the story when Steve finds out much more about Death that he'd ever believed he'd know and at this stage I'm looking forward to reading book 2 in the series Managing Death: Bk. 2: A Steven De Selby Novel: A Death Works Novel (Steven De Selby 2). Though I understand book 3 The Business of Death: Bk. 3: A Steven De Selby Novel (Steven De Selby 3) is being released as part of an omnibus and not a single book in itself which is a bit annoying. For me this book has been an unusual read. It's urban fantasy set in Brisbane, Australia and that alone gives it a different flavour to the British and American urban fantasies I've read before. It'll be interesting to see how this series ends as it has a different slant on the business of death than I've read before.
