Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy

This was a fun read! Skulduggery Pleasant is not your ordinary detective. He throws fireballs and can cast spells. Oh, and he happens to be a skeleton who has been dead for a few hundred years.
When twelve-year-old Stephanie’s favorite uncle suddenly dies, she unexpectedly inherits his estate. It is at her uncle’s funeral that she first sees the odd detective (who is, of course, in disguise to hide the fact he is a skeleton).
There is a sequel to this book (the title is: Playing with fire). I just put a copy on hold.
Unshelved featured this book in one of the Sunday BookClubs.
