'Steven has a new job: Australia's Regional Death. On a good day he thinks it has a ring to it, but on a bad day (most of them) it's more of a toll.
He's recently averted a Regional Apocalypse, but that's only the beginning. With barely a month to go until the world's thirteen Deaths get together to talk, erm, death, a crisis is imminent: Stirrer attacks are on the rise as their dark god draws near; someone is trying to kill him; he's developed a drinking problem. And he has a conference to organise.
Steven must start managing Death before it starts managing him, or this time the Apocalypse will be more than regional.' (From the publisher's website.)
