Death for Australia is in a bad way. After the failed purge in Death Most Definite, Steven finds himself in way over his head as the head of Mortmax Industries in Australia. He is drastically understaffed, a massive international conference is due in a few weeks, and an ancient zombie god is about to devastate the world. The last thing he needs is a disgruntled former employee trying to kill him. Being Death, it is hardly likely to cost him his life, but it may end up costing the love that has sustained him so far and the lives of his remaining friends. Managing Death is the second book in Jamieson's `Death Works' series, and it really picks up the pace from Death Most Definite. The story twists back and forth like a maddened snake. There is less time spent setting up the fantasy premise, which adds intensity to the plot, and after the story gets its hooks into you it doesn't let up until the end. With a final book still to come, many of the plot elements remain unresolved. However, there is enough resolution to close off the book. Now I just have to wait for book three.
