Following the previous title, BLOOD RIVER in this science fiction series, an elaborate plot now sees Steve joining Cadillac to destroy the strongest Mute clan.
Meet Skulduggery Pleasant: detective, sorcerer, warrior. Oh yes. And dead.
Hundreds of years after civilisation has been destroyed by nuclear war, the Earth is divided between the Trackers of the Amtrak Federation – a community living in vast subterranean cities – and the Mutes, who have evolved to withstand the radiation that has driven their foes underground. A long war for possession of the overground has killed and enslaved many of the Mutes, leaving only the Plainfolk to resist the Federation. And now the Iron Masters – a powerful people living in the traditions of the Samurai – have joined the struggle for dominance. Steve Brickman, Tracker agent for the Amtrak Federation, and blood brother to the Mute clan M'Call, is struggling to maintain his double life. After evading the Iron Masters, Brickman's love – Mute summoner Clearwater – has finally been captured by the Federation. As she lays fighting for her life, Brickman must keep up the pretence of his disinterest in front of his Federation handlers. Pretending to orchestrate a plan to capture Cadillac and Mr Snow, who intimidate the Federation with their strong Mute earth-magic, Steve finds it increasingly difficult to outwit his Tracker comrades. Only Roz – his powerfully psychic kin-sister – knows of Brickman's predicament. Together they must work tirelessly under a false loyalty to the Federation. They must prepare themselves, for a great battle is coming, one which will test the Plainfolk magic to its limit, and prove Brickman worthy of the name 'Death Bringer.' As both the Federation and the Iron Masters plot revenge, all players will soon come under the power of the Talisman Prophesy. Death Bringer, first published in 1989, is the fifth instalment of Patrick Tilley's internationally best selling science fiction epic, The Amtrak Wars Saga.

MAXIMUS WORMIUS: THE DESTROYER OF DEATH!
A big surprise at the Elven Kingdom holds new challenges for Marin. Favian has a brother she never knew about and he looks exactly like Favian! Her goal of becoming a protector and of finding her true father will be determined, but is she ready for these next chapters in her life? How can she protect those she loves when she constantly puts them in harm's way? All will be answered in the second installment of The Little Death Bringer Series.
PJ Carpenter senses something odd in the rhythm of the terror world. For weeks, the veteran CIA paramilitary officer has been raising alarms that al Qaeda is up to something. The terror group has been unusually quiet. More troubling is the fact that its most lethal commander, a man known only as Mumeet-the Bringer of Death-has gone completely off the radar. But by the time US intelligence realizes that Carpenter's instincts are on the mark, it may be too late. Pressured into action by its recently-named new leader, al Qaeda is already well on its way to a dramatic return to jihad operations. And Carpenter's nemesis Mumeet will lead the first attack under the new strategy; one that will strike at the heart of the US homeland and two paragons of American culture. With little else to go on, Carpenter is sent to Cairo to hunt down two mysterious men. As he travels from Egypt and on to South America gathering bits of intelligence, it becomes clear he is chasing Mumeet, and the terrorist is already inside the United States. Now Carpenter and the US government are running out of time to uncover the plot and stop the Bringer of Death before he unleashes the most devastating attacks on US soil since 2001.
