Steve knew something was wrong as soon as he saw the dead girl in the Wintergarden food court. Nothing new - he saw dead people all the time - but this one was about to save his life . . . Steve is a necromancer in the family firm, tasked with easing spirits from this dimension to the next after death. And he's kind of OK with that, until someone high up the corporate hierarchy makes a bid to be Australia's new Regional Death. This means killing all of the current Death's staff. After his parents, relatives and pretty much every other necromancer he ever knew has been killed, Steve is left to make a reluctant stand. But to do this he must stay alive. Threatened at every turn, Steve and the perilously attractive (and dead) Lissa go on the run to save what's left of their world.

Trent Jamieson is a writer and editor and has published over 70 short stories, two of which have won prestigious Aurealis Awards. He also teaches creative writing, and has recently taught on the highly regarded Clarion South programme, the professional development course for genre writers.From Publishers Weekly:
Jamieson's debut urban fantasy puts an interesting bureaucratic spin on the afterlife. Recently divorced, Steven de Selby joins the family business, Mortmax, and becomes a "Pomp" who sends dead souls on to their final destination. Then a mysterious entity kills everyone in the Sydney and Melbourne offices of Mortmax, and the beautiful ghost of one of Steven's colleagues warns him that he and the other Brisbane Pomps are next. Not cut out to be a detective or fighter, Steven must dodge the killer while grieving for his murdered family members, handling their workload, fighting off zombie-like Stirrers wearing their bodies, and figuring out who's left that he can trust. Major plot developments are more archetypal than surprising, but they pack no less a wallop for being predictable, and the ending is satisfying while leaving room for further adventures.
