Derek Landy könyvei a rukkolán


Derek Landy - Az ​ősök jogara
Végre ​itt van Skrupulus Fondor! Lehet, hogy a fickó néha elveszti a fejét (amit egyébként egy pókerpartin nyert), de akkor is több, mint aminek tűnik - ami jó hír, tekintve, hogy egy csontváz! Bár Skrupulus több száz éve halott, mégis nehéz lenne hozzá hasonlóan éles eszű, szellemes és hatékony nyomozót találni - márpedig ha egy ősi gonosz lény fenyegeti a világot, akkor minimum egy ilyen különleges hősre van szükség! Ehhez viszont kell Stephanie is, aki nem retten vissza attól sem, ha be kell törnie éjjel a múzeumba, vagy ha fegyvert kell fognia. Hogy ilyen furcsa páros nem képes megmenteni az emberiséget? Ó dehogynem! Ahogy Skrupulus mondaná: senki nem veheti át a világuralmat, maximum a holttestén keresztül!
