Death's having a mid-eternity crisis.
He's trying to work out what to do with the rest of his life and eating as much takeaway food as he can when a mysterious new candidate for the position of Grim Reaper turns up at his door. As Death teaches them the tricks of the trade, Dave starts to wonder what that means for him.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the city, Detective Sam Graves is investigating what happened to Conrad West and UberSystems Tower. With the help of Anne, he's looking for wayward skyscrapers, chasing trains that travel in extra dimensions, and dealing with more quantum physics than he thought would be necessary when he joined the Met. But that's modern policing for you.
It's just another everyday story about incompetent demons, government conspiracies and kebabs.
