Product Description

Review

“If Simon R. Green wrote an episode of Dog the Bounty Hunter, it would read much like Sandman Slim – violent, vivid, non-stop action of the supernatural kind. I couldn’t put it down.” (Charlaine Harris)

“Nicotine and octane in equal parts might come close to the high-energy buzz from Richard Kadrey’s Sandman Slim. Crisp world building, recognizable and fully-realized characters, and a refreshingly unique storytelling style make for an absorbing read.Sandman Slim is my kind of hero.” (Kim Harrison)

“The most hard-boiled piece of supernatural fiction I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. … all confident and energetic and fresh and angry. I loved this book and all its screwed-up people.” (Cory Doctorow, author of Little Brother)

“Paced like greased lightning (watch out for friction burns on your turning finger), blend the movie-ish delights of tough guy noir and such smart-mouthgore-fests as “Reanimator” and “Army of Darkness”, seasoned by soupcons of Gaimanian romanticism and Koontzian sentiment.” (Booklist)

“Sarcastic, irreverent and ridiculously enjoyable riff on the Urban Fantasy genre. … a lot like a mosh pit -- rough, exuberant, unpredictable -- and a heck of a lot of fun.” (Miami Herald)

“The best B movie I’ve read in at least twenty years. An addictively satisfying, deeply amusing, dirty-ass masterpiece, Sandman Slim swerves hell-bent through our culture’s impacted gridlock of genres…it’s like watching Sergio Leone and Clive Barker co-direct from a script by Jim Thompson and S. Clay Wilson.” (William Gibson)

From the Back Cover

Life sucks, then you die. Period.

Unless you're James Stark, a hitman in Hell for eleven years before escaping back up to Hell-on-earth L.A.—looking for revenge, absolution . . . love, maybe.

But Hell's not through with Stark.Heaven's not either.

I've become such a jaded reader over the past 5 years. I can't tell you how many books by well reviewed authors I've given up on. This book was fast paced, irreverent, bold and had a fresh plot that moved at break neck speed. Never a dull moment! It's an amazing romp! Many nights while reading it, I found myself falling asleep with it because I couldn't put it down, wanting to read just "one more page" before settling in to sleep.

Well written and fast moving, keeps you turning the pages. Way more action than sleuthing and the plot is pretty linear - tough guy gets some gadgets, goes after bad guys who wronged him. Finds them. Fights them using said gadgets. The end. No real "ah-ha" moments and because it's all magic based you just roll with events/developments a bit too easily. Nevertheless a fun read and I'll try the next one in the series.

I rented this from my library and loved it so much I decided to order it online. This book was a fantastic, dark, witty and you need a sense of humour for this book for sure! I've read 3 from the series and if you like the first book; this one.. then you'll love all the rest for sure!
