Overview

Sandman Slim investigates Death’s death in this hip, propulsive urban fantasy through a phantasmagoric LA rife with murder, mayhem, and magic.

James Stark has met his share of demons and angels, on earth and beyond. Now, he’s come face to face with the one entity few care to meet: Death.

Someone has tried to kill Death—ripping the heart right out of him—or rather the body he’s inhabiting. Death needs Sandman Slim’s help: he believes anyone who can beat Lucifer and the old gods at their own game is the only one who can solve his murder.

Stark follows a sordid trail deep into LA’s subterranean world, from vampire-infested nightclubs to talent agencies specializing in mad ghosts, from Weimar Republic mystical societies to sleazy supernatural underground fight and sex clubs. Along the way he meets a mysterious girl—distinguished by a pair of graveyard eyes—as badass as Slim: she happens to be the only person who ever outwitted Death. But escaping her demise has had dire consequences for the rest of the world . . . and a few others.

For years, Slim has been fighting cosmic forces bent on destroying Heaven, Hell, and Earth. This time, the battle is right here on the gritty streets of the City of Angels, where a very clever, very ballsy killer lies in wait.

Stark is always a man on a mission. Even when he doesn't know it. Love the characters and the writing. Witty, dark, funny, and captivating.

Killing Pretty is another strange but wonderful novel of Sandman Slim. This time he has to find out who put Death in a human body and trapped him there, killed him and left. Fortunately, the magic dagger was pulled out and Death came to Stark for help. Where else? Of course there are monsters, angels, wizards, his humorous dialogue that is worth the price of the book alone, and all the action and trouble he and his friends get into. Love every one of his books! How can you not love a guy that has been a substitute for the Devil in Hell, has helped God out, saved the world a few times, has a friend that is only a head with mechanical parts, and his girlfriend isn't even human? Oh, and he is only half human and the other half is angel. Kadrey can't write books fast enough for his fans. Thanks for another great book!

Cheesy Headline, I know. Couldn't resist. A great addition to the series of books that I've come to love. The week prior to the release of the last several novels in the series have filled with as much excitement and anticipation as a child counting the days until Christmas. Sadly, I'm just as equally sad once I've reached the end of each novel because now I must start the long wait until the next one all over again.
