Synopsis:
Life sucks, and then you die. Or, if you’re James Stark, you spend eleven years in Hell as a hitman before finally escaping, only to land back in the hell-on-earth that is Los Angeles. Now Stark’s back, and ready for revenge. And absolution, and maybe even love. But when his first stop saddles him with an abusive talking head, Stark discovers that the road to absolution and revenge is much longer than you’d expect, and both Heaven and Hell have their own ideas for his future. Resurrection sucks. Saving the world is worse. Darkly twisted, irreverent, and completely hilarious, Sandman Slim is the breakthrough novel by an acclaimed author.

Review:

Supernatural fantasy has a new antihero

Life sucks and then you die. Or, if you're James Stark, you spend eleven years in Hell as a hitman before finally escaping, only to land back in the hell-on-earth that is Los Angeles.

Now Stark's back, and ready for revenge. And absolution, and maybe even love. But when his first stop saddles him with an abusive talking head, Stark discovers that the road to absolution and revenge is much longer than you'd expect, and both Heaven and Hell have their own ideas for his future.

Resurrection sucks. Saving the world is worse.

From the Back Cover

Review:
James Stark, magician and antihero of sorts, returns to the human realm after 11 years in hell--literally, not metaphorically. He returns as a "flesh and bone, armor-plated Dirty Harry" hit man who seeks revenge against the six people responsible for his entrapment there. MacLeod Andrews's performance infuses subtle energy into this urban fantasy, which is full of black magic and black humor. His crisp pronunciation and swaggering tone perfectly capture the noir tone of the novel. Andrews flawlessly shifts between various accents (he plays a 200-year-old Frenchman, for example) and character personas--from petty criminals and crime bosses to supernatural beings. The combination of Andrews's vocals and Kadrey's storytelling skills should satisfy and amuse. A.L.B. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
