James Stark, a.k.a. Sandman Slim, crawled out of Hell, took bloody revenge for his girlfriend's murder, and saved the world along the way. After that, what do you do for an encore? You take a lousy job tracking down monsters for money. It's a depressing gig, but it pays for your beer and cigarettes. But in L.A., things can always get worse.

Like when Lucifer comes to town to supervise his movie biography and drafts Stark as his bodyguard. Sandman Slim has to swim with the human and inhuman sharks of L.A.'s underground power elite. That's before the murders start. And before he runs into the Czech porn star who isn't quite what she seems. Even before all those murdered people start coming back from the dead and join a zombie army that will change our world and Stark's forever.

Death bites. Life is worse. All things considered, Hell's not looking so bad.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James Giddings | 2/14/2014

    " I take it back... this is no trilogy... I think it's meant to be a quintology of noir fantasies with a hero who is one of the Nephilim. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daphne Durham | 2/6/2014

    " Not quite as good as Sandman Slim, but still has all the biting (literally) humor, dark magic, and great gory battles. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tyler Hayes | 1/15/2014

    " All my Sandman Slim reviews can be found on the third book in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jack | 1/6/2014

    " A bit more convoluted and less satisfying than Sandman Slim, but still fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric | 1/4/2014

    " This book, the second in the series by Richard Kadrey, was sadly not as good as the first. It dragged here and there, and is others was just a but too gratuitous even for the subject matter. While the first book was new and different, the second felt like more of the same and did not hold my attention like the first did. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betsy Phillips | 1/2/2014

    " This book is probably objectively terrible, but I really love it. It's funny and charming and scary and I am in awe of Kadrey's skill at pacing things. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 1/1/2014

    " Just as inventive, violent, delightful, and action-packed as "Sandman Slim." It's urban supernatural done right, with a hard-edged, sarcastic bite. Loved it, can't wait for part three. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 L.M. David | 1/1/2014

    " While not as great as the first book, this one still had its moments. My peeves was Lucifer. How could he be portrayed as such a wimp? That he now wants out of hell to get back into heaven and be forgiven. This book seemed less thought out as with Kadney's first book and I had begun to think Stark's father was Lucifer. This book does continue with the same originality as the other one but, again, not as concise as Sandman Slim. This time Stark is helping protect Lucifer while he is on earth and running into all sorts of problems. It had great moments but not as noteworthy as before. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalia | 12/30/2013

    " I really love the Sandman Slim books. I found myself slowly reading this book just to draw out the adrenaline high it gave me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scot | 12/21/2013

    " Chugging down this series. Great LA Noir with a metaphysical twist. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 12/18/2013

    " Love, love, LOVED it! Can hardly wait for ALOHA FROM HELL! When does it come out? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 11/14/2013

    " These are fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda Steinhoff | 11/7/2013

    " A fun, easy book to read. Lots of sexy supernatural babes and cool gross monster fight scenes. This book is not weighty or overly cerebral, so if you're looking for that, you'll be disappointed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard Bellingham | 11/3/2013

    " Another fun romp with Sandman Slim. The mythology reminds me of Mike Carey's Lucifer but there are enough original twists on it that it feels fresh. Stark continues to evolve as a character and his relationships with the characters who appear can go in some surprising directions. Recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Travis | 10/3/2013

    " A worthy sequel. Both of the Sandman books provided quite the needed slice of gory escapism while I was deployed to Afghanistan. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Todd | 8/4/2013

    " Not as good as the first book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 7/17/2013

    " This book is brilliant - if you like pulp horror novels about LA and don't mind lots of violence. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ben | 10/28/2012

    " Another excellent Sandman Slim story. Not quite as great as the first, but I still loved it. Looking forward to "Aloha from Hell". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Grant | 5/21/2012

    " Very interesting premise: a guy who escapes from Hell (the real one, not Barstow) is asked to be a bodyguard for Lucifer as he comes to Hollywood to help produce a blockbuster biopic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Greg T Robertson | 4/2/2012

    " The second in the Sandman series did not disappoint by giving another fantasy hard boiled action book book. The humor matches the last book as well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Luke | 2/29/2012

    " Bruce Willis meets Constantine. Glib and funny. Looking forward to book 3. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gianna Pratten | 2/3/2012

    " More crazy silliness. Can't wait to start the third one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nick Tomashot | 12/18/2011

    " Solid -- just good enough that I'll try the third in the series... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Theresa Bolen | 10/8/2011

    " I love Kadrey's irreverent-tough style. I've never run across anything quite like it - and I'm hooked. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 5/9/2011

    " Just as awesome as the first one. Reads real quickly though. I found myself up late at night unable to put it down, which is good. The only bad thing is I then found myself at the end wanting more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 George | 5/4/2011

    " Stark is back, and he's fighting zombies, angry angels and on top of it all, he's got to guard Lucifer and be his escort around L.A. Another great title from the fertile mind of Richard Kadrey. I heartily endorse this one:) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 4/20/2011

    " Really liking this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stefan | 3/31/2011

    " Not as good as the original, but still a fun read. This time with zombies! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steele | 3/26/2011

    " any author that can make me appreciate a book about zombies is, indeed, a jewel! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalia | 3/21/2011

    " I really love the Sandman Slim books. I found myself slowly reading this book just to draw out the adrenaline high it gave me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Travis | 3/14/2011

    " A worthy sequel. Both of the Sandman books provided quite the needed slice of gory escapism while I was deployed to Afghanistan. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric | 3/11/2011

    " A fun read. Pulpy, kinetic, snarky, paranormal noir. Sam Spade meets The Prophecy. Maybe not quite as good as the first one, but still a fun change of pace. Very quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Destructo | 3/2/2011

    " Not quite as good as Sandman Slim, but still entertaining. If there is a third book in the trilogy, its plot is going to be absolutely insane. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nilchance | 2/28/2011

    " I'd give this a higher rating, what with my love for Stark (like Anthony Bourdain on a No Reservations trip to hell), but the ending fell so flat for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kris | 2/27/2011

    " Very good book but, not as good as the first. Still can wait to read the next one. "
