A bunch of stories linked by The Slab, a space slum fulll of all sorts of low-lifes, incudling werewolves, vampires and genetically modified people. A solid anthology of sorts, though I think it was a case where I'd prefer if I read them. That being said, the narrator amped up the gumshoe noir feel with an excellent performance. Close to 4.5/10.
Slab City Blues manages to bring the world of the strange into Sci-Fi that I can not help but love. Anthony Ryan has filled his universe with an array of larger than life characters and at the centre is Alex Mcleod. An ex-military man now earning a living on the orbital space station The Slab.
The five stories (one novel and 4 Novellas) see Alex chasing leads and calling in favours however he is a formidable force and his "Demon" status is more than earned by the end of the book.
The narration by Steven Brand fits perfectly with the gritty nature as he breathes life into the characters helping to wrap the project up perfectly.
