Publisher's Summary

Sandman Slim must save himself - and the entire world - from the wrath of some enraged and vengeful ancient gods in this sixth high-octane adventure in the New York Times best-selling series.
Being a half-human, half-angel nephilim with a bad rep and a worse attitude - not to mention temporarily playing Lucifer - James Stark, aka Sandman Slim, has made a few enemies. None, though, are as fearsome as the vindictive Angra Om Ya - the old gods. But their imminent invasion is only one of Stark’s problems right now. LA is descending into chaos, and a new evil - the Wildfire Ripper - is stalking the city.
No ordinary killer, The Ripper takes Stark deep into a conspiracy that stretches from Earth to Heaven and Hell. He’s also the only person alive who may know how to keep the world from going extinct. The trouble is, he's also Stark's worst enemy - the only man in existence Stark would enjoy killing twice.

Brilliant, As Kadrey always is

Let's put it this way: I will buy every single Sandman Slim novel in audio AND kindle that Richard Kadrey writes. Writing is excellent, the stories wonderfully imaginative, and lines so funny and/or thought provoking you actually have to stop and re-listen and ponder. Well edited and I have fallen in love with the Extremely Talented Mr. Andrews, as narrator.

Note to Mr. Kadrey - please, NEVER use a different narrator as MacLeod Andrews is perfect. Can't say perfect about too many things in this life.

Do Not End This Series!

What other compliments, accolades or glowing tributes can I bestow upon this author and the narrator? I love these books! Okay, this review is not fancy, but straight to the point.
I love the terrific writing, everything from the film and literary references to the deep and deliciously dark internal musings of Sandman Slim about the world and the universe. And the wonderful sarcastic humor!
I love the side characters, all the gods, demons, angels and especially his group of friends---all so inventive and unique.
I love the wonderful twist ending to this book.
I love, love MacLeod Andrews! Others have said it here perfectly---he IS Sandman Slim. His performance has made the character come alive.
I am so heartened to hear that there will be another book. YEAH!
