In Sandman Slim Stark came back from hell for revenge. In Kill the Dead he tackled both a zombie plague and being Lucifer’s bodyguard.
Once again all is not right in L.A. Lucifer is back in Heaven, God is on vacation, and an insane killer mounts a war against both Heaven and Hell. Stark’s got to head back down to his old stomping grounds in Hell to rescue his long lost love, stop an insane serial killer, prevent both Good and Evil from completely destroying each other, and stop the demonic Kissi from ruining the party for everyone. Even for Sandman Slim, that’s a tall order. And it’s only the beginning.

Get the first two books before you start this one: Sandman Slim is book1 and Kill the Dead book 2 and then also get Devil Said Bang - book 4 as you will want to dive right in after this one which is book 3. BTW: Kill City Blues - book 5 - is due out on 7-30-13. If you have ANY doubts about these, go over to amazon and read the reviews. Fantastic series and really well read too.
I love the Sandman Slim series - he's anything but PC and I love his sarcasism, wit and bloody response to the antagonists. MacLeod Andrews is the perfect voice for this book! He makes a some what laking story still very enjoyable again and again.
I waslooking for a new author, so based on the reviews of the book, i got Aloha from Hell.
I was pleasantly surprised and vastly entertained!
I particularly liked the "kick-ass" attitude of the characters, as well as the blurring of lines between good and evil (definitely refreshing!) and the moderate-to-fast pace of the dialogue.
Can't wait to get my hand on the next one in the series!
Tell us about yourself!Woof, woof woof ( I love audible, chasin and killin defenseless kittens and eatin em...yummy ). I luv dem thriller stories, and dream of J.D. Robb & yours truly doggy style, howl! Anyway, I is jus kiddin bout the kitties with peace, good health and lots of happy readin y'all!
Insanely Hell-acious dudes!...this ain't your preacher writin' this Shiite. And this definitely is positively Not your mama's version of Lucifer's digs.
Every town has a Mustang Sally, and for Sandman Slim all it takes is a trip to one of the countless mini-marts where he stocks up on greasy burgers, chips, candy, donuts and smokes, of course...for Sally is not only the queen of the roadways, she is also Slim's ticket into hell...cost?...the road marts treats, and Slim bitin it on a messy James Dean head on...ouch!
With a name like Sandman Slim, and burdened with an angel inside him, a roommate he has decapitated and a monster as a lover,hmmm...yeah it is definitely Mr. Slim.
Hey! Go to Hell...you just might like it.
I loved the first two books in this series, however this one dosent measure up. Characters are two dimensional and what was sharp cynical wit in the first two books, comes off as belligerent ranting in this book.
The narration and performance is very good making this disappointment more tolerable.
Oh, woe unto us who suffer through jumped sharks and nuclear fridges...
All the careful setup and delicately stacked cards that Richard Kadrey has placed went to hell with Sandman Slim in this last installment. Contradictions (I thought the Fallen were disarmed when the were cast down?), poor direction and editing errors make this almost as much of a disaster as the lazy depiction of Hell itself.
I wish I could get my Credit back...but I don't think there's a "Sucker" option in the Reason pulldown.
At least the narrator makes this all worth while.
That and one of the funniest one-liners I've heard in some long while.
Very disjoint. Characters were so changing I was lead to believe that the author didn't know where he was going with this story so the words spilled out onto the page without direction. I know it was fantasy, but come on.
