Ninth in the high-octane Sandman Slim series, The Kill Society has the kick-ass action and inventive fantasy that are the hallmarks of New York Times bestselling author Richard Kadrey.
Sandman Slim has reached the far edge of Tenebrae: the desolate home of the lost dead. Alone and with no clue how to get back home, he collides with a caravan of the damned, led by the ruthless Magistrate.
Slim didn’t land in Tenebrae by chance. When he tried to open Heaven, he sent a tsunami across the universe and now the afterlife is falling apart. The angels know Slim is close by, and they have put a tempting bounty on his head.
It’s one thing to ride with a ferocious criminal gang across the land of the dead – it’s quite another to do it while everyone is trying to make sure you stay there. But Slim’s not too worried. He’s been fighting cosmic forces hell-bent on destruction for years. A pack of vicious bounty hunters, vengeful angels, and dangerous enemies with friendly smiles isn’t going to stop him fixing the chaos he’s caused…
Praise for Sandman Slim:
“The best B movie I’ve read in at least twenty years. An addictively satisfying, deeply amusing, dirty-ass masterpiece, Sandman Slim swerves hell-bent through our culture’s impacted gridlock of genres…it’s like watching Sergio Leone and Clive Barker co-direct from a script by Jim Thompson and S. Clay Wilson.” William Gibson
“If Simon R. Green wrote an episode of Dog the Bounty Hunter, it would read much like Sandman Slim – violent, vivid, non-stop action of the supernatural kind. I couldn’t put it down.” Charlaine Harris
