Sandman Slim returns in this stunning, high-octane ninth thriller in the series, filled with the intense, kick-ass action and inventive fantasy that are the hallmarks of New York Times bestselling author Richard Kadrey.
Sandman Slim has been to Heaven and Hell and many places in between, but now he finds himself in an unknown land: the far, far edge of the Tenebrae, the desolate home of the lost dead. Making his way inland with nothing but his unerring instinct for trouble to guide him, he collides with a caravan of the damned on a mysterious crusade, led by the ruthless Magistrate. Alone and with no clue how to get back home, he throws in with this brutal bunch made up of human souls, Hellion deserters, rogue angels—and Father Traven.
Slim didn’t land in Tenebrae by chance. His little stunt of trying to open Heaven has set off a tsunami across the universe. Now, the afterlife is falling apart because of the ensuing warfare. And when Heaven finds out Slim is close by, the angels put a fat bounty on his head.
It’s one thing to ride with a ferocious criminal pack across the treacherous plains—it’s another to do it when everyone in the land of the dead is itching to keep you there permanently. But Slim’s not too worried. He’s been fighting cosmic forces bent on destroying Heaven, Hell, Earth, and him 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 . . . one way or another.

The Kill Society (Sandman Slim #9) by Richard Kadrey is a book I won with the Goodreads Giveaway, hippie!!! I have been reading Sandman Slim novels since they came out. This is before I started reviewing, sorry. I have been too broke to buy #8 and this one. Now I just need to see if I can get #8. These books need to be read in order. This time, Sandman is in Hell, really dead this time. He has been there so many times but for a variety of reasons. Yep, he is that kinda guy! Fighting in the arenas, substitute Satan, yes, he is that bad ass!!! Visiting... why you ask? Don't ask, it isn't good for your health. He has stolen things from there, maybe people too, hard to remember all the times he has been there. He always finds a way out. But this time, he might really, really be dead. In this book, he stayed in parts of Hell the whole book! That is like a record or something! Of course he was the baddest ass down there except Death, who of course he talked with. Who else could do that? This book is full of full throttle action, battles, magic, angel vs angel kick butt fights, all kinds of explosions, you know, Sandman Slim kind of books! Never a dull moment book. If there is a page, something bad is happening. LOVE IT!!! Thanks for the book!!
