A smart, kick-arse Urban Fantasy from a new master of the genre. Kill City Blues is the fifth book in the fantastic Sandman Slim series. James Stark, aka Sandman Slim, has managed to get out of Hell - again - renounce his title as the new Lucifer, and settle back into life in LA. But he's not out of trouble yet. Somewhere along the way he misplaced a weapon from the banished older gods who now want it back. The hunt leads Stark to an abandoned shopping mall -- a multi-storey copy of LA -- infested with Lurkers and bottom-feeding Sub Rosa families, squatters who have formed tight tribes to guard their tiny patches of territory. Somewhere in the kill zone of the former mall is a dead man with the answers Stark needs. All Stark has to do is find the dead man, get back out alive, and outrun some angry old gods -- with a few killers on his tail.
