James Stark, aka Sandman Slim, the once-dead half-human/half-angel and former contract killer for the Devil, narrates this gritty tale, delivered in a deep, snarky voice by MacLeod Andrews. Stark searches for the lost Qomrama Om Ya, a stone that can kill the old gods. He follows clues that lead him to hotels, creepy bars, and otherworldly rooms. Internal dialogue, outrageous posturing, and disgusting details are read flawlessly by Andrews, who rolls with the punches along with Stark. Every demon, imaginary creature, and supernatural character provides clues designed to distract our hero from his quest. Snappy dialogue, droll humor, and relentless encounters with the undead keep Andrews on his toes. M.B.K. 2014 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2014]
