The Perdition Score: A Sandman Slim Novel Hardcover by Richard Kadrey

This is book seven of the Sandman Slim novels and sadly it is the first one I have read.  I am amazed how many good series escape my notice.   This is the story of a half angel who goes to hell and back to better the world.

Jim Stark, never Jimmy, is Sandman Slim and there was minimal back story to give a hint as to how he is a half angel or how he was Lucifer and many more references to his past with out a clue as to their origins.

Candy is a Jade, whatever that is and is Stark's love.  

This is a strange mix of hoodoo magic, hellion stuff and guns and ammo.   The good guys are not so good and the bad guys are worse.  

I enjoyed the book but would have enjoyed it more with a detailed back story.  I guess I need to dig the previous six books out and find out how Stark became who and what he is.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
