The Getaway God, Paperback Book
3.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


"The best B movie I've read in at least twenty years' William Gibson A smart, kick-arse Urban Fantasy from a new master of the genre.

Perfect for fans of Jim Butcher. Sandman Slim must save himself-and the entire world-from the wrath of some enraged and vengeful ancient gods in this sixth high-octane adventure in the New York Times bestselling series. Being a half-human, half-angel nephilim with a bad rep and a worse attitude-not to mention temporarily playing Lucifer-James Stark aka Sandman Slim has made a few enemies.

None, though, are as fearsome as the vindictive Angra Om Ya-the old gods.

But their imminent invasion is only one of Stark's problems right now.

L.A. is descending into chaos, and a new evil-the Wildfire Ripper-is stalking the city. No ordinary killer, The Ripper takes Stark deep into a conspiracy that stretches from Earth to Heaven and Hell.

He's also the only person alive who may know how to keep the world from going extinct.

The trouble is, he's also Stark's worst enemy . . . the only man in existence Stark would enjoy killing twice.

Review by

Stark has to try to sort out the Angra Om Ya, the old gods, who plan to destroy our universe, without using any of the very very destructive tools at his disposal. He's now working with the Golden Vigil and they're vaguely happy with that, some more than others. He's trying to be good, to cooperate but things aren't always easy and his habit of acting first and asking forgiveness later is going to catch up with him eventually. One of the things he's chasing is a serial killer who looks like he's a man Stark exiled to a lower level of hell, and if he's back Stark really wants him dead, again.It's not bad, felt a little tired but was an interesting read.
