Book Review – Devil Said Bang by Richard Kadrey

Devil Said Bang (Sandman Slim, #4)Devil Said Bang by Richard Kadrey
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Sandman Slim is in hell. Again. This time, he’s been tricked into running the joint. The supernatural denizens of hell aren’t too impressed with a human-ish overlord, and it’s a race as to whether physical violence or intolerable bureaucracy will kill him first.

This is the fourth instalment in the Sandman Slim series, and an enjoyable read. I found the first half of the book dragged on a bit too much, Kadrey kept turning the tension up further and further without any release. Then I hit the second half of the book and couldn’t put it down until I’d finished.

I do enjoy the Sandman Slim novels, they’re a combination of mystery, thriller and noir with solid paranormal world building in the background.

Having reached the top job in Hell, I’m nor sure where Kadrey will go from here, but I’m looking forward to finding out.
