    Already Dead by Charlie Huston (crimeminister)
    crimeminister: If you like your urban fantasy a little gritty, a little grimey, with a stiff splash of noir to add character, read the Joe Pitt series by Charlie Huston. It's a little less fantastic, a little more bleak than the world of Sandman Slim, but any fan of one will probably like the other.… (more)

Stark has to return to Hell to rescue the ghost of his dead lover, which involves an Inferno-esque journey through the chaotic regions of Hell, guided by someone who claims to be Jack the Ripper. Betrayal and battles ensue. This one didn’t hold my attention as much as the first; there’s a lot of travel per unit of battle. ( )

this series is going down hill. the first book was unique both in plot and characters but the 2 sequels are stuck in a rut. ( )

Yup another Sandman Slim novel. This one, I think is the weakest out of all three (because I thought Hell superimposed on LA was weak), but it has all the action you need - lots of carnage, lots of death. I'm not completely sold on the way Hell is portrayed - as a weird mashup of Free for all, rules, and suffering, but it is fun, but ultimately, Stark makes his way running through Hell, meeting THE God,or a God, depending, destroying things, generally screwing things up.

Its exactly what it is - a well written book, fun, fast, no great message, but not stupid, either. ( )

Another great, page-turner from Richard Kadrey.
James Stark, after ignoring Mason, the arch enemy he banished to Hell in the first book as long as he could, gets challenged to confront Mason when Mason ups the ante.
Exciting climax as Stark heads back Downstairs to head off a maniac wanting to end everything, but especially end Stark. ( )

Book description
Supernatural fantasy’s greatest anti-hero goes back to hell!
In Sandman Slim Stark came back from hell for revenge.
In Kill the Dead he tackled both a zombie plague and being Lucifer’s bodyguard.
Once again all is not right in L.A. Lucifer is back in Heaven, God is on vacation, and an insane killer mounts a war against both Heaven and Hell.
Stark’s got to head back down to his old stomping grounds in Hell to rescue his long lost love, stop an insane serial killer, prevent both Good and Evil from completely destroying each other, and stop the demonic Kissi from ruining the party for everyone.
Even for Sandman Slim, that’s a tall order. And it’s only the beginning.
