James "Sandman Slim" Stark worked his way up from gladiator and hitman to being Lucifer; he tried it, didn't like it. So now he's back in LA with his demon girlfriend and a living head/computer hacker, plus all the room service the Chateau Marmont can deliver. Thing is, just because he's walked away from Hell doesn't mean the universe is done with him. Not yet.

From official release/information:

Product Description: James Stark, aka Sandman Slim, has managed to get out of Hell, renounce his title as the new Lucifer, and settle back into life in L.A. But he also lost the Qomrama Om Ya, an all-powerful weapon from the banished older gods. Older gods who are returning and searching for their lost power.

The hunt leads Stark to an abandoned shopping mall--a global shopping paradise infested with Lurkers and wretched bottom-feeding Sub Rosa families, squatters who have formed tight tribes to guard their tiny patches of retail wasteland. Somewhere in this kill zone is a dead man with the answers Stark needs. All Stark has to do is find the dead man, recover the artifact, and outwit and outrun the angry old gods--and natural-born killers--on his tail.

But not even Sandman Slim is infallible, and any mistakes will cost him dearly.
