Summary

Sandman Slim investigates Death’s death in this hip, propulsive urban fantasy through a phantasmagoric LA rife with murder, mayhem, and magic. 
James Stark has met his share of demons and angels, on earth and beyond. Now, he’s come face to face with the one entity few care to meet: Death. 
Someone has tried to kill Death—ripping the heart right out of him—or rather the body he’s inhabiting. Death needs Sandman Slim’s help: he believes anyone who can beat Lucifer and the old gods at their own game is the only one who can solve his murder. 
Stark follows a sordid trail deep into LA’s subterranean world, from vampire-infested nightclubs to talent agencies specializing in mad ghosts, from Weimar Republic mystical societies to sleazy supernatural underground fight and sex clubs. Along the way he meets a mysterious girl—distinguished by a pair of graveyard eyes—as badass as Slim: she happens to be the only person who ever outwitted Death. But escaping her demise has had dire consequences for the rest of the world . . . and a few others. 
For years, Slim has been fighting cosmic forces bent on destroying Heaven, Hell, and Earth. This time, the battle is right here on the gritty streets of the City of Angels, where a very clever, very ballsy killer lies in wait.

    Mack is, in theory, safely tucked away at the mages' academy. All seems calm amongst the Brethren. Taking advantage of the relative peace, Corrigan returns to his work on various initiatives for modernising the shifter world. Unfortunately when that work includes breaking into the Tower of London to steal back an ancient shapeshifter seal, he may be biting off more than he can chew. And that's nothing compared to what happens when Mack engages in a little thievery of her own... Corrigan Rage is the third book in the Corrigan series, re-telling the events of Blood Destiny in the Lord Alpha's words.
