Ballistic Kiss by Richard Kadrey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Stark's new life -- which happens to be quite similar to his old-new life shortly after coming back from his stint in hell, is finally slowing down. He can spend a little time freaking out about doing normal things. Maybe inviting that cute doughnut girl out for a movie night with all his friends.
Of course, knowing this universe, it is SO not going to last.
Even so, we do get an oddly normal noir mystery with a splash of ghosts, human sacrifices, and murderous thrill-seeking that eventually brings things back to our bloody center-line.
It's weird tho. Stark isn't CAUSING most of the hell, this time. Fortunately, he will end it.
Highly amusing. I truly love how it can still incorporate the WILD number of changes from the rest of the series and still pull off a hint of home. :)
