The Perdition Score by Richard Kadrey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Stark is having a bad time. He's abusing himself because he can't kill things, demons, angels, or ANYONE.
You know how it is. PTSD takes so many different forms. Some ppl withdraw, and others attack. He's one of the latter. He's going nuts without it. Of course, what is he supposed to expect after having helped Death kill a new Death, instigate a war in heaven, open up the gates of hell, and getting fired from every paid gig he's ever had because he's just *a tad* too violent?
Ah, well, OTT problems like this, including a number of seasonal trips back downtown (and I mean HELL) seems to be the name of the game.
So when angels seem to be having a drug problem and it's making the second civil war in heaven much, much worse, Stark is quite meh about it until it hits home. And then, well...
The ending is a pure muahahahahaha moment.
We have certain standards to uphold here. And eating s**t really isn't on the menu, boys.
