Kadrey, Richard  
Sandman Slim #7: Killing Pretty
When someone tries to kill Death - or rather the body he's inhabiting - he turns to Slim to solve the murder. The trail leads from vampire-infested nightclubs to talent agencies specializing in mad ghosts, from Weimar Republic mystical societies to sleazy supernatural fight and sex clubs. Along the way, Slim meets a badass girl who 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.
