It is the morning of the reaping that will kick off the 10th annual Hunger Games. In the Capitol, 18-year-old Coriolanus Snow is preparing for his one shot at glory as a mentor in the Games. The once-mighty house of Snow has fallen on hard times, its fate hanging on the slender chance that Coriolanus will be able to out charm, outwit, and outmaneuver his fellow students to mentor the winning tribute. The odds are against him. He’s been given the humiliating assignment of mentoring the female tribute from District 12, the lowest of the low.
good prequel, narration... not so much

Amazing to have another hunger games novel! But...
Narrator definitely could have put more effort in to the parts that were supposed to be musical instead of mechanically talking through them.

The Perdition Score
- A Sandman Slim Novel
- Written by: Richard Kadrey
- Narrated by: MacLeod Andrews
- Length: 9 hrs and 49 mins
The request from Thomas Abbot, the Augur of the Sub Rosa council, couldn't come at a better time for James Stark, aka Sandman Slim. For a man who's most recently met Death - and Death's killer - a few months of normal life is more than he can handle. He needs a little action, and now Abbott wants Stark and Candy to investigate the disappearance of a young boy - and help uncover council members who might be tied to Wormwood's power brokers.
A Real Gem in the Series!

Fun, but likely the last Sandman Slim book for me
Excellent characters and fun to read. This far in to the series the writer seems to be struggling with continuity and may just be getting lazy.
