The ''SandmanSlim'' series of books by Richard Kadrey are about a man named James William Butler "Sandman Slim" Stark who is a talented magician (not a wizard! Wizards are Harry Potter) living in our world where magic is under the {{Masquerade}}. When he trusts the wrong people, the group who he thought were his allies [[AssholeVictim (or at least not asshole enough to pull a stunt like this)]] sends him on a one-way trip to hell. For eleven years he's forced to participate in gladiatorial events for the entertainment of demons and fallen angels, then recruited as hitman for Azazel. When his girlfriend back on Earth is killed, he steals a key that can take him anywhere in the universe and escapes to the mortal world to [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge hunt the killers down]], including their leader [[SmugSnake Mason Faim]] and his pet thug [[TheDragon Parker]].

* ExtraStrengthMasquerade: So a ZombieApocalypse was narrowly averted. Half of Los Angeles was in flames. Fast forward six weeks and not a single {{Muggle}} has gone public with any solid evidence of what really happened. I guess it helps that [[spoiler: all the Drifters turned to ashes]].
