Gangs, killers, and vampires. One war-torn detective is the only hope of survival for a crime-ridden orbiting city…
Blade Runner meets Se7en in this gritty five-story collection from New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Anthony Ryan.
Alex McLeod paid dearly during the war for independence from Earth. It left the detective disfigured, jaded, and alone. In the aftermath of victory, Alex seethes as criminal factions and cold-blooded killers clash over control of the newly-liberated confederation. In his crusade for justice in the free states, he’s willing to break more than a few rules along the way…
The only home Alex knows is the slums of Slab, an orbiting city teeming with lowlifes, back-stabbers, and gene-spliced monstrosities. From the grimy streets of his city to the lawless Asteroid Belt, Alex goes toe-to-toe with a sharp-clawed vigilante, a mythical serial killer, and a gorgeous vampire with an ominous message. His quest won’t end until his homeland earns the freedom it was promised…
But even Alex may not be able to stop the impending Reckoning and a voyage to the one place he swore he’d never return: Earth…
Slab City Blues: The Collected Stories contains four exciting novellas and one sensational novel set in a world of hard-boiled sci-fi and cyberpunk. If you like hard-nosed detectives, futuristic planets, and pulse-pounding action, then you’ll love Anthony Ryan’s world of vampires, werewolves, and space.

Because I won this audiobook, I had the opportunity to listen instead of read the stories.
Being a Dutch woman it took me a while to really understand everything I heard. The person telling the story does have a voice that “belongs” to Alex. Getting drawn into the stories I started to like the voice and I really wanted to keep listening to it.
So for the book itself, just read it or listen to it, you will not be dissapointed!
And for the one selecting the voice to read all of this, you did a good job!
It is fun to recognize the person in a book by the way someone reads it out loud. Very important to hear the right voice.
Audiobooks really seem to be the favourite of young readers in the Netherlands.( you can listen to it while cycling to school), and they do not want to be seen with a “real” book in their hands.
For readers who never tried an audiobook, this is your chance!
