What Smiled at Him
Today’s Free Kindle eBook: What Smiled at Him
One night far from home, a mix of alcohol, recklessness and coincidence reunite childhood friends Lynn and Marv with Caroline, the longtime object of their desires. A few weeks later, Caroline is arrested and charged with murdering her husband and infant son.The murder pursues the friends through their searches for love, stabs at success and self-destructive lapses, in an unorthodox, contemporary mystery in which the protagonists have the means to solve a mystery. The question is: Will they bother?Praise for What Smiled at Him“The novel has an angry edge to it, recalling the spirit of the Beats. Many of the peripheral characters speak like prophets… Marv and Lynn are just as self-aware as their supporting cast, and their abundance of wisdom sometimes stretches believability; it’s tempered, however, by the flaw of their continually self-destructive behavior. Watching them ignore their better instincts… makes the characters more endearing.” -Kirkus Reviews“‘What Smiled at Him’ manages to be somber, colorful, and often guffaw-out-loud funny. It reads fast but is loaded with trenchant observations on modern relationships, growing up, and happiness that will give the reader pause.”-Kevin Kosar, author of Whiskey: A Global History Praise for Dodds’ The Last Bad Job“The Last Bad Job… (shows) something that very few writers have; a species of inner talent that owes very little to other people.” -Norman Mailer“No one has done the Apocalypse better! From the opening scene to the final shocking line, this book is full of gruesome twists, profound insights, and absolutely brilliant writing. Definitely one of the best books I’ve read in the past ten years.”-Boston Literary MagazinePraise for Colin Dodds’ Another Broken Wizard “Dodds gets Worcester and shows it in all of its glories and cracks…He runs through the streets of the city and nearby towns and takes the reader with him…Dodds is a master of writing the town life and capturing all of the said and unsaid. His characters are so full of waiting, of pain, and of hope that never reaches past the next day.”-Worcester Pulse Magazine“Masterfully written with all the grit and grisly humor of returning to one’s dingy blue collar hometown, Another Broken Wizard is the compelling, tightly-woven story of a couple of 30-year old boyhood chums who don’t grow up until it’s too late.”-Boston Literary Magazine “It kept me nostalgic for something that isn’t my story, isn’t my town, and I got really emotionally involved. I may have shed a tear at the beautifully foreshadowed climax, and I do not cry easily! Seriously. Give it a read.” – Illiterarty.com“Another Broken Wizard is a terrific coming-of-age tale that rings utterly true. Dodds has a gift for conveying the sounds of his people and their world. He can make highway hypnosis as fascinating as a gang brawl. And he has a natural radar for locating the perfect detail to evoke the sense of what it feels like to be caught between the past and the future, between loyalty and logic, and between the security of the known and the impulse to evolve. Though I came of age in the primordial mists, it somehow felt like he was giving me a tour of my own past. Another Broken Wizard is compulsively readable. I’ll be giving this book to some of my friends.”- Jack O’Connell, author of The Resurrectionist, Box Nine and others
