Candy and Cigarettes by CS DeWildt
In the face of revenge, innocence is meaningless.
Death is omnipresent to small-town loner Lloyd Bizbang. Today proves no exception. After being attacked yet again by a pair of sociopaths who have targeted him since childhood, Lloyd stumbles upon a sight he wishes he could unsee in the town junkyard. Now as he just tries to live through another day, the bodies are stacking up in the town of Horton, and Lloyd finds himself connected to each of them via the drug-and-drink-addled, unhinging police chief, yet another person who has an old score to settle with Lloyd. A game of revenge and survival is underway, but will there be a winner at the day’s end?

Candy And Cigarette is a dark and a little scary novella. Not one of my favourite novella but it did keep me reading . I feel like the story bounced around quite a bit and if it were a full length novel I most likely would not have been able to read it all because of all the bouncing around in this one . That is why I only give it 3 out of 5 stars.
