DeWildt writes exactly what I love to read…characters with depth, plots with violence, chapters that cut out the bullshit that bogs them down, and more violence. Nick Gillis is a man who is recovering from the suicide of his pregnant wife. He spends his time mostly keeping to himself; growing and dealing high-grade weed and trying to shake the guilt associated with losing his wife and child.
One night at a bar, Nick follows his conscious and intervenes to save Kimmy, a young, beautiful woman. As in life, this decision brings on serious ramifications, namely he comes into the crosshairs of her boyfriend, Chad. Mix in a crooked lawman with no conscience and you have a book you know is on a collision course with disaster.
Chad is a secondary character that is brutal in his enforcement of those around him and the scenes in which his brutality coms out were awesome to read.
Kill’em with KINDNESS!
Overall, this was a quality read that had me engaged throughout. Dec 13, Douglas Cronk rated it it was amazing. Nick Gillis finds the road to hell is paved with good intentions to be only too true as his own act of kindness drags him into a cesspool of violence and degradation. Set in a small Michigan town, Kill'Em with Kindness is a dark tale of damaged characters trying to survive as best they can.

If you like noir fiction, if you like your music loud, if you like your food spicy, you gotta read this. It'll hit you like a shotgun blast to the gut. Tough guy killers, marijuana growers, trailer park blondes, vicious dogs, girls fighting in bars, domestic violence, murder, suicide, animal cruelty, and not enough booze in the whole damn world to hide the pain and every crazy character has so much pai This short novel is an intense tour-de-force through the darkest depths of dark crime fiction.
Tough guy killers, marijuana growers, trailer park blondes, vicious dogs, girls fighting in bars, domestic violence, murder, suicide, animal cruelty, and not enough booze in the whole damn world to hide the pain and every crazy character has so much pain that the whole world is bright red. The pace in this novel is relentless and, like any good noir story, the crap just builds up higher and higher.
Of course, no good deed ever goes unpunished and Nick never imagined what giving a blonde a ride home would mean for him.

It could all go so, s Protagonist Nick is a small time grower with a nasty recent experience to give him an edge. It could all go so, so wrong for Nick and along the way, it does. This story has a real noir feel. Nicely done. Aug 13, David Flinn rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites. Just like his novel Love You to a Pulp, this one is highly violent and graphic, dark as hell, and written in a beautiful manner. While it's not humorous, like his other novel, it's still an amazing read that I couldn't stop reading for any reason.
My favorite part of this whole novel was the ending. I recieved this through GoodReads First Reads. Black, violent and brutal! I Loved this book!
Kill Em with Kindness (song)
Tight plot with just enough tang to smooth out the bitterness. Dinner was late because I had to read it through. If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink: For thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head, and the LORD shall reward thee.
Bible endlessly instructs to love thy neighbor and be the good Samaritan in doing so one will invite the blessings of the Lord in his life. I've seen a lot of shit I shouldn't have but never forgot it though I just wanna spread love, they want me to bleed slow I just wanna keep the peace, and help people Give some of this money that I'm making to the people So if you hatin' on me goddamn you evil I just kill'em with kindness, yeah we leave 'em deceased - 5AM- Logic.
The above lyrics are taken from 'Welcome To Forever' mixtape of rapper Logic, he raps about haters not liking the good work he wants to give to the society but believes that he will be so unrealistically courteous to the haters that they get skeptical and start to wonder what he is up to. Little acts of benignity can throw your haters off guard, it is something they would least anticipate whilst throwing daggers of hatred and discouragement.
If somebody is hateful and nasty, it's a manifestation of the kind of life they have or had.

I've been an Amazon Prime customer for several years now, and my relationship with the company continues to grow. When it comes to shopping, "relationship" is a term I don't throw around lightly.
But Amazon has won that through consistently exceeding my expectations. The most recent was for an order I placed two weeks ago. I'm a pretty thorough analyst of information before I buy. But in this case, I placed my order for a relatively cheap item based mainly on the accompanying photo. When the product arrived, it wasn't what had been represented in the picture. So I set out to return it using Amazon's simple and friendly return system, which I've come to have full confidence in. But when I began, the system simply responded that I should keep the product free of charge anyway.
Even to a pretty seasoned consumer, that one was a shocker. But as I mulled it over and over throughout the remainder of the day--"how In fact, Amazon has responded positively, beyond expectations, for most service interactions I've had with it.
