Overview

LIla is dead. And the likely suspects are all men: her flash-in-the-pan literary husband, a washed up golf pro turned criminal with a cocaine habit, and two small-time thugs looking for the perfect score. As a crime novel for a new age, this is sex, drugs, and a story that unfolds as a map of bad intentions. In One Hit Wonders, Patrick Warner weaves an energetic tale that is part caper and partmurdermystery—relentlessly satiric, brutally funny, and obsessively readable

Reviews

“One Hit Wonders,” Patrick Warner’s second novel (and as a poet he’s produced four collections), is a thriller along the noir/hard-boiled school — gritty, wry and violent, and beguiled by a femme fatale. "

Joan Sullivan, The Telegram

"One Hit Wonders is a sexually charged and drug-fuelled romp through a truer modern St. John’s than those romanticized tourism ads. ”

The Overcast

"One Hit Wonders is a novel about contemporary issues in contemporary St. John's, written for contemporary readers of the city and beyond. It is a story that keeps you guessing, analyzing, investigating, and turning page after page looking for answers and clarifications. "

Newfoundland and Labrador Studies Journal

"This is a novel about story-making, about empathy and where it can take us. " -See the full review here: http://picklemethis. com/2016/01/17/one-hit-wonders-by-patrick-warner/
