Dusting Angels is a tale of the final three days of a friendship. It begins as an average morning for Jay, Nikki, and Lenny; incapacitated by drug induced sickness and desperation for the next score. These harrowing components will inspire an ill-conceived plot to rob a local drug dealer; a decision that will set the stage for a series of tragic events, including the accidental consumption of angel dust. This inadvertent miscalculation induces a form of psychosis that unleashes their demons who ambitiously hunt them down without restraint.
The trio’s families would be left stunned by the devastation; helplessly searching for anything that could serve as a solution to the psychological scars that years of emotional and sexual abuse created. When dawn breaks, it reveals the pain their children carry followed by desperate attempts to rectify their parental mistakes and salvage a small fraction of their children’s innocence.
"Bringing his own highly distinctive voice to the world of literature, J. D. Smith certainly sets himself apart with Dusting Angels. Yes, the thematic undertones cover fairly typical territory for addiction based novels, but understanding of the struggle, regardless of the specifics, is what Smith brings to life and it’s this that makes his tale so compelling. . ."
