The Sweet Smell Of Rain

First Edition

Ian Douthwaite (Writer)

Present day Tyneside and Northumberland provide the setting for 'The Sweet Smell of Rain' the debut novel of former Detective Ian Douthwaite. The central character is the enigmatic but flawed, Det Sgt Jim Hodder, who when interviewing Dean Parks for a serious sexual offence erroneously thinks that the matter is a mere formality. However, as 'with all things Hodder' things rarely run smoothly and he is soon immersed in an investigation that may have profound consequences on many levels. Into this mix add, backstabbing, double-dealing, and corruption and it's even worse on the streets! To compound his problems, Hodder has to contend with two opposing crime lords both of whom 'want' Parks for their own reasons. Littered with hugely memorable characters 'The Sweet Smell of Rain' is written with a gritty realism and a darkly dramatic humour.

'Amusing & Intriguing' A.J.

'A great deal of thought & humour...a must read' S.S.
