Raymond Chowder And Bob Skloot Must Die


What could possibly go wrong? Gloria Soto was 24, climbing the ladder of success, and enjoying life. And then things took a turn for the worse…

Raymond Chowder And Bob Skloot Must Die is an astonishing literary cocktail that mixes illegal immigration, murder, suicide, friendship, betrayal, and a woman’s desire for vengeance. The biggest twists are saved for the final pages of Philip Dossick’s diabolical peach of a book.
 — Gary V. Hammond

A stellar performance. Philip Dossick's thought-provoking, expertly fashioned novel, Raymond Chowder And Bob Skloot Must Die, examines the nuances of cowardice, patriotism, rage, and murder to great effect.

One of the most striking features of Raymond Chowder And Bob Skloot Must Die is its separation of protagonists and plot: Gloria Soto and her hapless husband Froio become hostages of a seemingly predetermined chain of events, with the deck stacked against them at every turn.

Throughout, Dossick’s minimalist prose chronicles their fate with vibrancy and precision .
— Marcus Tomlinson

Raymond Chowder And Bob Skloot Must Die is highly entertaining, with a great story and social commentary on illegal immigration, police brutality, cowardice, betrayal, and above all, The New America.
