Question type: General

I had the brakes repaired that day and had massive black smoke from the left rear. Then after all day brake pad job the brakes failed to work 13 miles later.

Black smoke means the calipers was locking up I assume. Did you replace the caliper? Replace the pads yourself or a shop. If a mechanic did it, take it back.
