"Spike Harrison: one tough but sexy lady!"
Hey guys, for the first time ever, my brand new thriller (the first in aseries) Concrete Pearl, is available at $2.99.
What's the story all about?
Ava “Spike” Harrison might be a beautiful, classically schooled woman, but the single, 38 year old construction business owner is also plenty ballsy. Her late father taught her long ago how to handle the rough boys in an industry that’s almost entirely filled with hard-boiled men on the make. But now, with “the business dad built” from the ground up failing due to an unusual series of job-site injuries and just plain bad luck, Spike has no choice but to take on one last project she believes can pull the fledgling firm from the depths of almost certain bankruptcy and family shame: The Renovation of Albany PS 20. Problem is, Spike had no choice but to take the job on the cheap. To make matters worse, she’s not only hired an asbestos removal contractor who, unbeknownst to her, low-balled his price, but she’s advanced him $10Gs from her own dwindling cash account as a “good faith” incentive to beat the project deadline. Now, when that same asbestos contractor suddenly goes missing and it’s discovered by OSHA officials that he’s cheated on the project exposing more than 300 students to deadly asbestos fibers for months, Spike decides to take matters into her own callused hands and go in search of him. What she discovers along the way however, is a path paved with deception, greed, murder, and eventually, her own ultimate demise. Armed with a framing hammer as her equalizer instead of a gun, Spike Harrison is one hot, but tough as nails amateur woman sleuth. Cross her, and you just might find yourself buried up to your neck in regret.
Immediate Praise for Concrete Pearl:
"Another hole in one!!! Zandri, once again, proves that he is a master story teller. With this book, he lures you onto a Tower of Terror ride and buckles you in before you have the ability to get off. Brilliant!!! This is what I call a "transport" book, whereas I was so engrossed in the plot that I was unaware of my surroundings. Because of his superb writing style, both the characters and settings, I was able to create vivid visualizations in my mind. Gifted!! Ava "Spike" Harrison, the main character, was charismatic who fought on principals but also had to deal with emotions of loss (vague due to not wanting to include spoilers)."--CMASH LOVES TO READ Book Blog
"There's enough intrigue in "Concrete Pearl" to keep you guessing until the very end. That sounds cliche, but it's true. This is Zandri's best novel to date. You can't say it any other way."
"I don't know if anyone remembers a little known novel called THE REMAINS. In that, the man nails down the viewpoint of not just one girl but identical twins, Amazing! So I wasn't surprised he went to the well again and tied that together with something he also has first-hand knowledge of, the construction industry. Your basic win-win for the man. He gets to write about something he has been success with , the women's perspective and the construction industry; we the reader to get to reap the benefits of another intense, fast paced, hard hitting, framing hammer to the skull read from the reigning 'King of Kindle'."--Giovanni Gelati, Gelati's Scoop
