This is your chance to rant about what aggravates you the most…
I’m sitting here trying to conjure up something that aggravates me. Maybe that means I shouldn’t participate this week until I remembered one thing from last night’s trip to Walmart. Why are the aisles so narrow and packed so much that you can’t even walk out of an aisle without nearly hitting another cart and having to apologize. Why do I have to apologize because I am done in the chip aisle? Who should apologize? The person walking past the aisle entrances is simply walking by because they don’t need to go down that aisle. Is that the crime? Should there be a set path through a store, a set direction you have to go in so no one is crashing carts? I don’t mind apologizing. I don’t mean to hit anyone with my cart! It seems like, for whatever the reason this doesn’t happen at Publix. The aisles are sometimes even so narrow that the cart handles hit.
Angela Hardwicke is back; this time she’s taking on her toughest mystery! Read on for more info about Hot Ash by Russ Colchamiro!
Publication Date: September 6th, 2022
Genre: Sci-Fi Mystery
Intergalactic private Angela Hardwicke is Eternity’s most daring spy for hire…
Following the mysterious and ill-timed death of her elderly husband, Camille Engquist was set to inherit the family’s real estate development company. But her stepkids stole it from her first. Or so she claims.
As Hardwicke and her protégé Eric Whistler dive into the world of affordable housing, synthetic concrete, and corporate succession planning, their investigation put them face-to-face with the haves and have-nots, a new form of cocaine, a boundary-pushing neurobiologist, a majestic domed city and a violent conspiracy that stretches farther and deeper than they ever could have imaged. But the most insidious betrayals are sometimes closer to home.
In Hot Ash, Russ Colchamiro’s most action-packed Sci-Fi mystery yet, Angela Hardwicke must grapple with the worst pain of all—that the people we love are the ones we should fear most.
And don’t miss the first two books in the series, Crackle and Fire and Fractured Lives!
