Hot Ash

by Russ Colchamiro

September 23-26

“Russ Colchamiro has staked out a territory of sci-fi mystery uniquely his own. With Angela Hardwicke, he mines a vein of pulp fiction gold.” –Nicholas Meyer, writer/director of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

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!

This is a stand-alone mystery, and the books in The Angela Hardwicke Mysteries series can be read in any order. Black Phoenix is offering the other books in the series for you to download if you would like as well when joining the tour of Hot Ash.
