Summary
"Thirty-eight-year-old Ava "Spike" Harrison can hold her own in the boys club that is the construction business. Her late father saw to it that she was as comfortable on a job site as she was behind a textbook. But the past few years have had her over a barrel-job site injuries and a string of bad luck, including the death of her husband, have hampered the venerable Harrison Construction Company. Taking a cheap job here and there has been her only option. Grasping at straws, though, comes at a price: an asbestos removal contractor she's hired, Jimmy Farrell-a lifelong acquaintance who gladly accepted 10,000 from Spike as a "good faith" incentive-has gone AWOL. The three hundred students at Albany's PS 20, the job site, are about to be exposed to deadly asbestos fibers. What starts out as a goose chase-from a cleared-out office to Jimmy's impounded car-turns into an all-out search for the real story behind the man's sudden disappearance. Trading in her work boots for gumshoes, Spike must tread a path paved with deception, greed, and even murder if she's going to nail down the truth."--Publisher's website
