"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.

At thirty-eight, Ava ?Spike? Harrison has been a major player in the local construction industry. She's also had to rebuild her family business from the bottom up thanks to bad luck and bad fines. So it's easy to see why OSHA, breathing down her neck on her latest job at Albany's PS 20, has the contractor on edge. She's used to putting out fires, but this is about to be a full-on explosion ? three hundred students at risk for exposure to deadly asbestos, and the asbestos removal contractor, Jimmy Farrell, is nowhere to be found. The clues ? Jimmy's cleared-out office, his impounded car, his ?gone fishing? story to his wife ? point to something more troubling, possibly foul play. Armed with a framing hammer in lieu of a gun, Spike must sleuth her way through a world of deception, greed, and murder if she's going to nail a killer.
