Part Blade Runner, part Doctor Who, part Sarah Connor,
Angela Hardwicke is Eternity’s most daring private eye...

Still reeling from a brutal off-world case, Hardwicke and her protégé Eric Whistler are hired by Ther’eda Ranadyne, the realm’s sole creator of androids, to provide extra security during an industry conference aboard a galaxy cruise ship.

Isolated millions of miles from home, the event quickly devolves into heated arguments between the pro-android community and its detractors, while a murder sets off a harrowing chain of events, the likes of which even Hardwicke has never faced.

In Blunt Force Rising, the claustrophobic fourth novel in Russ Colchamiro’s Angela Hardwicke sci-fi mystery series, she is not only forced to confront unresolved waves of prejudice, bigotry, fear, and trauma... but fight for her very life.

And don't miss the first three books in the thrilling series, Crackle and FireFractured Lives, and Hot Ash!

About the Book
About the Author
Russ Colchamiro

Russ Colchamiro is the author of the rollicking space adventure Crossline, the hilarious scifi backpacking comedy Finders Keepers, and the outrageous sequel, Genius de Milo, all with Crazy 8 Press.

Russ lives in West Orange, NJ, with his wife, two children, and crazy dog, Simon, who may in fact be an alien himself. Russ is now at work on the final book in the Finders Keepers trilogy.

As a matter of full disclosure, readers should not be surprised if Russ spontaneously teleports in a blast of white light followed by screaming fluorescent color and the feeling of being swallowed by a tornado. It’s just how he gets around — windier than the bus, but much quicker.

For more on Genius de Milo and Russ’ other wacky tales, you can visit, follow him on Twitter @AuthorDudeRuss, and Goodreads, and ‘like’ his Facebook author page. Russ encourages you to email him at
