Mike Stanhope Mysteries 4
Mike Stanhope had high hopes for his self-published thriller (featured in the first book in this series), but life intervened and he neglected it. Frustrated with his day job, he decides to give the book a new marketing push. It might just change his life for the better. He picks an expensive, high-profile book promotion web site and pays his money … and waits for something to happen.
The swirling sequence of events that this unleashes shows little sign of bringing him the hoped-for breakthrough, but the consequences soon threaten to engulf every other aspect of his life.
Looming in the midst of Mike’s troubles is the enigmatic Nick Hathaway. He seems to ooze good will … or does he have a hidden agenda? Mike tries to take him at face value, yet can’t resist digging into his background. But will his efforts bring him closer to Samantha, the woman he fell for last year, or merely alienate her? And what of Mike’s faltering relationship with his girlfriend Ashley? Can it ever be repaired?
Ranging from London to Los Angeles and back, The Concrete Ceiling is the most breathless, event-packed episode so far in Mike Stanhope’s unfolding story.
The hard work of self-publishing starts when the book is finished. That’s when the marketing effort has to kick in. Mike Stanhope knows this, but wants to short-circuit the pain. The Concrete Ceiling is a salutary lesson in what might happen to those who try.
As part of the familiar logistics backdrop of this series, The Concrete Ceiling introduces the property angle – finding the right site, securing the right warehouse, fending off conflicting claims. Boring? Not when Mike Stanhope is involved!
“Upbeat narrative, punctuated with sharp, often self-deprecating humour ... an eminently likeable, but credible hero - an ordinary bloke, trying to do his best while landing himself in all kinds of hot water.”
“Another exciting and well written story that I found difficult to put down.”
“Twists and turns, very clear prose, good characterisation and believable dialogue ...”
“If anything, the storylines are getting better.”
“How often do you read something where the author knows his stuff and can also write well? The book is well plotted and convincing.”
