This probably is not what you are looking for, but I know that one book was recently written by a first time author, focused on the doings of Irish-American "sandhogs" building an underground water tunnel in NYC. I believe the book was called 'Sandhog' or 'Sandhogs' and the author was himself a former sandhog.
