Stock Item Description:
John Marshall Tanner seems to court adversity. While struggling to recuperate from a near-fatal gunshot wound, he meets Rita Lombardi, a fellow hospital patient who works among the strawberry pickers in California's Salinas Valley. When Tanner tries to contact Rita after her release, he discovers she has been brutally murdered. Suddenly, rumors abound about Rita and her reported associations as a revolutionary leader intent on bringing reform to a union in a town where both workers and landowners fear what labor unrest could mean. Just out of the hospital himself, Tanner begins a desperate journey to find Rita's killer that leads him deep into a network of violence and corruption within the strawberry industry -- a world that is more complex and dangerous than he ever could have imagined.
Greenleaf's talents crystallize when he writes of compelling, topical issues. Like the previous novels in this critically acclaimed series, Strawberry Sunday is sure to introduce readers to a whole new world of intrigue and suspense.
