              A Harvest of Thorns: A Novel (EPUB ebook)

              By Addison, Corban

              Bestselling author Corban Addison returns with another tale ripped straight from the headlines, intertwining unforgettable characters and gripping action with the global labour issues of sweatshops and workers' rightsA beloved American corporation with an explosive secret.A disgr...aced former journalist looking for redemption.A corporate executive with nothing left to lose.In Dhaka, Bangladesh, a garment factory burns to the ground, claiming the lives of hundreds of workers. Amid the rubble, a bystander captures a heart-stopping photograph-a teenage girl lying in the dirt, her body broken by a multi-storey fall, and over her mouth a mask bearing the label of one of America's largest retailers, Presto Omnishops Corporation. Eight thousand miles away, at Presto's headquarters in Virginia, Cameron Alexander, the company's long-time general counsel, watches the media coverage of the fire in horror, wondering if the damage can be contained. When the photo goes viral, fanning the flames of a decades-old controversy about sweatshops, labour rights and the ethics of globalization, he launches an investigation into the disaster that will reach further than he could ever imagine-and threaten everything he has left in the world.A year later, in Washington, DC, disgraced former journalist Joshua Griswold receives an anonymous summons from a corporate whistleblower who offers him confidential information about Presto and the fire. Deploying his old journalistic skills, Griswold builds a historic case against Presto, setting the stage for a war in the courtroom and in the media that he is determined to win-both to salvage his reputation and to provoke a revolution of conscience in Presto's boardroom that could transform the fashion industry across the globe.Publishers Weekly praises Addison for "his broad, intelligent research . . . [and] trumpeting justice while acknowledging that the cost of a globalized society is incalculably higher than the price of a T-shirt."

Sharing her brother's sense that there is a mystery to unravel, she begins an investigation that traces Ismail's journey from Mogadishu to a Kenyan refugee camp to the large Somali immigrant community in Minneapolis.Meanwhile, Quentin Parker's mother, Vanessa, is wrestling with her future and her past, struggling to maintain hope in the midst of Quentin's recovery and haunted by the letters Daniel sent her-one from every port-describing the love they had lost and might yet regain.As the tension mounts, Ismail is desperate to find a way to save Yasmin's future.
