Mayan Strawberries

(2012)
(A book in the Joseph Radkin series)
A novel by

 
A young Mixtec Indian from Guatemala follows the trail of tears through Mexico to a migrant camp in the strawberry fields of California. There, instead of refuge, he finds himself accused of murder. Is he the killer or a patsy set up to distract attention from a right wing cult? Radkin is lured into writing a story but finds himself used as bait in a mystery that goes far beyond a small farming town. Mayan Strawberries combines a fascinating anthropological study with the deadly politics of Central America. Final book of the Radkin series and previously unpublished. A Black Apollo original. "It's great to see this delicious series back in print ! What the 'New Crime' genre attempted through books like the Joseph Radkin Investigation Series - recently brought back into print by Black Apollo Mysteries - was to exchange the cheap thrills of macho car chases and hot lead with a world where criminals can be good guys and villains can be ordinary people who betrayed a human trust. In the process we were given insight into dusty corners of history that few of us knew existed!" Oxymandias Magazine "Has a zip and freshness of narration hard to resist ... funny as well." The Guardian "More red herrings than a Moscow fishmonger's" Yorkshire Post "Difficult to put down!" Scotland on Sunday "This is nothing what it seems territory with a few extra twists, mayhem and a cruel message. Formidable!" The Sunday Times
