Strange Inheritance

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

The first book of the Joseph Radkin Investigations series was originally published in 1985 by Pluto Press as part of their New Crime imprint of mysteries with a social relevance. Strange Inheritance begins with a carton of letters and a stack of hundred dollar bills - an inheritance Radkin has received from his recently deceased dad. As Radkin's father was a life-long union activist who died disillusioned and broke, where did all this money come from? Tracing his father's mysterious life from clues in letters written aboard a remarkable merchant ship bound for North Africa during WW II, he stumbles upon a compelling story of one man's quest for social justice in the aftermath of the cold war.

"This is a wonderful pot pourri of a book - part thriller, part contemporary history, part family saga... It is also gripping reading, beautifully written and, at times, very funny." Tribune
