9781784295233: A Harvest of Thorns

A beloved American corporation with an explosive secret.

A disgraced 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, mostly young women. Amid the rubble, a bystander captures a heart-stopping photograph—a teenage girl lying in the dirt, her body broken by a multi-story fall, and over her mouth a mask of fabric 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 in horror, wondering if the damage can be contained. When the photo goes viral, fanning the flames of a decades-old controversy about sweatshops, labor 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, Joshua Griswold, a disgraced former journalist from the Washington Post, receives an anonymous summons from a corporate whistleblower who offers him confidential information about Presto and the fi re. For Griswold, the challenge of exposing Presto’s culpability is irresistible, as is the chance, however slight, at redemption. Deploying his old journalistic skills, he builds a historic case against Presto, setting the stage for a war in the courtroom and in the media that Griswold is determined to win—both to salvage his reputation and to provoke a revolution in Presto’s boardroom that could transform the fashion industry across the globe.

“This exposé of the underbelly of the international fashion industry is disturbing, moving, and thoroughly engrossing.” PHILLIP MARGOLIN, New York Times bestselling author of Violent Crimes

From the Back Cover:

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 image—a teenage girl lying in the dirt, her body broken by a multistory fall, and over her mouth a mask bearing the label of one of America’s largest retailers, Presto Omnishops Corporation.

At Presto’s headquarters in Virginia, Cameron Alexander, the company’s longtime head lawyer, watches the media coverage of the fire in horror. As a decades-old controversy about sweatshops,  labor rights, and the ethics of globalization reignites, he launches an investigation into the disaster that will reach farther 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 whistleblower promising information about Presto and the fire.

For Griswold, the challenge of exposing Presto’s culpability is irresistible. Deploying his old journalistic skills, he 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 that could change the fashion industry across the globe.
