When human bones are found in a vat of lye on Steveston’s notorious Cannery Row, John Granville is determined to find out why.
In a time of frontier brawls and broken dreams, the fishing industry is vital to the survival of the young province and the people who live there. Tensions from a recent fishing strike abound, and Cannery Row is a tinderbox.
Can Granville—with a little help from his fiancée, Emily Turner—identify the victim and find the killer in time to prevent all-out war?
The Cannery Row Murders is a sharp-witted and engaging historical mystery, with strong characters set in a unique time and place.
This is the fifth book in the John Granville & Emily Turner series. These books can be read in any order.
