April Book of the Month: River of Salt
1961, Philadelphia. After having to give up his brother to save his own life, hitman Blake Saunders flees the Mob and seeks refuge in a small Australian coastal town. But then the body of a young woman is found at a local motel, and evidence links her to Blake’s bar, the Surf Shack. When Blake’s friend is arrested, and the local sergeant doesn’t want to know, it becomes clear to Blake – who knows a thing or two about murder – that the only way to protect his paradise is to find the killer.
Set against the laid-back lifestyle of the surf music scene, River of Salt ‘is like riding the perfect wave’.
