    March Shoggoth Madness The Haunted Reading Room

    Review SALVAGE by Stephen MaherSALVAGE is a noir novel almost painfully visceral in its imagery and intensity The protagonist makes his living on the sea, specifically the North Atlantic off Nova Scotia During a raging storm which almost costs his life he replied a lobster boat cast aground on the rocks and determines to salvage it, which would fetch him a hefty payment Here is where the noir elements commence, as this is not an ordinary innocent fishing vessel.The author is an accomplished jour [...]

    I heard about this book through a book review in the local newspaper and thought I would give it a try It is a light, quick, and enjoyable read which, I think, is what it is striving for If this is the case, mission accomplished I visited Chester and Nova Scotia last year and thoroughly enjoyed the quaint little seaside town and the beautiful Nova Scotian countryside Visualizing this town with Mexican drug dealers, dubious businessman, and ribald, clandestine sexual encounters was entertaining a [...]

    Disclaimer I won this book on.This is a good thriller The characters and settings were well described The plot had some twists Most of the characters committed illegal and or immoral acts, so there wasn t anyone to root for, but I enjoyed reading the story.Note Many characters swear.


    Margaret Bryant

    Man, I loved this book Protagonist Phillip Scarnum is a strong character morally ambiguous, at home in the harsh North Atlantic, but a misfit on land salty thriller

    I picked up Salvage while in Nova Scotia last year I try to grab books from local writers when I travel as both keepsakes and to see the place again through the eyes of someone who lives there Salvage follows a down on his luck sailor as he becomes involuntarily involved in missing cocaine, gangsters, and gunfights The book picks up right away with the main character attempting to salvage a vessel that appears to have run aground I know next to nothing about maritime law however that did not put [...]

    Another good summer beach book Sex, drugs, and boats drive this interesting mystery based in Nova Scotia The protagonist, Phillip Scarnum, is a complex character that stumbles across a salvage opportunity that nearly kills him as does everything after.

    This was supposed to be a Netgalley review, and I did post it over there, but I was a bit late in getting to this one I m not a fan of pdfs for novels Great for magazines, comics, and illustrated nonfiction, but for novels, give me epubs And the publisher gave me a pdf.However the description of the book intrigued me than a little I ended up buying a very reasonably priced epub through Kobo and raced through the book.Stephen Maher is better known for his political journalism than his novels thi [...]

    Stephen Maher is a Canadian journalist who has written a book of wet adventure, Salvage, that is steamy and sexy and very nautically oriented Something about the stormy coast of Nova Scotia seems to promote rampant sexual encounters in his novel that seem too gratuitous to me and haul down his basic storyline.Philip Scarnum, a sailor and boat restorer, finds an abandoned lobster boat being beat to death on a reef off Cape Sambro After a daring rescue, he tows the vessel to a boatyard owned by hi [...]

    Another armchair trip to Nova ScotiaI was just writing in my last review that I ve been doing a lot of armchair traveling lately The book I read just prior to this one took place in Nova Scotia too and I mentioned that it was the first I d ever read with that setting So I pick up SALVAGE and find myself on the South Shore of Nova Scotia How cool is that Phillip Scarnum is sailing a new sailboat to its owner on a snowy North Atlantic night and sees a lobster boat crashed on shore Smart thing or n [...]

    I really enjoyed this book It was so well written and easy to read, and one thing that really adds to this story is the detail and background the Author has put into the characters Phillip Scarnum thought he was onto a good thing finding an abandoned lobster boat on the rocks Especially since had to pretty much risk his life in rough sea s to retrieve it Then to only have it taken away from him by the Mounties, while they investigate why Zinck who was on the boat, is now dead on the beach with b [...]

    Half a star, rounded up I got 50 pages into this book and put it down in disgust I don t think it is much of an exaggeration to state that every line of dialogue in Salvage contains at least one f bomb In fact, this is carpet f bombing Salvage contains what promises to be a good story man salvages an abandoned fishing boat stuck on the rocks, but instead of a big payday for his efforts, Phillip Scarnum is under suspicion for murder, the the boat he salvaged appears to be a crime scene None of th [...]

    Now this is a page turner Where Ottawa author Stephen Maher s Deadline was a political thriller set in Ottawa, Salvage is set in coastal Nova Scotia in the bays and inlets around Chester and Mahone Bay Rich in down home salty characters with ambiguous morals, this is one highly entertaining yarn Highly recommended.

    I received a very nice paperback copy of this book for free via the Giveaways program and would like to thank everyone who made that possible.This was an action packed and clever thriller with a satisfying conclusion There was a tangible sense of place throughout and great characters that felt very authentic Very enjoyable read


    Jim Evans

    Good story line Maher resisted the temptation to make the book too long by using heavy duty character development However, his heavy use of the F word was totally inappropriate It didn t add to the story or character development It just became annoying.

    As we lived on the East Coast this year the book really was familiar and a fun read
