Description of this Book

A timely and terrifying thriller that elevates current news topics to the next level with its story of a woman who is the target of a social-media smearing campaign. What happens when manipulation becomes the game on social media? Candace Walker is thrilled when she lands the perfect job at a hip Manhattan tech company and gets a brand-new iPhone. She's more than ready to move on from creating clickbait ads for weight-loss pills and herbal erection boosters, and is determined to dazzle the startup launch team she joins. A week later, though, everything is at risk: Candace is the target of a mysterious stalker and an internet smear campaign. She tosses her new iPhone into the bottom of the Hudson River, begins hiding out in her sister's storage locker in New Jersey, and can't think of a single person she can trust. But Candace hasn't come this far--and gone to such lengths--to give up without a fight. A terrifyingly immersive cautionary tale about social media and the internet, unlike anything you've ever read before.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review This is an interesting work by a writer of talent and, for the sailing enthusiast, a fun read. --The Globe and Mail Readers looking for action will find plenty of it. Maher vividly captures the East Coast, not only the wind and the tangy scent of the sea but the accents and talk of the people in Scarnum's world--as rough and salty as the waters they sail. --Publishers Weekly One fast-paced action scene after another. Highly effective. --Kirkus Reviews Salvage is a look into the life, hard scrabble style and fun on the Nova Scotia coast with enough sex to uncurl a lobster's tail. --Canadian Mystery Reviews Praise for Salvage Exciting, entertaining and a lot of fun. Read it in a hammock while resting in the backyard this summer. Or read it on the beach. But do read it. --Ottawa Citizen
