Product description

Sometimes the stories we tell ourselves are the ones we most want to hear. On the brink of scandal, five characters bound by marriage, friendship and lust attempt to rescue what is most important to them. Through their interwoven narratives, Gee Williams deftly explores the dangers of our personal fictions in a dark, compelling mystery that begins on a stretch of the desolate Welsh coast, when Elly Kent discovers a ring - with a finger still attached. Written in the brilliantly vivid, vernacular prose of everyday lives, "Salvage" is a taut, engrossing study of betrayal, self-justification and the consequences of rewriting the past.

Review quote

"A controlled and gifted stylist, Williams is inventive and inspiring in her craft. Salvage masquerades as a murder mystery while exploring the less sunlit aspects of the Welsh shoreline and of the human soul." --Professor Colin Nicholson, James Tait Black Prize judge
