Debut novel from the author of '19 Knives' and 'New Orleans is Sinking'. 'Salvage King, Ya!' is a gritty, down-to-earth story of a hockey player's last few years in the minors. Drinkwater, an almost-got-to-the-NHL tough-mouthed romantic is skidding through the tail end of his 30s on a high-octane journey of self-actualization.
