“Salmon Run” has you intrigued from the first page. It is an easy-to-read novel, with vivid descriptions that make one feel like they are right there.
What happens to a man who has it all? He had a good job, beautiful and rich wife and two great daughters. Little did he know that his world would fall apart one day at the beach and he would be on the run-- from what, he didn’t know. But he did know he needed to get away from the ghost that was following him and, along the way, he discovers who he really is and what life has in store for him.
Capps’ book has so many twists and turns that you cannot put it down. It will make you angry, sad and almost yelling as the main character Woodrow Salmon finds himself in so many high-risk situations and his loving wife is behind it all.
“Salmon Run” is Capps’ first novel and he has done an excellent job in pulling in the reader to this hair-raising plot. His writing flows easily, and his descriptions of places and events are such that you can identify with them. We all know people like those in the book.
