Publisher's Summary

From the author of Moist and Delicious comes a raucous comic novel where anything goes.
Turk Henry, an overweight, unemployed rock star married to a supermodel, has discovered that Thailand is probably the last place a recovering sex addict should go on vacation, yet here he is, surrounded by topless groupies and haunted by the stares of hundreds of luscious bar girls. Turk's struggles with monogamy, however, pale beside a greater challenge when his wife is abducted by a group of renegade, shipless Thai pirates. As Turk, whose life skills are limited to playing bass and partying, navigates the back alleys of Bangkok and the deadly jungles of Southeast Asia to save his wife, Salty heats up and sweats bullets.
Featuring skinflint American tourists, topless beaches, a hypochondriac US government agent, suitcases loaded with cash, an overeager full-service personal assistant, a horny Australian commando, inventive prostitutes, and an urbane pirate with a fetish for alabaster skin, this is a hilariously entertaining, thoroughly debauched caper novel - with a happy finish.

Critic Reviews

"In Carl Hiaasen-like fashion, Smith exuberantly spins out a busy plot loaded with over-the-top characters while taking a few well-aimed potshots at cultural expectations.... Absurd, grotesque, and plain fun reading." (Booklist)
"Smith gets the details of mid-level rock stardom just right, mixing laughs and satire like a cross between Carl Hiaasen and Ross Thomas. A-." (Entertainment Weekly)
"Graham Greene meets the Marx Brothers and the result is Salty, Mark Haskell Smith's riveting new novel of unquiet Americans on the loose in Thailand. Profane, endearing, and just absurd enough to be totally convincing, Salty is both a comic thriller and a thoughtful meditation on love, lust, and the American way." (Tom Drury, author of The Driftless Area)
