BAGHDAD. Journalist Luca Terracini is living outside the wire and investigating a series of deadly million-dollar bank robberies. But he's about to make some powerful enemies who seek to bury secrets and manipulate the truth, regardless of the cost.

LONDON. A thousand miles away, ex-cop Vincent Ruiz rescues a young woman, Holly Knight, from a violent boyfriend - but wakes next morning to find she's robbed him. It was an elaborate scam. Furious at himself, and at her, he sets off to find Holly.

Set in the turbulent aftermath of the Global Financial Crisis, THE WRECKAGE is a compulsively gripping political thriller from world-renowned author Michael Robotham.

A masterpiece of commercial crime writing, an entertaining global political thriller that sacrifices none of Robotham's complex, detailed sense of place and character ... as always, Robotham assimilates his plot strands so skilfully that the weight and texture of social interaction becomes almost palpable as they start to intertwine and sometimes violently collide. He cuts effortlessly between a sordid, almost Dickensian London and a violent Baghdad ... He is simply brilliant at the complexities, convolutions and stunning surprises of plot. - WEEKEND AUSTRALIAN

This is a stellar effort by Robotham. His plotting is always strong, but this time in tying his crime plot to controversial international concerns he gives the story extra depth and interest ... another impressive step forward by the already outstanding Robotham. Highly recommended. - CANBERRA TIMES

A writer of the highest class who can create terror from the commonplace and crush the breath out of you - DAILY MAIL

Robotham is an absolute master - STEPHEN KING

Michael Robotham is an extraordinary writer. He puts you directly in every scene. You smell the bomb residue. You feel the dread as another corner is turned ... Robotham has raised the bar to another level. - DAVID BALDACCI
