The characters are convincing and the storytelling is exciting, so it all adds up to a rattling good yarn Literary Review Michael Robotham brings his well-honed skills as an international investigative reporter to the world of high-octane thrillers. The Wreckage takes you behind the headlines coming out of Bagdad, and behind the power scenes in London and Washington. One of the best novels to come out of the chaos of Iraq; a penetrating peek through the fog of war Nelson DeMille I have seldom read a more chilling and suspenseful tale. Robotham makes you see the sand, smell the burning oil and feel the bullets flying past. Most thrillers are lucky to have one great character; Robotham has given us at least four. They sweat, bleed and cry with such raw emotion that you can barely catch your breath and the words on the page feel like a million needles beneath your clenched fingers. This is a writer who will give you a slice of the Middle East you will never see on CNN or Fox. Robotham is the real deal and we can only hope he will write faster David Baldacci
