From war-torn Baghdad to the pubs and terraces of inner-city London, two seemingly unrelated stories explosively collide in this ambitious, compelling thriller from multi-million-copy bestselling author Michael Robotham. 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.

The Wreckage : Joe O'Loughlin

5.0 2

100.0

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

About the Author


Born in Australia in November 1960, Michael Robotham grew up in small country towns that had more dogs than people and more flies than dogs. He escaped in 1979 and became a cadet journalist on an afternoon newspaper in Sydney.

For the next fourteen years he wrote for newspapers and magazines in Australia, Britain and America. As a senior feature writer for the UK's Mail on Sunday he was among the first people to view the letters and diaries of Czar Nicholas II and his wife Empress Alexandra, unearthed in the Moscow State Archives in 1991. He also gained access to Stalin's Hitler files, which had been missing for nearly fifty years until a cleaner stumbled upon a cardboard box that had been misplaced and misfiled.

In 1993 he quit journalism to become a ghostwriter, collaborating with politicians, pop stars, psychologists, adventurers and showbusiness personalities to write their autobiographies. Twelve of these non-fiction titles were bestsellers with combined sales of more than 2 million copies.

His first novel The Suspect, a psychological thriller, was chosen by the world's largest consortium of book clubs as only the fifth International Book of the Month, making it the top recommendation to 28 million book club members in fifteen countries. It has been translated into twenty-two languages, including some he's barely heard of.

His second novel Lost won the Ned Kelly Award for the Crime Book of the Year in 2005, given by the Australian Crime Writers Association. It was also shortlisted for the 2006 Barry Award for the BEST BRITISH NOVEL published in the US in 2005.

Michael's subsequent novels The Night Ferry and Shatter were both shortlisted for UK Crime Writers Association Steel Dagger in 2007 and 2008. Shatter was also shortlisted in the inaugural ITV3 Thriller Awards in the UK and for South Africa's Boeke Prize. In August 2008 Shatter won the Ned Kelly award for Australia's best crime novel. Bleed for Me, Michael's sixth novel, Bleed for Me was shortlisted for the 2010 Ned Kelly Award.

Michael can most often be found working in his 'pit of despair' (basement office) on Sydney's northern beaches where he funds the extravagant lifestyles of a wife and three daughters.
