Two-time Ned Kelly Award-winning author Michael Robotham has earned an international following with intense psychological thrillers like Shatter and Lost. The Wreckage is inspired by a real-life heist at the Central Bank of Iraq - the largest such crime in history. Millions of dollars are missing from Iraqi banks, and journalist Luca Terracini will stop at nothing to find the money. But the closer he gets to the truth, the more his actions reverberate around the world.

    " Breathless pace. Could not put this book down. Loved it. "

    " This book made me so happy that I am just an ordinary nobody, who knows nothing. Always enjoy Robotham's books, page turners!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andy Plonka | 1/20/2014

    " Through the first 3/4 of the book, I thought the author was trying to encompass too many threads at once. There was the world wide money laundering theme,terroists trying to blow up this and that, and Robotham's hero from previous books, Vincent Ruiz, a retired cop who has been robbed by a young woman and her boyfriend. The last quarter of the book neatly ties everything togethe, leaving the reader with comments on jounalists out for a story to the exclusion of justice, government agents who are altogether too Machiavellian in their ways, and people that are the product of dysfunctional families surviving their fates to make something of their lives. It's a long book, but well worth the effort. "

    " Ruiz is drawn into a scheme that involves the smuggling of money out of Iraq to bail out a failing British bank. The action is split between Iraq where the central characters are an American journalist and a woman who is in Iraq acting and as a UN auditor and London where the Courier, a ruthless hitman is trying to get his hands on a missing notebook which could expose the whole scheme. A page turner. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 11/24/2013

    " Quick moving yarn about money laundering, terrorism, bankers above it all. A small time rip-off triggers an international incident. A retired detective gets involved. The world is saved, but the bankers keep doing what they do. Tom Clancy it ain't... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat Schneider | 11/12/2013

    " Michael Robotham is my new favorite author of thriller and suspense novels! DI Victor Ruiz shows up, but is not the main character here. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vickie | 6/16/2013

    " Ruiz and O'Loughlin aren't the primary charcaters in this book, but they do figure in this story about a journalist and a UN auditor in Iraq and a banker in London, all of whom come across financial fraud. Great read. "

    " First three-fourths of the book was great. Setting and atmosphere was great. Ending was kinda telegraphed with a couple stock characters. Otherwise a really good read. Walks the line between thriller and crime novel. "
