Publisher's Summary

In London, ex-cop Vincent Ruiz rescues a young woman from a violent boyfriend but wakes next morning to find that he’s been set up and robbed. As he tracks down the thieves, he discovers the boyfriend’s tortured body and learns that powerful men are looking for the girl. What did Holly Knight steal that is so important to them? Meanwhile in Baghdad, the bank robbery capital of the world, billions of dollars in reconstruction funds has gone missing and Pulitzer prize-winning Journalist Luca Terracini is trying to ‘follow the money’. The dangerous trail will lead him to London where he teams up with Vincent Ruiz and together they investigate the disappearance of an international banker and a mysterious ‘black hole’ in the bank’s account.

Robotham and Barrett are now on my Watch List.

This one almost got away. Good story well read.
The description of the novel had me thinking it was a bit of a risk. Not so at all.
It took little time to engage and hold my interest. I felt the frustration of the daughter at her Dad's odd behaviour, and 'tut tutted' at risky choices and wondered how an old pro could be caught like that, and was in short engaged with the different personalities as the story unfolded. Sean Barrett was the perfect narrator.

Another excellent Michael Robotham thriller

Would you consider the audio edition of The Wreckage to be better than the print version?

I have to drive long distances every day, for me, there is no more written word.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

I love the way Michael keeps changing his main characters between books but keeps the environment familiar. In this way we get to know the characters but the story stays gripping and fresh.

What does Sean Barrett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I love Sean's narration as much as the books. He is excellent!

Who was the most memorable character of The Wreckage and why?

It would be the "Courier". He is a dark and mysterious psychopath using war as a backdrop to satisfy his murderous needs.

Any additional comments?

I loved this book, well done Michael.

Topical and Gripping!

I tend to devour audiobooks at the rate of two a month and rarely feel the need to recommend one to other listeners. However, The Wreckage is by far one of the best books I have heard in a long time. A combination of tension and suspense throughout kept me hooked over several days. I have read most of Michael Robotham's books and like his characters; Ruiz and Joe have their flaws but always have right on their side. The theme was extremely topical and the plot excellent. Books of this calibre need a good reader and Sean Barrett is one of the best around. His narration and natural ability to subtly change his accents are a pleasure for the ear. Several books have been ruined for me by readers with strong regional accents which grate and irritate. Thank you Mr Barrett for a consummate narration!

I've enjoyed the previous books in this series, despite usually feeling completely drained after listening. The previous books have focussed on Joe O'loughlin, but in this story, it's all centred around Ruiz.

It ticks along nicely. Good few twists and turns along the way. Worth a listen for a bit of a who-dunnit-and-ex-cop-saves-the-day kind of feel.

Not quite as harrowing as the previous listens, but worth a credit.
Narration consistent and good.

I enjoyed listening to this book on my walk to work in the mornings, during my lunchtimes and on my way home again. Sometimes even on the weekends lying on the couch. It was an even paced story which held my interest from start to finish.
