Product description

Review

"One of the best novels to come out of the chaos of Iraq; a penetrating peek through the fog of war, and a high-octane thriller."--Nelson Demille

"Fine and ambitious [with characters who are] wonderfully human--smart, determined, decent, and flawed. Thoroughly compelling."--Booklist (starred review)

"A high-voltage international thriller ... terrific suspense set against an exotic backdrop, The Wreckage is easily one of the summer's most unputdownable books."--BookPage

"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

"[An] international crime thriller with short, punchy chapters that shift abruptly-suspensefully, even-from London to Baghdad to Washington and other locales, just like the movies....I read The Wreckage on vacation...a good call on my part; it's nothing if not a summer read...There are plenty of murders, chases, explosion and general mayhem."--The New York Times Book Review

"A fast-paced, gritty story that raises disturbing real-world questions ... will appeal to readers seeking summer fiction with depth."--Library Journal

"High-octane [and] complex ... Robotham, a former investigative journalist, weaves current events and white-knuckle suspense with a practiced hand."--Publishers Weekly

"An absolute stunner in every possible way."--The Review Broads

PRAISE FOR SHATTER
"The most suspenseful book I read all year."
--Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly

"Pleasantly creepy....Plotted with precision and narrated with real intelligence."
---- The New York Times Book Review
