Someone is bombing the banks of Baghdad. On the streets of London, an ex-cop, Vincent Ruiz, is robbed of his briefcase. And Richard North, a top tier VP at an international finance powerhouse, vanishes.
North holds the key that connects these three seemingly unrelated events--or did, until he disappeared without a trace. As Ruiz tracks down the thieves, it quickly becomes clear that he has been mistaken for someone else. Someone who still has something that powerful men want and will do anything to get back.
As usual, it's all about the money: who has it, who's lost it, and who's ultimately going to pay, as clandestine agents emerge from the shadows and powerful nations seek to control information and bury secrets, whatever the cost.
Australian journalist-turned-novelist Michael Robotham takes readers on an exciting jump-cutting and globe-trotting adventure in his thriller THE WRECKAGE. A powerful financier, who has recently disappeared without a trace, seems to be the hinge connecting terrorist acts in Iraq with a former police officer's troubles in London. When Vincent Ruiz's briefcase gets swiped by a desperate young woman, events quickly spiral and the retired cop finds himself caught in a case of mistaken identity with billions of dollars and international power struggles at stake.
