Billions of dollars are missing from Iraqi banks, and journalist Luca Terracini will risk everything to discover where it is. His Iraqi-American background has made it easier for him to infiltrate the darkest corners of the war, but death of his beloved Nicola in a suicide bombing has made him reckless. He has nothing left to lose.
In pursuit of the money, he meets UN representative Daniela Garner, who seems to know more about the heist than anyone else. She's a valuable asset in Baghdad where the possibility of an explosion lurks at every checkpoint. Luca's investigation proves volatile as well, and as he gets closer to the missing money, his actions begin to reverberate around the world.
In London, Richard North, a top-tier international banker and the one person who might be able to explain where the money has gone, vanishes. The manhunt for him will get Luca evicted from Iraq, separated from Daniela, and possibly end both his investigation and his life.
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.
