We’ve learned the release dates for Michael Robotham’s newest book, THE WRECKAGE. The book, Michael’s first for publisher Little Brown under their Mullholland Books imprint, will hit the shelves on
- Australia/New Zealand – April 21
- UK – June 9
- USA – June 16
Michael’s books are not quite standalones and not quite a series, all being self-contained stories but usually featuring one or two characters from previous novels as well as having new main characters. Accordingly THE WRECKAGE will see the return of retired detective Vincent Ruiz who has featured in several of the earlier novels and will introduce a new character, crusading journalist Luca Terracini. Here’s some more about the book from the publisher
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.
Here’s what to look for on the book store shelves.
Of course your cover will be determined by where you buy the book from but does one of these covers make you more likely to pick up the book than the other?
Finally, for those of you in the UK Michael’s most recent release, BLEED FOR ME, will be one of the books discussed on this week’s episode (Sunday Feb 27) of the Channel 4 Book Club.
