Reviews

In Robotham's high-octane fifth thriller to be published in the U.S. (after Shatter), foreign correspondent Luca Terracini is covering a series of bank heists in Baghdad that have resulted in the loss of half a billion U.S. dollars over four years. Luca thinks he's hit on a big story, especially when he meets a fellow American hired by the U.N. to conduct an audit of Iraq's questionable financial structure. Meanwhile in London, ex-cop Vincent Ruiz is robbed by a young woman, Holly Knight, and her boyfriend after he intervenes in a staged domestic dispute. But when Holly's boyfriend turns up dead, the killers turn to Ruiz and Holly, certain that she's stolen whatever they're after. Using his old connections on the force, Ruiz tries to piece together the increasingly complex puzzle, which soon points him to Richard North, a wealthy financier whose bank, Ruiz discovers with Luca's help, has ties to Iraq. Robotham, a former investigative journalist, weaves current events and white-knuckle suspense with a practiced hand. (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

'A masterpiece of commercial crime writing, an entertaining global political thriller that sacrifice s none of Robotham s complex, detailed sense of place and character... as always, Robotham assimilates his plot strands so skilfully that the weight and texture of social interaction becomes almost palpable as they start to intertwine and sometimes violently collide. He cuts effortlessly between a sordid, almost Dickensian London and a violent Baghdad... He is simply brilliant at the complexities, convolutions and stunning surprises of plot. - Weekend Australian'This is a stellar effort by Robotham. His plotting is always strong, but this time in tying his crime plot to controversial international concerns he gives the story extra depth and interest... A very good thriller that represents another impressive step forward by the already outstanding Robotham. Highly recommended. - Canberra Times
