This fantastic novel was first published in the UK by Orion / Trapeze and has since been nominated for a CWA Dagger Award under the John Creasey (New Blood) Dagger category, which celebrates the best crime novel by a first-time author.
It has been featured in a number of press roundups, with The Times calling it a ‘more than promising debut’ in its ‘Best New Crime Fiction’ picks, and Dead Good Books featuring it on their list of ‘Debut Crime Novels to Look Out for in 2020’. Narrated by the much-loved Emilia Fox, the audiobook was also chosen as “Audiobook of the Month” by Psychologies Magazine.
Robin himself was interviewed in a fantastic Audible video which explores the narration process behind The Wreckage, and you can watch it here.
Since publication, The Wreckage has received rave reviews from bestselling authors and readers:
“Clever and compelling!”

A brilliant study in psychological obsession, The Wreckage is smart, sinister and unpredictable.”
“I was completely gripped from the very first page. I absolutely loved – and loathed – the slow, steady unfolding of your worst nightmare relationship. Robin is a master of hold-your-breath suspense.”
