A terrific debut exploring the vulnerabilities and co-dependency of damaged individuals. I loved the wonderfully subtle but insistent note of menace woven into the narrative, winding me into the colliding worlds of Ben and Alice and pushing me on to finish it. Clever and compelling!
I was completely gripped from the very first page. I absolutely loved - and loathed - the slow, steady unfolding of your worst nightmare relationship. Robin Morgan-Bentley is a master of hold-your-breath suspense.
This thriller is so gripping because it could happen to anyone. The Wreckage is original, intelligent and utterly compelling. I loved it.
It doesn't feel like a first novel at all, it's written with the confidence of someone several books into their writing career. I absolutely loved Alice and her sarcasm. It's a great original idea, and the style reminded me in parts of authors like Clare Mackintosh, TM Logan and Mark Edwards.
The tension builds beautifully and the twist hits you like a ten-ton truck.
This is a terrifying psychological thriller - credible & gut-wrenching. It takes scary to a new level. We are cunningly forced into the pit of obsession. Completely successful, an exciting new writer. I loved it.
Gripping with a great twist!
Superb characterisation and a devilish twist that took me completely by surprise.
Immersive, compulsive and gripping.
An exciting debut. Such a different take on things to read from a male point of view. Fresh and enthralling.
A disturbing and utterly compelling read - I loved it!
An exceedingly good debut novel, that tackles serious issues with real compassion and empathy, allows the characters to draw you in and feel their pain, and keeps you guessing...
Artfully written, and the focus on Adam and Ben's internal conflict was a welcome reversal of stereotypes often found in psych thrillers. A page-turner and the twist at the end was one I didn't see coming
'...a thrilling, creep climax and a double-whammy twist. A more than promising debut.'
CREEPY AND COMPELLING
A twist I never saw coming, and a male main character with insecurity and vulnerability - I've never met anyone like him in a thriller before.
A completely riveting debut - Robin Morgan-Bentley is definitely one to watch!
... splendidly creepy debut ... haunting stuff
A brilliant book... such a good thriller
Fresh and engaging, with such well-drawn central characters. It kept me gripped, and felt realistically, messily, human.
A thoroughly compelling read you won't be able to put down.
An absolutely cracking debut novel from a young writer who clearly one to watch.
Fast-pace and told by two narrators, we wanted to carry on reading instead of going to work.
There's so much to relish...all delivered with a propulsive plot and with a terrific final twist.
Dark, complex and wonderfully gripping.
... this psychological thriller will have you enrapt.
A wonderfully gripping tale - it is so original
The motivations of each character are complex and dark, the narrative powerful and gripping.
A brilliant study in psychological obsession, The Wreckage is smart, sinister and unpredictable.
