Review by: Mikey Lee Ray on June 20, 2013 :
well written although if I had any criticisms it's that it seems a little too formal and a little too textbook if that makes sense but overall I liked this one. Four stars.

Review by: Sue Leonhardt on July 13, 2011 :
The Wrecking Crew is a sequel to The Defector, in which Janac made his debut. After reading The Defender, by Mark Chisnell, I was so impressed...I had to read his sequel, The Wrecking Crew.And again I was not disappointed. I could not put this book now.

Drug warlord Janac has turned to piracy to fund his battle for control of the Australian narcotics trade. When he attacks the MV Shawould on an evil night in the South China Sea, it seems he has also found the perfect next victim for his psychotic games.

Phil Hamnet and his wife Anna are taking a last voyage on his cargo ship before the impending birth of their twins. Phil escapes the pirate attack, but Anna is taken hostage to prevent him from revealing the pirate operation to the authorities.

Janac puts Phil to the ultimate test: will he sacrifice Anna and the children to save the lives of unknown sailors? And if not, then just how many ships and deaths will it take to make him reconsider.

It's an awful decision for anyone to have to make, but for a man who's already had to make it once before - in a lifeboat, adrift in the vastness of the Pacific - it's a living nightmare.

You will find yourself sitting on the edge of your chair, and be totally wrapped up in the adventure.A definate 5 Star rating.

This is an excellent read. The only disappointment is that it seems to be over way too soon. You want it to keep going on as it is so enjoyable. The ending is a real surprise. I hope that there will be another book by this author real soon.

Every bit as good as "The Defector" and a great sequel. Another can't-put-it-down novel by Mark Chisnell. How can you beat the combination of great writing, great story and FREE book?? If you don't take advantage of this great read, you're missing out.

Review by: jonathan prag on Oct. 27, 2010 :
The evil villain from 'The Defector' makes another appearance in this book - he is truly sinister and frightening and this book is as compelling as the one it is the sequel to. Read them both and you'll see what I mean.

Review by: Carol Newman Cronin on March 31, 2010 :
I actually liked this novel better than the first one. The description of going aground and Hamnet's eventual escape from the ship had me on the edge of my e-seat. Great for sailors, commercial ship folks, or just anyone who likes a rollicking adventure story.
