Book Review: Wreck Site by Fred Lockwood

Published

on

Wreck Site is the fifth book in the Jack Collier series.  Our story in this latest installment by Fred Lockwood is centred around the excavation of a ninth century wreck, containing Chinese artifacts.  In the shallow waters of the Quimbas Archipelago in Mozambique, the discovery of the ancient wreck results in an archaeological expedition requiring the services of the Marine Salvage and Investigation Company.

Our lead characters, Jack and Sandro accompany their ship the MV Sultano to Mozambique to provide the expedition with onsite support.  However, as soon as the expedition begins, accidents befall the project and as the bodies begin to pile up, suspicions are raised that the project may be less an archaeological dig and more a looting operation by corrupt officials.

As the danger mounts for both team members and the fate of the recovered items, Jack and Sandro will have to unpick the evidence and fight for the survival of their crew and business.

Wreck Site delivers an action packed page turner, with plenty of dive drama, ancient artifacts, grizzly murder and our heroes fighting for justice, what more can you ask for.  As always, Fred Lockwood delivers another well-researched adventure novel.
