Publisher's Summary

"Landon Beach's debut novel The Wreck is a modern-day Treasure Island that keeps the reader turning pages." (Steve Alten, New York Times and international best-selling author of The Meg and The Loch)

Nate and Brooke Martin arrive at their summer cottage along the rapidly gentrifying Great Lakes shoreline. The beach is warm, the water is cool, and the sea breeze is blissful - perfect conditions for rekindling their strained relationship. 

However, on a morning stroll along the beach, Nate finds an unusual gold coin half-buried in the sand. Where did it come from? Are there more? 

Teaming up with reclusive ex-Coast Guard officer and Great Lakes master of the deep Abner Hutch, Nate dives for clues to the treasure's origins. But when word leaks that there may be a fortune hidden under the waves, they find themselves hunted by mega-rich residents up the coast who are willing to do anything to advance their extravagant lifestyles. 

Will the Martins change their family's fortunes, or will the summer vacation end in a tragedy? 

Put on some sunscreen, unfold a beach chair, and get ready to discover The Wreck.

Scott Brick makes this book shine!

Good book, a little slow at times. Very very detail oriented , sometimes a little too much detail about inane tasks. Anyway , the story is about finding treasure, hiding it to keep it safe only to discover it wasn’t hidden quite as well as it should have been. People the protagonist thought were friends really weren’t and the facade they show their neighbors is just that with not very good intentions underneath. Murder, betrayal and strong friendship bring this book to an explosive ending.
Scott Brick does an outstanding job narrating.

Captivating!

"The Wreck" is an action-packed addictive book! Scott Brick’s narration gives an even more vivid picture of the setting and characters!! The suspense keeps you engaged as you travel with the author to the book’s end! Murder and mysteries are solved in the waters of the Great Lakes of Michigan. The story takes place in a beach community where the lives of the haves and the have-nots are interwoven, layered with adventure and turmoil. The community is shaken as Nate inadvertently comes across an important find. This in turn uncovers more shocking and buried discoveries. Lives are unraveled as truths surface. There was plenty of action, suspense, and intrigue. Landon Beach demonstrates his knowledge about dive gear, ships, and the history of old coins. Not only were the characters believable, but Scott Brick adds depth and relatability! Landon Beach is an author to keep at the top of your list! 5 stars! "The Wreck" would make a great movie!
