Michael Finnegan & Katalin Fiero Dahar

Created by Dana Haynes

wrecking_crewFormer New York City cop and U.S. Marshall MICHAEL PATRICK FINNIGAN, tired of being told what to do, and former Spanish soldier and spy, KATALIN FIERO DAHAR, who never had much use for rules anyway,  team up to form St. Nicholas Salvage & Wrecking, an off-the-books bounty hunting operation, in a promising new thriller series by Dana Haynes, an award-winning newspaper reporter and columnist.  Based in Cyprus, they work under the table, chiefly for the presiding judge of the International Criminal Court, hunting down European criminals. So I guess they’re semi-legit.

But you didn’t hear it from me…

There’s lots of military talk, plenty of Ludlumesque conspiracies and international hijinks, and a coldly pragmatic Jack Reacher-type to keep things bopping — the twist here being that the Jack Reacher-type is Katalin, who’s infinitely more prone to violence than her more level-headed partner.


  • ”In St. Nicholas Salvage & Wrecking, the action is fierce, the characters compelling, the story chillingly plausible. Dana Haynes knows how to write an irresistible high-voltage thriller.’
    — Meg Gardiner
  • “… a smashing debut… Watch out, there’s a new wrecking crew in town!”
    — Brett Battles onSt. Nicholas Salvage & Wrecking
