While searching for the wreck of a Portuguese ship in the sandhills of the southern coast of New South Wales, archaeologist David Norfolk stumbles upon a body of a man murdered fifty years before.
In a shack nearby an old man lies dying. He too knows something of the ship, and perhaps also its connection to the centuries-old enigma of Java la Grande, a shadowy continent to the south of Timor charted by French mapmakers in the sixteenth century.
But does the old man have the information David needs? Does he hold a vital clue to the identity of the buried corpse?
Determined to know the truth, David uncovers a story of obsession, secrets and sexual passion from a lifetime before.
Erotic, sensuous and erudite, Wrack spins a web of lies, sex and betrayal in a novel that is as unusual as it is beautiful.
