Alisha Barba's dreams of being a detective were shattered when a murder suspect broke her back across a brick wall. Now on her feet again, with her police career in limbo, she receives a message from an old school friend, Cate Beaumont, who is eight months pregnant and in trouble.

On the night they arrange to meet, Cate is mown down by a car that kills her husband instantly. As paramedics fight to save her life they discover there is no baby. Her pregnancy is an elaborate lie, a cruel deception.

Why? What happened? As Alisha sets out to answer these questions she is drawn deeper and deeper into a dangerous quest that will take her from the East End of London to Amsterdam's red light district and into a murky underworld of sex trafficking, slavery and exploitation.



A gripping thriller, with twists at every turn, The Night Ferry is Michael Robotham's finest novel yet.

I really love Michael Robotham's mystery novels. He writes intelligently, and comes up with amazing stories every time. I think I have read all his books, now. The library doesn't have all of them, so I bought a couple at Hemingway's Books, and a couple on Ebay. I am a notorious cheapskate, so for me to buy a book, the writing has to be A-plus. I definitely recommend ALL of his books.

The desire for a baby impacts numerous lives, often with significant negative consequences.

Entertaining story. Not great, not bad

Personally I found Mr. Robotham's more recent books better
