Summary

Summary

A 2007 CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Finalist

A young policewoman breaks all the rules to get to the bottom of the mysterious death of the best friend she betrayed in this stunning follow-up thriller from the author of Suspect and Lost. Ali Barba, a Sikh detective with the Metropolitan Police, is recovering from injuries sustained in the line of duty when she receives a letter from her estranged friend, Cate, imploring her to come to their high school reunion. Alarmed by the urgent tone of the note, and eager to make amends for her unforgivable past behavior, Ali goes to the reunion. Cate is pregnant, but before Ali has the chance to congratulate her, Cate hurriedly whispers, "They want to take my baby. You have to stop them." It is the only hint of Cate's troubles Ali manages to get. As they are leaving the reunion, Cate and her husband are run down by a car and killed. The mystery darkens when it is discovered that Cate had faked her pregnancy by tying a pillow underneath her dress. All Ali has to go on is a file in Cate's desk that contains two ultrasound pictures, letters from a fertility clinic, and various papers that seem to confirm the unborn baby's existence. As she puts together the pieces, her search takes her to Amsterdam and into the company of some very unsavory people on both sides of the Channel who'll do anything to thwart her investigation. A gripping thriller and a searing tale of the search for redemption, The Night Ferry is Michael Robotham's finest novel yet.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Vibrant and utterly contemporary…An altogether superior thriller.”  Los Angeles Times
“Wonderfully assured, with a pell-mell plot, smart prose and a strong complex narrator.” Seattle Times
“In keeping with the opening sentence’s invocation of Graham Greene, the author’s terse, resonant prose hides more than it reveals. Readers will hope Robotham has many more books of this caliber in him.”  Publishers Weekly
“Heartfelt and gripping, but neither as surprising nor as original as Robotham’s first two novels.”  Kirkus Reviews
