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.

Another fantastic read by Michael Robotham. This story takes the reader into the corrupt world if those taking advantage of refugees and asylum seekers.

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
