An intense psychological thriller that delves into the psyche of the criminal mind by the multi-million-copy bestselling author of LIFE OR DEATH, Michael Robotham

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, mysterious lie.
Why? What happened? Alisha 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 compelling page-turner, with twists at every turn, THE NIGHT FERRY is Michael Robotham's first standalone novel.
