The bestselling author of THE SUSPECT returns with a nail-biting thriller set in the world of international baby-smuggling.

Blackwell North Amer
When a murder suspect broke her back across a brick wall, Alisha Barba's dreams of being a detective were shattered. Now on her feet again, but with her career and private life in limbo, she receives a message from an old schoolfriend, Cate, 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 uncover the first in a series of haunting and elaborate deceptions. These are the trigger for a dangerous quest that will take Alisha from the East End of London to Amsterdam's red-light district and into a murky underworld of sex trafficking, slavery and exploitation that stretches from the desolate hillsides of Afghanistan to the comfortable middle-class suburbs of London.
As the shadows across her landscape deepen, Alisha and her old boss, Detective Inspector Vincent Ruiz, must confront their own prejudices and both will come to question the very laws they have sworn to uphold.

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.

Entertaining story. Not great, not bad

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