Another commanding, powerhouse of a read from Daniel Pembrey. Night Market continues on from the first in the series, diving straight into part IV, and while you could enjoy this as a standalone, you would be missing out if you don't enter with the The Harbour Master. The rather wonderful Henk van der Pol is tasked with infiltrating a jointly policed investigation team. He enters a murky, chilling world, where he not only scrutinises his colleagues, he questions himself, and the world of justice. Set in the main in The Netherlands, we also visit Norway, each location enters the story with vivid intensity. This is such a readable tale, I just gobbled it up, the action constantly evolves, spinning your thoughts, testing your feelings. Tenacious, provocative, and with plenty of surprises in store, ‘Night Market’ really is a story to get your teeth into. ~ Liz Robinson

Night Market by Daniel Pembrey

When Henk van der Pol is asked by the Justice Minister to infiltrate a team investigating an online child exploitation network, he can hardly say no – he’s at the mercy of prominent government figures in The Hague. But he soon realises the case is far more complex than he was led to believe…

Picking up from where The Harbour Master ended, this new investigation sees Detective Van der Pol once again put his life on the line as he wades through the murky waters between right and wrong in his search for justice.

Sometimes, to catch the bad guys, you have to think like one. . .
