Review: The Night Ferry

The Night Ferry The Night Ferry by Michael Robotham
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Although highly recommended page-turner, just bit too much information at some times and therefore just a tad too long, could have been 10-15% shorter, would have been stronger then.
Liked the setting (UK, Amsterdam), and most times the information about Sikh-Livestyle, but it got too much. The theme of the book is difficult with no obvious solution, and it does not offer one.
Instead, even the main characters questions her mistakes and wether she should have stayed out of it, if more people would have been alive then?! Very well done and also above some of the cheaper vigilantes which populate books nowadays.
Although listed (by Amazon) as being in a series, that character is a minor one, and I regard this as a standalone.
Have read something from Robotham in German translation before and looked for the cheapest book to buy, this was it. Will probably read more from him in the future.
