From an author who consistently gives us “suspense that
never stops” (James Patterson), a near-future thriller that
makes your most paranoid fantasies seem like child’s play.
It’s late Thursday night, and Inspector Ross Carver is at a
crime scene in one of the city’s last luxury homes. The dead
man on the floor is covered by an unknown substance that’s
eating through his skin. Before Carver can identify it, six
FBI agents burst in and remove him from the premises. He's
pushed into a disinfectant trailer, forced to drink a liquid
that sends him into seizures, and is shocked unconscious. On
Sunday he wakes in his bed to find his neighbor, Mia—who
he’s barely ever spoken to—reading aloud to him. He can’t
remember the crime scene or how he got home; he has no idea
two days have passed.
Mia says she saw him being carried into their building by
plainclothes police officers, who told her he’d been
poisoned. Carver doesn’t really know this woman and has no
way of disproving her, but his gut says to keep her close.
A mind-bending, masterfully plotted thriller—written in
Moore's "lush, intoxicating style" (Justin Cronin)—that will
captivate fans of Blake Crouch, China Miéville, and Lauren
Beukes, The Night Market follows Carver as he works
to find out what happened to him, soon realizing he's
entangled in a web of conspiracy that spans the nation. And
that Mia may know a lot more than she lets on.
