From an author who consistently gives us â€śsuspense that
never stopsâ€ť (James Patterson), a near-future thriller that
makes your most paranoid fantasies seem like childâ€™s play.
Itâ€™s late Thursday night, and Inspector Ross Carver is at a
crime scene in one of the cityâ€™s last luxury homes. The dead
man on the floor is covered by an unknown substance thatâ€™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, Miaâ€”who
heâ€™s barely ever spoken toâ€”reading aloud to him. He canâ€™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 heâ€™d been
poisoned. Carver doesnâ€™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 thrillerâ€”written in
Moore's "lush, intoxicating style" (Justin Cronin)â€”that will
captivate fans of Blake Crouch, China MiĂ©ville, 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.
