It’s late Thursday and Inspector Ross Carver is at a crime scene: a dead man covered in an unknown substance that’s eating through his skin.
Suddenly, six FBI agents burst in and haul Carver outside and into a disinfectant trailer, where he’s shocked unconscious. On Sunday he wakes up in his own bed, his neighbour Mia–who he’s barely spoken to–by his side. He can’t remember the past three days. Mia says police officers brought him home and told her he’d been poisoned. Carver can’t disprove her, but his gut says to keep her close.
A mind-bending, masterfully plotted thriller–“like Blade Runner if it were written by Charles de Lint or Neil Gaiman”*–The Night Market follows Carver as he works to find out what happened to him, soon realising he’s entangled in a massive web of conspiracy. And that Mia knows a lot more than she lets on.
