Illicit Trade by Michael Niemann

Two poor Kenyan men visiting the U.S. are found dead, one in jail, one on the street. Both used forged UN documents to enter the country. Valentin Vermeulen's superiors have no interest in the plight of undocumented immigrants, but they want him to stop the fraud. The clues take Vermeulen from New York City to Newark, where he riles a woman known as "The Broker," then to Vienna. Earle Jackson, a small-time hustler and the last person to speak with one of the dead Kenyans, has taken the man's passport and money. He also finds a note listing an address in Newark, where his efforts to cash in on the situation go awry. Fleeing for his life, Jackson flies to Nairobi using the dead man's passport. Vermeulen and Jackson have chanced upon a criminal network more extensive and vicious than either could have imagined. To survive, Vermeulen must do more than sever a few links. He must find the mastermind at the top. Book 2 in the Valentin Vermeulen Thriller series.

He studied political science at the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms Universität in Bonn and international studies at the University of Denver. During his academic career he focused his work on southern Africa and frequently spent time in the region. After taking a fiction writing course from his friend, the late Fred Pfeil, he embarked on a different way to write about the world. For more information, go to:

Illicit Trade is even better than Michael Niemann's first Valentin Vermeulen International Thriller, Legitimate Business. With surprises popping up throughout the book, I was intrigued with each turn of the page.
