Nothing Ventured
Nothing Ventured | Jeffrey Archer
8 posts | 9 read | 10 to read
Nothing Ventured heralds the start of a brand new series in the style of Jeffrey Archers #1 New York Times bestselling Clifton Chronicles: introducing Detective William Warwick. But this is not a detective story, this is a story about the making of a detective . . . William Warwick has always wanted to be a detective, and decides, much to his fathers dismay, that rather than become a lawyer like his father, Sir Julian Warwick QC, and his sister Grace, he will join Londons Metropolitan Police Force. After graduating from university, William begins a career that will define his life: from his early months on the beat under the watchful eye of his first mentor, Constable Fred Yates, to his first high-stakes case as a fledgling detective in Scotland Yards arts and antiquities squad. Investigating the theft of a priceless Rembrandt painting from the Fitzmolean Museum, he meets Beth Rainsford, a research assistant at the gallery who he falls hopelessly in love with, even as Beth guards a secret of her own that shes terrified will come to light. While William follows the trail of the missing masterpiece, he comes up against suave art collector Miles Faulkner and his brilliant lawyer, Booth Watson QC, who are willing to bend the law to breaking point to stay one step ahead of William. Meanwhile, Miles Faulkners wife, Christina, befriends William, but whose side is she really on? This new series introduces William Warwick, a family man and a detective who will battle throughout his career against a powerful criminal nemesis. Through twists, triumph and tragedy, this series will show that William Warwick is destined to become one of Jeffrey Archers most enduring legacies.

A solid first in a new series by Jeffrey Archer, following a character we were introduced to in the Clifton Chronicles. Family drama + courtroom drama combine to create a fast, entertaining, can't-put-down read (or listen...in my case). I really enjoyed the Clifton series by Archer on audio, so I can't wait for the next in this series. #series

New series about a detective, William Warwick, who will go from Constable to Police Commissioner. It is not a detective story but the making of a detective. Love Jeffrey Archer‘s writing. Master storyteller keeps pages turning. Stolen Rembrandt must be found. Story ends with cliffhanger. Looking forward to 2nd book in series. Recommended for those who love mix of history with mystery.

Crazeedi This one is on my TBR for sure!! 2mo
EadieB @Crazeedi I think you will like it! 2mo
DrexEdit I haven't read Jeffrey Archer in years! I used to read all of his stuff. Think I'll have to give this one a try! 😊 Thanks! 2mo

EadieB @DrexEdit I think you should read his Clifton Chronicles series first as this is a spin-off from that series. They are excellent books! 2mo
DrexEdit @EadieB thanks! I will do that! 2mo
Crazeedi @DrexEdit the Clifton chronicles is a good series!! 2mo
DrexEdit @Crazeedi it must be. There's a 4 month wait for the ebook at my library! 😨😨😨 2mo
EadieB @DrexEdit Do you ever go to Thrift Stores or Library Sales? I see these books there for sale a lot. (edited) 2mo
DrexEdit @EadieB too much! 😁 I did some serious damage at two library sales this past month, so I'm on a self-imposed book-buying ban... Again. 😉😁😁 I'm sure the print version is more available. I just can't check that catalog until I get home. 2mo
EadieB @DrexEdit Yes the physical copy is probably easier to get since a lot of people do ebooks. 2mo
Andrew65 Great to see him writing another series. Loved the Clifton Chronicles. @DrexEdit I totally recommend that series but have tissues at the ready at points. 2mo
Andrew65 I didn‘t realise this was a spin off of The Clifton Chronicles. 2mo
EadieB @Andrew65 It is mentioned that the main character for the Clifton Chronicles, Harry Clifton, is an author and Jeffrey Archer is writing these books about the character, William Warwick, in the books that Harry Clifton is writing about. Kind of confusing to me. (edited) 2mo
Andrew65 Ah! Get it, of corse William Warwick was the character he wrote about. 2mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Sounds like just an excuse to write another series. 2mo
Andrew65 @EadieB Oh yes! Not a great fan of Jeffrey Archer the man at all, but he does write some good books. (edited) 2mo
EadieB @Andrew65 What do you expect from a politician? lol 2mo
Andrew65 @EadieB That‘s true. 😂 2mo
Crazeedi @EadieB @Andrew65 agree with person, but like his books 2mo

Start of a new series!!! Easy to read, good old fashioned detective 🕵️‍♀️ novel. Set in the 70s so no cell phones or computers and only a mention of DNA. Not about murder it‘s a fine arts heist by a very shrewd cat burglar. Very, very good!!!!
💜💜💜 all his books.

I am actually really looking forward to this new series by Jeffrey Archer. It's been a long time since I've read one of his books but I always enjoy them

Plus....they sent me a pin! 😍 Apparently they will be making new pins to correspond with each book in the series so now I have to collect them all as they come out 😂
