Synopsis

Nothing Ventured heralds the start of a brand new series in the style of Jeffrey Archer’s #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 father’s dismay, that rather than become a lawyer like his father, Sir Julian Warwick QC, and his sister Grace, he will join London’s 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 Yard’s 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 she’s 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 Faulkner’s 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 Archer’s most enduring legacies.

About the Author

There are many who say that author Jeffrey Archer's life would make the subject of an excellent book. London born Archer, grew up in Somerset, whose father was a printer by trade, was educated in Wellington School and at Brasenose College, Oxford. He was a very accomplished athlete, becoming President of the University Athletics Club. That was the beginning of his elected positions in various political positions. After a bad investment left him on the verge of bankruptcy, he decided to try writing a novel to repay his debts to creditors.

For his first writing attempt, Archer had great success with "Not a Penny More, Not a Penny Less". The book sold to 17 countries and became a successful serial for BBC Radio 4, then televised in 1990. His second novel, "Shall We Tell the President", was a thriller about a plot to assassinate Edward Kennedy as though he became President. Several novels followed, each more successful than the others. He also mixed in some non-fiction and collections of short stories as well.

Archer is also a playwright with his first play being run at the Queen's Theatre in London's West End in 1987 for over 600 performances. He had a few plays that were quite successful, having played an acting role in one of the last to be performed.

In November of 1999, Archer was charged with perjury and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice, for which he served two years of a four-year sentence. He used that time to write a volume of documentaries about his experiences in the prison system. They were entitled.......Prison Diary: Volume I, Hell.......Volume II, Purgatory.........and, Volume III, Heaven. Archer is now published in 97 countries and more than 37 languages.......he is firmly established as an author of note. He has been married for 49 years to Dame Mary Archer DBE, and they have two sons and two grandsons. Their time is divided among their three homes in London, Cambridge, and Mallorca.
