Publisher Description

Nothing Ventured is the incredible and thrilling novel by the master storyteller and bestselling author of the Clifton Chronicles and Kane and Abel, Jeffrey Archer.

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 barrister 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?

Nothing Ventured heralds the start of a brand new series in the style of Jeffrey Archer's number one Sunday Times bestselling The Clifton Chronicles: telling the story of the life of William Warwick - as 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.

Not what I have come to expect .

Another masterful tale written by the wonderful Lord Archer.
I have read every novel published, and greatly enjoyed and yet for some inexplicable reason, I felt that I could see Lord Archer reclining in a comfortable armchair and narrating this novel to a note taker, who then when on to transcribe.

Perhaps it was the way that many of the sentences were started with ‘But’ .
I had always been taught that was unacceptable grammar , and on at least one occasion this happened 4 times in one paragraph. Admittedly I’m probably just being too picky, having just edited a book for a friend.

All in all , another exciting plot twister, thoroughly enjoyed .

Awesome

This book is so Archer, loved every page of it, except the last, page which meant I’d finished it.

Jehovah My Shalom ,

Jeffrey Archer is the consummate writer and has written a page-turner once again.

The pace of this novel is exhilarating - to say the least.
