Description

The Sunday Times No.1 Bestseller

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 a detective.

William Warwick is eight when he decides to join the police force. Resolute in the face of his prominent QC father's objections, William graduates in Art History from university and immediately enrols as a constable in the Metropolitan Police.

Gaining insight from his first mentor, an experienced, world-weary constable, his keen mind quickly takes him into a role in Scotland Yard's Art and Antiques unit and his first case: the recovery of a Rembrandt stolen from the Fitzmolean Museum.

It will take skill and tenacity for William to solve the crime, and along the way he will encounter many who will change his life, from Miles Faulkner, a crooked art collector, and his influential lawyer - who bends the law to the point of breaking - to research assistant Beth Rainsford, a woman with secrets who he falls hopelessly in love with . . .

William Warwick's destiny is set, the only question is, how far will his ambition take him? Thrilling, absorbing and entertaining, Nothing Ventured heralds the start of a brand new series from master storyteller Jeffrey Archer and introduces a character destined to become one of his most enduring legacies.

A rollicking read filled with aspirational underdogs, suave sophisticates, and fractious family intrigue * Northern Echo * Enjoyable * Daily Telegraph * A juicy, engrossing read with a fabulous ending * Daily Express * Glamorous art thief-style locations weave with visits to Belmarsh prison as the story builds to its exciting conclusion. The courtroom scenes are particularly entertaining, and, of course, there's a trademark Archer twist * Daily Mail * Juicy, fast-paced read with a fabulous twist * Daily Mirror * Jeffrey is the consummate story-teller and his latest novel, Nothing Ventured [is] fast-paced and thrilling, with his trademark plot twists and cliff-hangers * Daily Mail * A pacey tale of fakes, forgeries and ripped-off Rembrandts worthy of a TV crime caper * Daily Express * If there was a Nobel Prize for storytelling, Archer would win * Daily Telegraph * Probably the greatest storyteller of our age * Daily Mail *
