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.

  • Williams climb through the ranks

    by on

    Once again the author has lived up to the high standard that he has set with the Clifton Chronicles. In Nothing Ventured we meet William who from a small boy has wanted to join the police force much to his father’s objections.william appeases his father by going to university but not to study law which is what his father wanted. On graduating he joins the police force and we follow William’s journey as he rises through the ranks to become a detective. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and highly recommend it to the authors followers or those who are new to him. I hope I do not have to wait too long to read the next chapter of William’s life at Scotland Yard.
