Jeffrey Archer has treated us to the seven-book The Clifton Chronicles. His new series, centered around Detective William Warwick, is another winner. Book #1 in the new series was excellent and so is Book #2, Hidden in Plain Sight.
The story picks up in 1986. William has advanced to Detective Sergeant and is now leading an elite unit created to track down London’s top drug baron and take him out. In addition, his nemesis from Book #1, Miles Faulkner, avoided a jail sentence for his crime in the art world and Warwick wants to finally bring him to justice. Archer brings us a colorful cast of characters, both good and evil, and provides us with lots of interesting policework and an intense trial. William is preparing to marry Beth, who works at the Fitzmolean Museum, which suffered at the hands of Faulkner. We know William is destined for great things and it is very enjoyable to watch his progression.
It’s a pleasure to read a Jeffrey Archer book as he is such a great storyteller. You can easily read this book if you haven’t read the first one in the series but go back and read Book #1. You’re sure to get hooked. Since Hidden in Plain Sight takes place during the 1980s, you know there’s lots more to come in this series. I'll be waiting for Book #3 and beyond.
Many thanks to NetGalley, St. Martin’s Press and the incredible Lord Jeffrey Archer for an advance copy.
