The Sunday Times No.1 Bestseller
From number one bestseller and author of The Clifton Chronicles, Jeffrey Archer, Nothing Ventured is the thrilling first novel in the William Warwick series.
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 from university with a degree in art history and immediately enrols as a constable in the Metropolitan Police Force.
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. 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 whom 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 gripping series from master storyteller Jeffrey Archer and introduces a character destined to become one of his most enduring legacies.
