Publisher's Summary

Hidden in Plain Sight is the second brilliant and captivating novel featuring William Warwick by the master storyteller and best-selling author of the Clifton Chronicles, Jeffrey Archer.

Newly promoted, Detective Sergeant William Warwick has been reassigned to the drugs squad. His first case: to investigate a notorious south London drug lord known as the Viper.

But as William and his team close the net around a criminal network unlike any they have ever encountered, he is also faced with an old enemy, Miles Faulkner. It will take all of William’s cunning to devise a means to bring both men to justice; a trap neither will expect, one that is hidden in plain sight....

Filled with Jeffrey Archer’s trademark twists and turns, Hidden in Plain Sight is the gripping next instalment in the life of William Warwick. It follows on from Nothing Ventured, but can be read as a standalone story.

Masterpiece Composition

Another masterpiece from a master storyteller in the second book of the Warwick Chronicles. Jeffery Archer never fails to astonish his fans and this one is no exception. The protagonist, having been promoted as a Detective Sergeant is now assigned a high profile case of busting a drug cartel operating out of London. During the investigation, he encounters his school friend turned drug trader who offers to help in return for a safe passage out of the country. On other hand, the perpetrator from the art world who is on a suspended sentence is out to destroy the reputation of the protagonist.  The investigation is intertwined with his nuptials and excitement of fathering twins shortly thereafter. The work-life balance of a police officer's life with a supportive family has been brilliantly narrated by the author.  The investigation is intense, wades through several rough terrains with lots of action and suspense. While the drug cartel's operation center is exposed and key operatives apprehended, the plot culminates with the art world antagonist lacing another web of fraud. Therefore, waiting for the next installment in the series of Warwick Chronicles. Recommend to read the first book to understand the evolution of all personalities and backgrounds of the sequel.

Un-Switch-Offable!

I fell in love with Harry Clifton and now I'm in love with William Warrick! The 2nd book in the series is even more gripping than the first with the courtroom bit providing as a great cliffhanger. Every new Archer book leaves me wanting more!

awesome story and excellent charcerization

Mr Archer never disappoints you. He knows what works and what doesn't . Hus grip on stories related to Art shows how much he cares for it. Certainly some aspects coming in from his personal experience.

A soap oper

Jeffrey disappointed me as it followed after the clifton chronicles which ran ougirPetert of steam as it made it to the finish line exhausted. William Warrick is following the same old well worn path into a trite boring and far too long series. The twins names a boy and a girl were called Peter Paul And I was expecting Mary for the girl’s name.
Not a patch on Kane and Able.

Yet another page Turner!!!!

I can never get tired of calling Mr Archer the master story teller, just as he never fails to entertain his readers!!! With Faulkner and Rashidi both hungry for Warwick’s blood, the next instalment of the Warwick Saga is going to be just as thrilling I’m sure! If only one wouldn’t have to wait an entire year to find out!!

A true master storyteller

It is a shame when you reach the end of a book as you know it will be along wait until the next one. Hidden in plain sight is excellently written and perfectly narrated and kept my interest right from the first chapter all through to the end. I look forward to the next Warwick instalment with a little too much impatience.

Excellent, all be it with a very annoying ending!

A great follow on to book 1 in the William Warwick novel series. I only hope we don't have to wait months for the next instalment as with so many characters, plots. sub plots remembering all of it will be tough. Seriously advise reading/ listening to the first book in the series otherwise you won't really understand what is going on.

This story is very good. Some parts are a little obvious and some parts are drawn out, but all in all it makes for a really great listen. Didn't see that ending happening, hence why I hope we don't have to with long for book 3.

Disappointed

I have been JA loyal fan for a long time. However, after suffering unfinished ending for 6 books of Clifon Chronicles, I will now stop after this 2nd book of William WaRick. Enough is enough.

Pre-ordered the book already. Only some of it gave away that there was a twist approaching. Even the twists were well written.

SUCH A DISAPPOINTMENT

Having read the so many Archer books, including all of the 'Chronicles' this was a real let down It went absolutely nowhere and left me totally disappointed. I think Jeffrey Archer had run out of ideas at that stage. VERY disappointing.

Disappointing

This book seemed to follow a recipe which has been tried again and again and doesn't seem to have anything new to offer.....there were too many 'he said's and absolutely no conclusion at the end...I know this means there is another book to follow, which is clearly the reason for this ending. I won't be buying it.

Great Story, Well Told

Love Jeffrey Archer - really gets on with his stories. Ideal for Audio books, as you don't lose concentration, as can often happen with me. Very well narrated. Will definitely watch out for the next in the series

Loved It

Cop stories come thick and not always so fast. This one has me in. The setting, the family, fellow cop profiles, all very good and realistic. The narration - said this one, said that one, is a bit of a pain. But all that aside is nothing when you sit back and listen to Archer describe his characters, describe his scenes, this is master class. The construction of the tale is superb, yes of course you can foresee some of the events, but this is not story-booking tale open like a country road. Jeffrey Archer if you care to study him, is a complex individual with a vast background with shall we say, a very deep cup of life that he draws on so wonderfully here as in most of his books. This Warwick series is a fresh cut, not just a retelling of past tales in a new cover, I look forward to number three - Turn a blind eye. In the meanwhile I'm pretty stoked with what I have just read for the second time around. You cannot help but be enthralled by this master of his class.

Another of Archer’s beautifully written books

I thought this book started a little slowly, but of course Jeffery Archer created his usual twists and turns and I realised that I was enjoying it immensely.
Warrick and his family are very likeable and interesting characters.
The performance was delivered most professionally with each character being quite believable.
Thank you once again Mr Archer.
