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 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, an art collector, and his influential lawyer - a man who knows everyone and fears no one - 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.
