Description

Turn a Blind Eye is the third installment in the gripping story of Detective Inspector William Warwick, by the master storyteller and #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Clifton Chronicles.
Newly promoted to Detective Inspector, William Warwick is tasked with a dangerous new line of work, to go undercover and expose crime of another kind: corruption at the heart of the Metropolitan Police Force. Along with detectives Rebecca Pankhurst and Nicky Bailey, his team is focused on following Detective Jerry Summers, a young officer whose lifestyle exceeds his income. But the investigation risks being compromised when Nicky falls for Summers.
Meanwhile, notorious drug baron Assem Rashidi goes on trial, defended by Booth Watson QC, while William's father Sir Julian and sister Grace lead the prosecution case. And William's wife Beth, now a new mother to twins, makes a surprising new friend in Christina Faulkner—the ex-wife of William's former rival, criminal financier Miles - who has not only turned over a new leaf, but also has a new-found source of income when Faulkner dies suddenly of a heart attack and she stands to be sole inheritor of his estate.
As the undercover officers start to draw the threads together, William realizes that the corruption may go deeper still, and more of his colleagues than he first thought might be willing to turn a blind eye.

He's surrounded by a distinctive cast of family, colleagues, and villains, while a well-placed romantic situation fills out a near-perfect hand. The final section dealing with dueling courtroom dramas brings genuine suspense to a relatively bloodless, but thoroughly gripping, tale. Archer reinforces his position as a master storyteller."

Readers who know Warwick from the Chronicles will be interested to learn more about him (such as exactly how he acquired the nemesis who haunts his every move later in his career), but previous knowledge of the character is certainly not necessary to enjoy this first in what we hope will be a long series."

        February 1, 2021
        William Warwick, newly promoted to Inspector Warwick, finds that putting away the drug lord he caught in Hidden in Plain Sight (2020) may not be as easy as he thought. The good news is that tea importer Assem Rashidi, who imports a lot more than tea, is finally in custody and that nefarious financier Miles Faulkner is on the run. The bad news is that no one can find any trace of Faulkner's ill-gotten fortune, including his fabulous collection of old-master paintings, and that Rashidi's engaged Booth Watson, Queen's Counsel, as his barrister. What chance does oleaginous Watson have against Crown Prosecutor Sir Julian Warwick, William's father, and his junior, William's sister Grace, with William himself as star witness? Quite a good chance, as it turns out in the trial that unfolds over much of this tale's first half. The complications that follow--WPC Nicola Bailey, assigned to watch over DS Jerry Summers, a suspected underworld contact, gets so close to her target that they end up in bed, and Faulkner survives reports of his death and cremation to attend his own funeral, the beneficiary of some plastic surgery so expert that the only attendee to give him a second glance is Booth Watson, QC--are both more shapeless and more flatly incredible. The swirl of criminal intrigue culminates in a second trial when William finally swoops down on Jerry Summers, but this one, even though the legal talent on both sides is exactly the same, is a lot less compelling than the first. Archer, who makes every page readable even when the events he's recounting are least credible, provides a nice coda concerning one of those old masters. A sad case of sequelitis. Next year?

        April 1, 2021
        In the third novel featuring Detective Inspector William Warwick, the London cop is once again reassigned, this time to a new top-secret anti-corruption unit charged with investigating the Metropolitan Police Force. He's not entirely thrilled to be snooping on his fellow police officers, but Warwick is a meticulous investigator, and he soon discovers that some seemingly unconnected incidents of corruption might point to a more elaborate web of wrongdoing that has gone unchecked for years. Archer is very good at telling stories with multiple moving parts--Warwick's family plays a key role in this story, too--and at creating full-blooded, characters. Readers familiar with his multivolume Clifton Chronicles will see some similarities here, although it should be noted that the Warwick novels are straight-up mysteries that can be read as stand-alones (the Clifton books increasingly relied on reader familiarity with preceding volumes). As always, Archer's prose is precise, his dialogue is fluid, and his lead character is compelling. A winner.
