The clock is ticking in this roller-coaster ride of a thriller....
In London, the Metropolitan Police set up a new Unsolved Murders Unit - a
cold-case squad - to catch the criminals nobody else can.
In Geneva, millionaire art collector Miles Faulkner - convicted of
forgery and theft - was pronounced dead two months ago. So why is his
unscrupulous lawyer still representing a dead client?
On a luxury liner en route to New York, the battle for power within of a
wealthy dynasty is about to turn to murder.
And at the heart of all three investigations are Detective Chief
Inspector William Warwick, rising star of the department, and
ex-undercover agent Ross Hogan, brought in from the cold.
But can they catch the killers before it’s too late?
I am totally obsessed with this series. I love it. However these
are not stand-alone books and you should read them in order - at least these
first 4 as they build on each other. I love all the characters, even the bad
guys. Jeffrey Archer is an amazing author I have loved him since I first
read Kane and Abel years ago and then he fell off my radar. I am so
happy to have found him again and renewed my love affair with his writing.
This series is smart, excellently written and paced. I listened to this on
audio and the narrator made this story come alive. While William Warwick
has an amazing knack for getting to the heart of the crime he also is up
against a very strong opponent. Miles Faulkner is not some bumbling fool
of a criminal and I love that. He is smart, and extremely capable.
He only has one Achilles heel...he loves fine art and he got on the
radar of Warwick.
There is a lot of witty dialogue and interesting twists. I was pleased
with the ending although there are a few questions that may be answered in the
next book, like what happened to Faulkners wife, what about the lawyer?
Anyway, this is an excellent series.
