Jeffrey Archer’s Second Detective William Warwick Novel Announced

Detective William Warwick is set to return on November 3, 2020, in Hidden in Plain Sight, the latest novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Jeffrey Archer.

Back in 2016,  Jeffrey Archer brought his popular Clifton Chronicles series to a close with This Was a Man. Then, last year, he revisited that world once again with the release of Nothing Ventured, the first book in a new spinoff series following William Warrick, who was, of course, the hero of Harry Clifton, a prestigious author and the main protagonist of Archer’s Clifton saga.

Now, Warrick is primed to return for another case, this time to find a major drug dealer who runs an extensive network of crime out of London. Check out the cover art and plot details below.

William Warwick has been promoted to Detective Sergeant, but his promotion means that he, along with the rest of his team, have been reassigned to the Drugs Squad. They are immediately tasked with apprehending Ahmed Rashedi, a notorious drug dealer, who operates his extensive network out of South London.

As the investigation progresses, William runs into enemies old and new: Adrian Heath, from his school days, now a street dealer who he convinces to turn informer; and financier Miles Faulkner, who makes a mistake that could finally see him put behind bars. Meanwhile, William and his fiancée Beth enjoy making preparations for their upcoming wedding, though an unpleasant surprise awaits them at the altar.

As William’s team closes the net around a criminal network like none they have ever faced before, he devises a trap they would never expect, one that is hidden in plain sight . . .



Jeffrey Archer was educated at Oxford University. He served five years as a Member of Parliament in the House of Commons and has served twenty-seven years as a Member of the House of Lords. Now published in 97 countries and more than 37 languages, all of his novels and short story collections―including Kane & Abel, Only Time Will Tell and This Was a Man―have been international bestsellers. Jeffrey is married with two sons and three grandchildren, and lives in London, Cambridge, and Majorca.
