Do you want the good news or the bad?
William Warwick has been promoted to Detective Sergeant but his promotion has meant reassignment, along with the rest of his team, to the Drugs Squad in Southwark, where they are immediately tasked with apprehending a drug dealer known as ‘Viper’ who is operating a drugs factory out of South London.
Daunted by the task facing him and his team, Warwick catches a lucky break when he sees a known street-level dealer, who he recognizes from his school days. With the threat of prison looming Warwick convinces the dealer to turn informer and so begins the operation to capture ‘Viper’ and stop the production of huge quantities of drugs that are flooding London’s streets.
Meanwhile, the wicked Miles Faulkner, in the midst of being divorced by his wife Christina, makes a mistake that could see him put behind bars . . .
With Jeffrey Archer’s trademark twists and turns Hidden in Plain Sight is the extraordinary sequel to Nothing Ventured, the first novel featuring William Warwick.

Though this can be read as a stand-alone the plot of the first book is ever present, so definitely if you can read that first. Excellent villains new and old and the same great characters and the usual cliff hanger of an ending. While William’s personal life ends on a high his professional one could go one of three ways, not to mention where his major foe is. Really looking forward to the next instalment
But this latest offering is formulaic predictable and so typical of the style and nature that I was simply bored, yes bored, feeling that I have read this book by this author using these poorly constructed, ill described, and nauseously predictable British stereotypes that I came to the conclusion that for me enough is enough.
The story carries on from the previous volume with the same corny and predictable characters. Corny because they are all, and I mean all formed from an understanding of the class system that is stuck in a period that is well past its sell by date, and written by someone who these days appears to understand little of the criminal mind or even the class language differential; and even less about Police procedures preferring to rely on cheesy language and boring subject lines.
I could go on but it simply isn't worth it and neither is the book, Jeffrey has very simply become stale and stuck in a rut and really has to have a massive rethink, before his reputation disappears down the toilet....Dissappointing from a writer that I hold in such high regard.
I have given it Two stars as ~I managed to finish it, but that said the time spent in reading it I will never get back and I really wish I hadn't bothered .I'm sure the diehards will appreciate it but for me as I said and at the risk of repeating myself, enough is enough, a very poor badly written stumbling story based on very loose narratives and poor characterisation and certainly not worth the premium prices Mr Archer expects...
It was very disappointing and frustrating to read 288 pages, to discover that the threads of the story are never resolved (well except for Mrs Warwick's). Faulkner (escaped) Mrs Faulkner (penniless due to her husband's illegal activities) A drug dealer who has been caught and has not be tried in the story, and a Police Detective suspected of stealing money, and his assistant turning a blind eye to his efforts - also unresolved! This is not Mr Archer at his best. It was a good novel/story, until all the ends were left open? I'm glad I didn't pay full price for it. Hope the next Warwick book gets back to Clifton Chronicles standards.
