Turn a Blind Eye : A Detective William Warwick Novel

Booklist


From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.

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.

Publishers Weekly Review

Turn a Blind Eye : A Detective William Warwick Novel

Publishers Weekly


(c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

Three cases preoccupy Det. Insp. William Warwick in bestseller Archer's unconvincing third outing for the London policeman (after 2020's Hidden in Plain Sight). In 1987, Warwick is slated to be the chief Crown witness in the prosecution of drug kingpin Assem Rashidi; takes on a confidential new assignment to investigate Det. Sgt. Jerry Summers, a colleague suspected of being crooked; and is tasked with apprehending fugitive Miles Faulkner, a criminal mastermind who figured in the previous book. Implausibly, the government is represented in the Rashidi trial by Warwick's father, Sir Julian, and his sister, Grace, setting up inevitable and unnecessary distractions when defense counsel takes advantage of those relationships to undermine the case against Rashidi. The action shifts among trial scenes, Faulkner's machinations, and Warwick's efforts to get the goods on Summers. Archer strains credulity by making it too easy for some key evidence to be tampered with in the high-profile Rashidi case, and Sir Julian proves to be a surprisingly inept questioner in court. This one's strictly for series fans. (Apr.)
