Summary

Turn a Blind Eye is the third instalment in the gripping story of Detective Inspector William Warwick, by the master storyteller and Sunday Times number one best-selling author of the Clifton Chronicles.

William Warwick, now a Detective Inspector, 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. His team is focused on following Detective Jerry Summers, a young officer whose lifestyle appears to exceed his income. But as a personal relationship develops with a member of William’s team, it threatens to compromise the whole investigation.

Meanwhile, a notorious drug baron goes on trial, with the prosecution case led by William’s father and sister. And William’s wife Beth, now a mother to twins, renews an old acquaintance who appears to have turned over a new leaf, or has she?

As the undercover officers start to draw the threads together, William realises that the corruption may go deeper still, and more of his colleagues than he first thought might be willing to turn a blind eye.

A great 3rd book, can't wait for the fourth...

William is becoming a gem of a literary hero. I am looking forward to the next book later in the year.

A predictable Jeffrey Archer

I've read and enjoyed every Jeffrey Archer book. My problem is I can now spot the twists a mile off. The characters are well crafted and the story holds your attention so it's still a good read/listen. An excellent narrator too.
I can understand why the author leaves the story hanging (so people are keen to buy the next book) but I like the loose ends tidied up at the end of the book.

Please make it stop

You can usually rely on Archer to produce a good tale, simply but effectively told and with a twist in the tale.
This one is so unbelievably bad. Badly conceived! Badly written and totally unconvincing. Has Archer never heard of forensics... Fingerprints... DNA... SOCO?
Does he have a 14 year old ghost writer?

Great story telling

This audible book is as hard to put down as an actual book. Good characters, plenty of life left for developing them further. Would recommend this series

Very good

Jefferey Archer is such a good story teller and makes it come to life. I detest BW with a passion, please please bring him down.

Can’t wait for the next instalment.

Turning a blind eye to Turn a Blind Eye

As a fully paid up fan of anything Jeffrey Archer writes I’m always at the front of the queue to read his latest work.

That was certainly the case with his latest novel Turn a Blind Eye.

However, if I’m honest, the William Warwick series isn’t a patch on the Clifton Chronicles.

If reminds me a bit of a Famous Five novel. All the court cases William is involved in also involve his dad and sister as the prosecuting team. The only thing missing is a round of ginger beer at the end!

Turn a Blind Eye is no Kane and Able but I’ll turn a blind eye because it’s Jeffery Archer and I’ll buy the 4th in the series.
