Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling novel - an unpauseable story of murder, revenge and betrayal from international number one best-selling author Jeffrey Archer.

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?

Jeffrey Archer is my absolute favorite!

He is simply the best storyteller that I have ever come across. I have enjoyed every single book he has ever written and this one was excellent as well. I just wish he could write faster! I always dread getting near the end of the book because I want it to go on forever.

Excellent Plus

The book is a wonderful listen. The suspense as to which wife was killed added to the drama. I can not wait for the next. Hope it only takes 15 rewrites. The afterwards with Jeffrey Archer was extremely interesting

Compelling

Another spectacular book amplified by a brilliant narrator George Blagden and an added bonus of a good lengthy visit with the author .

Great read!

I love these books. Jeffrey Archer knows how to take the reader and draw them in from the first sentence of the book and keep your attention throughout the book. Detective William Warwick is the best of detectives and the cases he gets will keep the reader wondering what is coming next. Love them.

Stupid

I have loved Jeffrey archer‘s books for years, but plot developments towards the end became so stupid and ridiculous, that guy quit reading 75% of the way through. Very disappointing!

Doesn’t Disappoint

William Warwick slowly moving up the chain of command in the MET …. Twists snd turns …. As always a great story.
The interview at the end with Jeffrey Archer is so enlightening….. and I love that he knows how important the narrator is to his stories.

Not very engaging

A very long unremarkable book. Very formulatic and characters seemed bland. I will try another Archer book but this one seems written for a bad tv show with a meandering plot and an ending that just peters out.
