Summary

"Archer has a real gift for family sagas, and here, with Warwick, he's launching what promises to be a series just as riveting as the Clifton Chronicles." -- Booklist


THE DAWN OF A NEW ERA
William Warwick has always wanted to be a detective and decides that, rather than become a lawyer like his influential father, he will join London's Metropolitan Police Force. And so, after university, William embarks on a career that will define his life: from his early months on the beat to his first high-stakes case as a fledgling detective in Scotland Yard's arts and antiquities squad.

THE END OF AN OLD REGIME
Investigating the theft of a priceless Rembrandt painting, William meets Beth Rainsford, a research assistant at the gallery with whom he falls hopelessly in love. But Beth has a secret--one that threatens to tear her and William apart. Meanwhile, as he follows the trail of the missing masterpiece, William comes up against an art collector and his influential lawyer, a man who knows everyone and sfears no one--and will use whatever means necessary to keep William off his client's trail.. .

"Archer is a master entertainer."
-- Time

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In Archer's multivolume Clifton Chronicles, one of the central characters was a novelist whose popular protagonist was William Warwick, a detective with the London police. Now Archer is launching a new series, starring Warwick. Sure, it's a little meta: a series about a fictional character who was created in another series by another fictional character. But it's also a fine novel. Archer has a real gift for family sagas, and here, with Warwick, he's launching what promises to be a series just as riveting as the Clifton Chronicles. We pick up William's story early in his career, as he rejects his attorney father's entreaties to follow in his footsteps and instead joins the Metropolitan Police Force's arts and antiquities squad, where he attempts to track down a missing Rembrandt (among other interesting cases). Readers who know Warwick from the Chronicles will be interested to learn more about him (such as exactly how he acquired the nemesis who haunts his every move later in his career), but previous knowledge of the character is certainly not necessary to enjoy this first in what we hope will be a long series.--David Pitt Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "An opening note to bestseller Archer's enjoyable series launch informs the reader: "This is not a detective story, this is a story about a detective," the detective being William Warwick from the author's Clifton Chronicles (This Was a Man, etc.). In 1979, William, who has always wanted to be a police detective, tells his father he's not going to follow in his father's footsteps and become a barrister. Joining the London police force straight out of school, he quickly proves himself to his superiors and in short order moves from patrol officer to fledgling detective for Scotland Yard's Arts and Antiquities unit, where he investigates forgeries, counterfeit antiquities, a missing Rembrandt, and a master art thief. A fully realized character, the intelligent Warrick is ambitious but naive with a lot to learn. He's surrounded by a distinctive cast of family, colleagues, and villains, while a well-placed romantic situation fills out a near-perfect hand. The final section dealing with dueling courtroom dramas brings genuine suspense to a relatively bloodless, but thoroughly gripping, tale. Archer reinforces his position as a master storyteller. 300,000 announced first printing. (Sept.)"
