The New York Times bestselling novel – an unputdownable story of murder, revenge and betrayal from international number one bestseller Jeffrey Archer.
THE CLOCK IS TICKING IN THIS ROLLERCOASTER 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 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?

Take, for instance, in the course of a conversation, the emergence of a discourse - take a deep breath, one sentence, all of 41 words - on the origins of 'a feather in his cap'. I switched off, however interesting the explanation might be. It is so unrealistic, a testament more to Archer's erudition than to his craftsmanship.
Elsewhere we are fed lists of names of artists (and museums/galleries), about whom I'm left not much the wiser, or, indeed interested; the same might be said of just the two that are germane to the plot. Compare that with the subtler manner in which Michael Connelly weaves into one of his 'Bosch' novels the intriguing significance of the owl in the paintings of his protagonist's mediaeval namesake. Suffice it to say, I now have a volume of reproductions of that magnificent artist's output...
Moreover, in Archer's book I sense an occasional whiff of moralising, and though I have yet to spot any of the usual kind of product placement, I suspect it can be found nevertheless in all that name-dropping.
I'm still soldiering on with it in the hope that its merits will outweigh its faults, but my reaching the end is open to doubt. Frankly, give me instead the 22 or so volumes of Connelly's Bosch any day.
POSTSCRIPT (some time before April 2022):
I've started so I'll finish. I did. Ugh.
Maybe some worthy souls tackling the Lyke Wake Walk feel likewise...
There's a hint of a cliffhanger in the ending, perhaps enticing us to gobble up the next WW volume. Some, having plodded along Archer's path, might prefer the walk to the cliffs at Ravenscar than fall for that one...
To have a new character come along was good but.... For him to tie everything up seemed disingenuous to the whole series of books.
Further, It was set in 1988 - there were no mobile phones that fitted into your pocket yet this was a key elemenent in one of the shootings BUT the unforgiveable act was the ending. What happened? What happened to the wife the lawyer? I feel so cheated and after reading his first book when I was 16 and I'm now 52, I expected better of such an amazing author.
