I am a big fan of Jeffrey Archer but I found "Hidden in Plain Sight" a bit of a slog. The plot was slow and it lacked the depth that was in the first book of this series. However, I must admit, I have read the fourth novel (a mistake) so I knew what was going to happen in the future. Therefore, there were no surprises for me in this instalment.

My favourite part of "Hidden in Plain Sight" was the court case led by William's father and seconded by his sister, Grace. Her questioning of Faulkner was excellent and there were a couple of one-liners that had me smiling. A solid read but not a great one. ( )

William begins a new drug case that leads to a discovery that Faulkner will be buying drugs and the subsequent raid that leads to his arrest and trial with William's father and sister overseeing the prosecution. As the trial moves forward, William and his team continue to close in on a major drug kingpin, Rashidi, but struggle with how to raid the factory without Rashidi getting away. With several twist and turns in the 2 cases, William also copes with domestic surprises.

I'm SO happy that J. Archer is hard at work with this new series. I have the third one in my hands now that I have finished this excellent second installment!! ( )

I typically love Jeffrey Archer’s books, but this one was not my favorite. William Warwick has been promoted and is chasing after a drug lord as well as a man trying to cheat his son to be ex-wife out of her proceedings from the divorce.
Hopefully book 3 in this series will hold my interest better. ( )
