International bestseller Jeffrey Archer returns


‘Only someone like Jeffrey Archer . . . could have written a compelling story like this. Every page bristles with suspense and the ending comes at you with the force of a tank round’ DAVID BALDACCI

London, 1988. Royal fever sweeps the nation as Britain falls in love with the ‘people’s princess’.

Which means for Scotland Yard, the focus is on the elite Royalty Protection Command, and its commanding officer. Entrusted with protecting the most famous family on earth, they quite simply have to be the best. A weak link could spell disaster.

Detective Chief Inspector William Warwick and his Scotland Yard squad are sent in to investigate the team. Maverick ex-undercover operative Ross Hogan is charged with a very sensitive – and unique – responsibility. But it soon becomes clear the problems in Royalty Protection are just the beginning. A renegade organization has the security of the country – and the Crown – in its sights. The only question is which target is next in line…

Over My Dead Body hit #4 in the Sunday Times bestselling charts on 4th June 2022.

What another Great book from Sir Archer. Nothing short of hold on to your seat.
Read it in two sessions as I couldn’t wait to find out the ending.
William Warwick is becoming another favourite character and along with the Faulkiner’s and BW, I hope the next installment is just as good.

I always enjoyed all the Jeffrey Archer books I read and then somehow I missed a number of years of his exceptional novels. When I was provided with the opportunity to review his latest, Next In Line, due out in October this year, I jumped at it and was quickly immersed in the story and it was hard to put down.
I discovered that this book was the fifth in a series featuring the same protagonist, Detective William Warwick, and I'm about to start reading the series in order as I enjoyed this one so much.
Next in Line doesn't disappoint if you're a Jeffrey Archer fan, or even if you are reading him for the first time. It has all the elements of clever plotting, multiple threads which twine into each other to provide the reader with a well crafted and layered read as well as an edge of your seat experience, with plenty of suspense and excitement.
My preference, when providing a useful review, is not to repeat the back cover blurb/synopsis - there are plenty around - just to provide my thoughts on the book and whether or not I enjoyed the journey.
There were a couple of uncomfortable moments for me (but then I got over myself...) when the story wove around characters who were real people and members of the British Royal Family, with one behaving very indiscreetly!
But the plot was good, I liked the layers, and the twists and turns, the characters and how they interacted with each other and I was especially pleased when the book ended satisfactorily, with all questions answered and the bad guys vanquished.
As I said, I'll be starting the series from the beginning and will then look forward to the next in line !!!
Thanks to NetGalley for providing me with an advanced reader's copy of Next In Line by Jeffrey Archer in exchange for an honest review.
