Private investigator Cormoran Strike returns in a new mystery from Robert Galbraith, author of the #1 international bestseller The Cuckoo's Calling.
When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, Mrs. Quine just thinks her husband has gone off by himself for a few days--as he has done before--and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home.
But as Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine's disappearance than his wife realizes. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows. If the novel were to be published, it would ruin lives--meaning that there are a lot of people who might want him silenced.
When Quine is found brutally murdered under bizarre circumstances, it becomes a race against time to understand the motivation of a ruthless killer, a killer unlike any Strike has encountered before...
A compulsively readable crime novel with twists at every turn, THE SILKWORM is the second in the highly acclaimed series featuring Cormoran Strike and his determined young assistant, Robin Ellacott.
After reading "Cuckoo's Calling", I was hoping J.K. Rowling would continue writing more in this series. I'm so happy she decided to do so, even after it was revealed that she was indeed the author.....have read the 2 novels she's written for the adult market after Harry Potter. Have not been disappointed one bit.
I know the book is in a different genre than the Harry Potter series, but you would expect better from an author who wrote one of the best series of our time. It actually makes me wonder if Rowling actually wrote Harry Potter or who is actually writing this series. It is mostly boring monologue that drags on forever. I kept hoping it would get better, maybe a little suspense, but it is nothing more than explanations and constant reference to Strike's prosthesis. I was disappointed with "A Casual Vacancy", merely pleased with "The Cuckoo's Calling", and very disappointed with this one. Last time I buy one of Rowling's/Galbraith's books. Nothing original here except maybe for the way the murder was committed. Save your money!
Loved "The Cuckoo's Calling"
Whoever this author really is...lady can tell a story :-)
