The Silkworm

The Silkworm (Cormoran Strike, #2)The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another solid entry in the Cormoran Strike series. I love Robin, Cormoran’s resourceful secretary, who wants to learn about surveillance and become more than a mere secretary. J.K. Rowling skewers the publishing industry with this bizarre and macabre story. It’s so macabre it’s almost funny. Her characters are fully realized and memorable. The plot once again kept me guessing. I definitely look forward to more in this series.

Book description: When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, she just thinks he 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 is published, it will ruin lives — so there are a lot of people who might want to silence him. And when Quine is found brutally murdered in bizarre circumstances, it becomes a race against time to understand the motivation of a ruthless killer, a killer unlike any Strike has encountered before.
