THE SILKWORM

THE SILKWORM

GREAT WHO-DUN-IT WITH GALBRAITH ALWAYS KEEPING YOU GUESSING.  YOU WILL NEVER GUESS WHO THE MURDERER IS NOR THE MOTIVE UNTIL GALBRAITH UNFOLDS IT ALL FOR YOU.   WELL WRITTEN AND EXCITING!  ALSO READ THE CUCKOO’S CALLING AND IT WAS GREAT TOO!

PUBLISHER’S EXCERPT:

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.

  1. Good review. Sad though that JK Rowling has to use a pen name to branch out into the mystery genre. People should be open minded enough to realize that even they aren’t interested in Harry Potter, the person who wrote Harry Potter would be a good writer of other stories as well. But people see JK Rowling on a book and assume it must be for kids.

    • I wondered about the pen name. You would never know it is the same writer. I enjoyed reading the first one or two in the Harry Potter series but lost interest after that. Love these mysteries though! I should also mention “The Silkworm” is a Goodreads Choice Award 2014. Enjoy!

  2. I haven’t started this one yet but have read the first one. I’m looking forward to The Silkworm and I hope one day she can just use her own name to write these mysteries.
