The Silkworm

By 07:00 , ,

This book was absolutely as good as the first. Once again Cormoran Strike gets embroiled in a murder but this time his profile is higher after the Lula Landry case.
The title 'Silkworm' comes from the book written by a missing author, whose wife is searching for him. He is a serial philander who often goes away to writers retreats and seems to have irritated everyone he knows. But as Cormoran delves further in this mans's life he comes to the conclusion that he hasn't just gone missing.
Filled with plot twists and detail, the Hagrid-esque Cormoran and his side-kick the brilliantly efficient Robin get embroiled in yet another murder.

Throughout all this there is the other problem of  Robin's soon-to-be husband who has taken a distinct disliking to Cormoran (not helped by Robin's desire to become his working partner, not just assistant).

Overall a fantastic book by J.K Rowling, and the third book 'Career of Evil' is out now - I haven't read it yet, but it's supposed to be brilliant. Have you read it yet? What did you think of it?

I would love it if you took a look at my post on the first novel in the Strike series here: and my other book reviews which come out on the first Friday of each month!

Hope you enjoy the book, have a wonderful week,
