When a mysterious package is delivered to Robin Ellacott, she is horrified to discover that it contains a woman’s severed leg.
Her boss, private detective Cormoran Strike, is less surprised but no less alarmed. There are four people from his past who he thinks could be responsible – and Strike knows that any one of them is capable of sustained and unspeakable brutality.
With the police focusing on the one suspect Strike is increasingly sure is not the perpetrator, he and Robin take matters into their own hands, and delve into the dark and twisted worlds of the other three men. But as more horrendous acts occur, time is running out for the two of them…
Career of Evil is the third in the highly acclaimed series featuring private detective Cormoran Strike and his assistant Robin Ellacott. A fiendishly clever mystery with unexpected twists around every corner, it is also a gripping story of a man and a woman at a crossroads in their personal and professional lives.

Career of Evil
Career of Evil is the highly anticipated 3rd novel in the Cormoran Strike detective series written by J.K. Rowling under the pseudonym of Robert Galbraith. Detective Strike's assistant, Robin Ellacott, receives a woman's severed leg in the mail which does not completely alarm Strike as there are 4 people from his military past who could be responsible. The police focus their investigations on the wrong man and Strike and Robin are forced to take matters into their own hands to solve the mystery whilst being at a crossroad with their professional and personal lives. Galbraith writes an unpredictable crime mystery that is full of suspense and will keep you guessing until the end. You are transported further into the lives of Strike and Robin in this novel and see how their relationship develops with the growth of their detective agency. This series is one of the best crime fiction series I have read and I strongly recommend it to lovers of crime fiction and mystery.

If you are looking for a twisting, turning, gripping read than go no further than this book. Cormoran Strike is the most interesting PI I have read since Sherlock Holmes. Their methods of deduction are quite different- Cormoran has none of Holmes' cold intellect- but the sinister nature of the plot keeps you guessing right up until the end.
