Pre-order 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.
