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.

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 realises. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows. If the novel were published it would 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 he has encountered before...

Robert Galbraith is a pseudonym for J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series and The Casual Vacancy.

A thrilling ride
Cormoran Strike and Robin Ellacott return in Silkworm and are tasked with finding a missing writer. The writer's wife is concerned and for good reason. Strike's investigation leads him to something more sinister. Now the police are involved and resentful of his link to this case. Strike must contend with the authorities in order to uncover the truth. At the same time, his ex is sending him texts on the verge of her wedding. He is divided between what was and what could be. Robin too has her attention divided when tragedy strikes. She also begins to see a side to Matthew that she never knew. The pair are taken down a path of intrigue and danger with a hooded figure stalking their investigation. What is the most interesting is Galbraith's choice to withhold information from the reader. Strike has his suspicions of the culprit's identity but the reader isn't privy to it. It allows them to draw their own conclusions. It is a fantastic page turner that hooks you from the beginning.
