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.

  • Silkworm

    From Kyzar67
    Slow doesn't hold my interest. Tooooo much time spent on trivial, uninteresting details.
  • The Silkworm

    From Manawakian
    Take out the detailed descriptions of Strike's travels on foot, by bus, subway, train and car, the problems with his leg, his living conditions and the gloomy London weather and this 450 page book would shrink to half. Having enjoyed Cuckoo Calling was looking forward to this but found it tiresome reading.
