The Silkworm

Cover: 'The Silkworm'

Staff Review: "The Silkworm" by Robert Galbraith


Writing under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith, "Harry Potter" authoress J.K. Rowling brings us this second book about private detective Cormoran Strike and his assistant Robin Ellacott. As their search for missing author Owen Quine turns into a sadistic murder, perhaps as retaliation against Quine's libelous unpublished book, Strike and Robin also grow closer as they deal with personal difficulties. Though perhaps not a novel for the faint of stomach, this novel is an intellectual and exciting read that demonstrates Rowling's depth and breadth as a writer.
