The Silkworm

Cover: 'The Silkworm'

Staff Review: "The Silkworm" by Robert Galbraith


In the second installment of the Cormoran Strike series, we again meet Strike and his assistant Robin, who are called to find a missing novelist that has wandered before. Owen Quine is a generally disliked man whose latest novel is causing an uproar before it's even published, and Strike soon discovers his disappearance will not be an easy investigation. In Galbraith's usual excellent writing that always takes me right to the streets of London as soon as I open the book, we follow an intricate chase to find a killer. I loved this novel even more than the first in the series, thoroughly enjoying Strike and Robin's camaraderie and adventure.
