Praise for "The Silkworm" "THE SILKWORM is a very well-written, wonderfully entertaining take on the traditional British crime novel....Robert Galbraith may proudly join the ranks of English, Scottish and Irish crime writers such as Tana French, Ian Rankin, Val McDermid, John Connolly, Kate Atkinson, and Peter Robinson." "-Harlan Coben, "New York Times Book Review"""
"Robert Galbraith has written a second absorbing whodunit starring detective Cormoran Strike to follow last year's stealth hit, "The Cuckoo's Calling."...Astutely observed, well-paced and full of [Galbraith's] trademark acerbic wit, THE SILKWORM thoroughly engages as a crime novel." "Sue Corbett, "People"""
"A compulsively entertaining yarn." "Thom Geier, "Entertainment Weekly"""
"A great detective novel: sharp, immensely readable, warmhearted but coolheaded....The last line of THE SILKWORM, which will lift the hearts of readers who have come to love its deeply sympathetic characters, offers the prospect of more of that joy both for Galbraith and for us." "Charles Finch, "USA Today"""
"Swift-paced, suspenseful....Robert Galbraith has announced himself a fresh voice in mystery fiction: part hard-boiled, part satiric, part poignant, and part romantic." "Tom Nolan, "Wall Street Journal"""
"Galbraith brings flair and wit to [his] reflections on the state of contemporary publishing....Galbraith takes the existing strengths of the genre and uses them as the building blocks for [his] own considerable storytelling gift, crafting books crammed with memorable characters that make irresistible reading." "Val McDermid, "The Guardian [UK]"""
"Cormoran Strike is back, and so is his resourceful sidekick, Robin Ellacott, a gumshoe team that's on its way to becoming as celebrated for its mystery-solving skills as Nick and Nora Charles of 'Thin Man' fame, and Mikael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander (a.k.a. the girl with the dragon tattoo)....An entertaining novel in which the most compelling characters are not the killer or the victim, but the detectives charged with solving the crime." "Michiko Kakutani, "New York Times"""
"The story is enthralling, not only for its twists and turns, but for the fun of the teamwork....Each chapter draws us further into Cormoran Strike's psyche, and makes us care more not just about the case getting solved, but about Strike being the one to solve it....[They're] a cast of characters who you'll want to meet again and again." "Ashley Ross, "Time"""
"[Galbraith] weaves a pleasurably wicked literary murder mystery with all its attendant aspects of publishing politics, from the peevish to the pompous, into Strike's personal and professional lives....Only two books in, and Galbraith's characters already feel like familiar-and welcome-friends." "Daneet Steffens," Boston Globe"""
"The plot zings along....Swift and satisfying." "Carolyn Kellogg, "Los Angeles Times"""
"THE SILKWORM is fast-paced and entertaining....Strike is heroic without intending to be and has a great back story. He's the illegitimate son of a rock star whose half-siblings grew up in privilege....And he's brooding, but not annoyingly so. Strike has all kinds of potential. It'd be a crime not to keep up with him." "Sherryl Connelly, "New York Daily News"""
"A properly addictive whodunnit. And in the unlikely pairing of ungainly Strike and his clever young assistant, Galbraith has created an investigative duo with spark and empathy." "Isabel Berwick, "Financial Times"""
"The murder mystery at the heart of THE SILKWORM is a genuine mystery with an altogether satisfying resolution....And even if, like me, you don't read mysteries to solve the puzzle but to keep company with the detective on the case...[Galbraith's] not too shabby in the character department either." "Malcolm Jones, Daily Beast""
"Bring on the next one, please....Galbraith writes with wit and affection for detective-novel tradition (it's impossible not to see her central duo as a modern-day Nick and Nora, minus the marriage), and races us through a twisty plot so smoothly that you won't notice as the hours tick by." "Moira Macdonald, "Seattle Times"""
"The Galbraith books have intricately woven plots, conveyed with good humor but underlying darkness....THE SILKWORM is a classic British mystery with a modern sensibility, written with intelligent humor and a very observational eye." "Kathleen Guzzi, "Pittsburgh Post-Gazette"""
"As readable and exciting as ever . . . Fans of the intrepid duo are in for some shocks." Jake Kerridge, "Telegraph [UK]""
""Career of Evil "is the third--and best--novel in the engaging Cormoran Strike private detective series. . . . [Galbraith has] invented a serial killer for the ages, one who chills us from the book's grim but riveting opening. . . . This perfectly paced mystery is packed with surprises, all of which play out with flawless crime-fiction logic." Jocelyn McClurg, "USA Today (4/4 stars)""
"Gripping . . . A step forward for the series . . . An absorbing book, pulpy, fast and satisfying." Charles Finch, "New York Times Book Review""
"Pure pleasure. . . . That's what makes these novels so good: They are clever, tightly plotted mysteries with all of the most pleasurable elements of the genre (good guy, bad guy, clues, twists, murder!), but with stunning emotional and moral shading." Annalisa Quinn, "NPR""
"Hugely entertaining . . . This gifted storyteller has taken full command of the new turf. . . . "Career of Evil "succeeds powerfully on its own terms." Lloyd Sachs, "Chicago Tribune""
"Another triumph . . . Its darkness is mitigated by its sparkling protagonists." Kim Hubbard, "People""
"Strike and Robin are just as magnetic as ever." Michiko Kakutani, "New York Times""
"Bloody good . . . The author's trademark plotting has lost none of its propulsive readability." Daneet Steffens, "Boston Globe""
"A refreshing change to the genre . . . Every bit as impressive as ["The Cuckoo's Calling"] . . . Let's hope the sardonic Cormoran Strike is here to stay." Barry Forshaw, "Independent [UK]""
"An entertaining novel . . . The denouement is violent, unexpected and satisfying." Marcel Berlins, "The Times [UK]""
"A deliriously clever plot" Christobel Kent, "Guardian [UK]""
"Satisfying . . . Strike and Robin are as powerful a fictional pairing as any in recent memory. . . . Galbraith demonstrates a breezy command of the intricacies of both the central mystery and of the form itself." Robert Wiersema, "Toronto Star""
"Sparklingly witty [and] unexpectedly moving" Moira Macdonald, "Seattle Times""
When a mysterious package is delivered to Robin Ellacott, she is horrified to discover that it contains a woman's severed leg.
Her boss, private detective Cormoran Strike, is less surprised but no less alarmed. There are four people from his past who he thinks could be responsible--and Strike knows that any one of them is capable of sustained and unspeakable brutality.
With the police focusing on the one suspect Strike is increasingly sure is not the perpetrator, he and Robin take matters into their own hands, and delve into the dark and twisted worlds of the other three men. But as more horrendous acts occur, time is running out for the two of them...
"Career of Evil" is the third in the highly acclaimed series featuring private detective Cormoran Strike and his assistant Robin Ellacott. A fiendishly clever mystery with unexpected twists around every corner, it is also a gripping story of a man and a woman at a crossroads in their personal and professional lives.
