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.

This is a disturbingly good story, made even more so by a great narrator. If you've only read it, I recommend checking out the audio for added depth.

A missing writer, a concerned wife and a provocative manuscript = another great audiobook from Robert Galbraith (aka J.K. Rowlings). Cormoran Strike, a rough around the edges private eye navigates through the literary world searching for the absent author whom he discovers in a grizzly death scene (not for the faint of heart). If you are a fan of Ian Rankin's Inspector Rebus, you'll like Cormoran Strike.

Overly grisly and grim. Author seems to have a bone to pick with the publishing industry.
Detective Strike and assistant Robin still great characters but the subject matter in this one is stomach turning and depressing.
