The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith UK cover

Last year, the announcement that Robert Galbraith is a pseudonym for J.K. Rowling introduced a wave of readers to the disgruntled private detective, Cormoran Strike, who returns in The Silkworm. Our favourite one-legged detective is approached by Leonora Quine, who hires Cormoran to find her husband, Owen, who has been missing for over a week. Owen is a writer, and an unreliable one at that, frequently disappearing to work on manuscripts or to try and garner more publicity. This is the longest he has been away, and Leonora is running…

When feelings finally come to the surface, will Cora find everything she desires or will she be left to pick up the pieces?
