The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith
Robert Galbraith is the pseudonym of J.K. Rowling, famous for the Harry Potter Series. In this second entry of this mystery series, private investigator Cormoran Strike is back with his faithful sidekick Robin in a missing persons case. When author Owen Quine goes missing, his wife comes to Cormoran and asks him to find the man. Cormoran quickly finds himself immersed in the world of publishing, where personalities clash and there is no lack of suspects.
I had really liked the first novel "Cuckoo's Calling" in this series and was looking forward to this new book. However, Galbraith could have used some editing. There were a lot of extraneous details and plot lines that added very little to the book and I would have preferred further development of the main characters Robin and Cormoran and their relationship.
