The Silkworm

The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith 
           455 pages

Cormoran Strike is back, with his assistant Robin.  Life is a little better for Strike, he has more work and is certainly better off financially than we left him in the last book.  In this book, he has decided to take on a case involving a missing writer, Owen Quine.  Quine’s wife came to Strike, asking for him to take on the case, assuring him that his agent would foot the bill.  Despite his misgivings about the money, Strike agreed to take on the case.  What he found was that Quine had just written a manuscript that had made everyone in his immediate circle very angry, as he had demonized nearly everyone he knew, including his publisher, editor, agent, wife, and girlfriend.  As Strike questions people, he realizes that not everything adds up the way it should, but it’s up to him to figure out the truth before an innocent person is sent to prison.  I really liked this sequel and am looking forward to more books in the series.  I think that most murder mystery fans would probably like this series.
