'Deliriously clever' GUARDIAN


Now a major BBC drama: The Strike series

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...

A fiendishly clever mystery with unexpected twists around every corner, Career of Evil is also a gripping story of a man and a woman at a crossroads in their personal and professional lives. You will not be able to put this book down.

Keep writing Strike novels Galbraith and I’ll keep throwing my money at you!

Thought provoking and thrilling from start to finish. Rowling continues to up the ante in the Strike series with a menacing killer who has even Strike and Robin climbing up trees for a while. The unlikely duo however continue to grip me with their quirky relationship and often opposing, but equally incredible approaches to detective work. I can’t wait to see what trouble they become embroiled in next.

A wonderful book

How do you do it JK Rowling, I was glued to the pages and had terrible difficulty doing everyday things as I wanted to get back to reading this book.
Yes sometimes it was grisly and brutal but all in context, loved it
