Publisher Description

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.

Can't Wait

After reading "Cuckoo's Calling", I was hoping J.K. Rowling would continue writing more in this series. I'm so happy she decided to do so, even after it was revealed that she was indeed the author.....have read the 2 novels she's written for the adult market after Harry Potter. Have not been disappointed one bit.

The Silkworm

I just loved the new Galbraith/Rowling novel The Silkworm. The only problem was that I read it too fast. now I'll have to read it again. This a great choice for our first book club book!
