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.

Review:

An unputdownable tale of malice and murder in a toxic literary world . . . this almost preposterously compulsive page-turner is irresistible summer reading (Sunday Times)

Teems with sly humour, witty asides and intelligence ... A pleasure to read (The Times)

A damn good read ... It's a book to gulp down (Telegraph)

Galbraith has pulled off a thoroughly enjoyable classic and I'm already looking forward to Strike's next outing (Peter James, Sunday Express)

A superb and polished thriller . . . an ingenious whodunit (Sunday Mirror)

Pacy, unputdownable . . . I can't wait for the next one (Daily Express)

An enticingly macabre whodunit ... taut and believable (Metro)

You are absolutely carried along ... Well written, exciting (Front Row, BBC Radio 4)

A great detective novel: sharp, immensely readable, warm-hearted but cool-headed ... populated with dozens of memorable characters (USA Today)

Enthralling, not only for its twists and turns, but for the fun of the teamwork (Time Magazine)
