Career of Evil by Robert Galbraith / J.K. Rowling

Publish Date: October 20, 2015
Publisher: Sphere

I really enjoyed the first two Cormoran Strike novels. They're not Harry Potter, obviously, but they're still interesting and a lot of fun.

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…

Career of Evil is the third in the highly acclaimed series featuring private detective Cormoran Strike and his assistant Robin Ellacott. A fiendishly clever mystery with unexpected twists around every corner, it is also a gripping story of a man and a woman at a crossroads in their personal and professional lives.

Cormoran Strike is back, with his assistant Robin Ellacott, in a mystery based around soldiers returning from war.

  3. I have still not started this series. I know, it's terrible, especially as I'm a huge Harry Potter fan. I have been meaning to read it for so long - hopefully I'll catch up before the third book is released!

  4. I love a good detective series, and this one sounds like one I'd enjoy. Thanks for sharing...and here's mine: “THE GOOD GOODBYE”

  5. They're definitely not Harry Potter, but JK is amazing at everything she puts her mind to. Thanks for sharing!

    Happy reading,

  6. I adored HP but for some reason, her new stuff just doesn't speak to me, but regardless, great to hear you have enjoyed so far, and I hope that you get a chance to read it soon

  7. Shockingly, I've never read any of Jo's non-Harry Potter books. Other than Very Good Lives, but I don't really count it. I'm kind of scared to read them, honestly! WHAT IF THEY RUIN THE BEAUTIFUL FACADE OF FLAWLESS JK ROWLING LOVELINESS?!

  8. I'm so glad there is another book in this series - like you I enjoyed the first two books. I don't normally read books in this genre but there is something about these.

  9. New to me but hope that you get a chance to read it soon

  10. Oohhh, I am so excited that the release for this is coming up! I really enjoyed the first two books as well, so this is definitely on my most wanted list!

  11. I didn't realize that it's already up to book #3 lol
