“Another triumph . . . Its darkness is mitigated by its sparkling protagonists.”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
After thoroughly enjoying both The Cuckoo’s Calling and the Silkworm, I’ve been eagerly awaiting the release of Galbraith’s third novel Career of Evil. We all now know that J. K. Rowling writes under a pseudonym for this crime series and I can only say her sensational writing style shines through!
I don’t mind admitting I’ve developed a bit of a crush on Cormoran Strike and Career of Evil did nothing at all to quell either my crush, or my love for the series. From the very first chapter this is an unputdownable novel, drawing you through from chapter to chapter in total suspense.
As we head into the third book we now have enough back story to explore it a little and that’s exactly the direction this novel goes into with a murder case that may well be tied to Strike’s past. Is he tying in connections that just aren’t there, or will his hunches amount to the finger pointing in the right place?
