The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith (J K Rowling)

The SilkwormThe second Cormoran Strike private eye novel, assisted by Robin his secretary cum assistant.

Strike is called in by the wife of a missing author Owen Quine whom she wants him to find. Quine has just completed a novel in which he has made most of the people he knows poisonous characters & exposed their secrets. Then he’s made sure they all get to read it before publication.

The characters in the story are a peculiar lot, brilliantly portrayed. So much that I ended up not liking a lot of them.

This is not for the squeamish as there are several passages describing gruesome stuff – don’t want to say what or it’ll spoil the plot for you & make me feel queasy again!

Personal stuff for both Strike & Robin affect the way they tackle the case.

There is misdirection everywhere, you think you’ve got the hang of it, then it changes. Twists and turns right to the end & plenty of snow!
