The Silkworm – Robert Galbraith

It’s been a busy 6 months for Denmark Street duo Private Detective Cormoran Strike and his PA-Assistant Robin Ellacott, with plenty of customers attracted to the rock-star’s-illegitimate-son-cum-smarter-than-the-Met solver of the Lula Landry case. Most of them are rich people wanting to keep hold of their riches, usually at risk from lovers or spouses, or simply themselves… and so it comes as no surprise that Cormoran agrees to take on a missing person case when the wife of niche novelist Owen Quine asks Cormoran to track down her wandering spouse and to get him to return home.

In this second encounter with Cormoran Strike we meet more of his friends, and see more developments in his and Robin’s working relationship, and the parallel rocky relationship between Robin and her fiancé, Matthew.
