Troubled Blood – Robert Galbraith

More detective-ing by Cormoran Strike and Robin Ellacott, this time in and around Clerkenwell with occasional trips to Cornwall and elsewhere.

References to Robin using her “iPod” and “Oyster card” threw me for quite some time, until I twigged that it’s set in 2014. Even so, those still don’t sound right to me.

Also the paperback clocks in at over 1000 pages. Not easy wrangling a book that big in bed. So I’m glad I got to spend Spring Bank Holiday Monday reading it in the lounge. Thankfully it is a real page turner.
