The Silkworm Robert Galbraith read online review & book description:

In this "wonderfully entertaining" mystery (Harlan Coben, The New York Times Book Review), private investigator Cormoran Strike must track down a missing writer -- and a sinister killer bent on destruction.

When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, Mrs. Quine just thinks her husband has gone off by himself for a few days -- as he has done before -- and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home.
But as Strike investigates, he discovers that Quine's disappearance is no coincidence. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows. If the novel were published, it would ruin lives -- meaning that almost everyone in his life would have motives to silence him.
When Quine is found brutally murdered under bizarre circumstances, Strike must race against time to understand the motivation of a ruthless killer, a killer unlike any he has encountered before . . .
A compulsively readable crime novel with twists at every turn, The Silkworm is the second in J. K. Rowling's highly acclaimed series featuring Cormoran Strike and his determined young assistant, Robin Ellacott.

    I got this book thinking it would be great because JK Rowling had written it. Boy was I wrong! This was, by far, THE WORST book I have ever wasted my time on! If I could have given it a negative rating, I would have. Very disjointed with a lot of meaningless verbiage which felt like it was added just to increase the length of the book. Very disappointed.

    Excellent read. It was hard to follow all of the characters with all of the references to the imaginary book, BUT I couldn’t put it down. Interesting plot twists. Highly recommend “The Silkworm”!

    Thoroughly enjoyed it. Plots within plots and a very surprising ending. With 100 pages left I could not put it down. One of THE best Books of this genre I’ve read in years. I could Not put it down as the plot unfolded

    Reading this book was a pleasurable experience. A master writer, "Galbraith" develops characters and drops hints throughout the book that still led to a surprise ending. If you deign to read this book at intervals, you better wait until you have uninterrupted time because this THE SILKWORM is a page-turner.

    Characters are vivid and relatable. Mystery is engaging, grotesque and labyrinthine though it all adds up. Great read but it does drag a bit in the middle.
  • Good read !
