9780751549263: The Silkworm: 2

When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, she just thinks he 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, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine's disappearance than his wife realises. 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 - so there are a lot of people who might want to silence him.

And when Quine is found brutally murdered in bizarre circumstances, it becomes a 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 the highly acclaimed series featuring Cormoran Strike and his determined young assistant Robin Ellacott.

Recensione:

An unputdownable tale of malice and murder in a toxic literary world . . . this almost preposterously compulsive page-turner is irresistible summer reading ( Sunday Times)

Teems with sly humour, witty asides and intelligence ... A pleasure to read ( The Times)

A damn good read ... It's a book to gulp down ( Telegraph)

Huge credit is due to Galbraith in portraying [Strike] so vividly . . . Galbraith has pulled off a thoroughly enjoyable classic and I'm already looking forward to Strike's next outing ( Peter James, Sunday Express)

A superb and polished thriller . . . an ingenious whodunit ( Sunday Mirror)

Pacy, unputdownable . . . I can't wait for the next one ( Daily Express)

An enticingly macabre whodunit ... taut and believable ( Metro)

You are absolutely carried along ... Well written, exciting ( Front Row, BBC Radio 4)

A great detective novel: sharp, immensely readable, warm-hearted but cool-headed ... populated with dozens of memorable characters ( USA Today)

Enthralling, not only for its twists and turns, but for the fun of the teamwork ( Time Magazine)

An atmospheric, propulsive narrative ( Metro)

An entertaining novel in which the most compelling characters are not the killer or the victim, but the detectives charged with solving the crime ( New York Times)

A pacey detective story ... moreish ( Independent)

Fast-paced and entertaining ... Strike has all kinds of potential. It'd be a crime not to keep up with him ( Daily News)

Galbraith brings flair and wit to [his] reflections on the state of contemporary publishing ... [He] takes the existing strengths of the genre and uses them as the building blocks for [his] own considerable storytelling gift, crafting books crammed with memorable characters that make irresistible reading ... There are aspects of the traditional English crime novel reaching right back to the golden age of Christie, Sayers, Allingham and Marsh ... The Cuckoo's Calling was a calling card for a series that has legs ( Val McDermid, Guardian)

If [Galbraith] had as much fun writing The Silkworm as I did reading it, [he] had a blast ( LA Times)

An absorbing puzzle with vivid characters . . . Robert Galbraith deserves the inevitable bestseller ( Scotland on Sunday)

An intelligent and captivating drama driven by fascinatingly real characters. This is storytelling at its very best ( Heat)

Bring on the next one, please ... [Galbraith] writes with wit and affection for detective-novel tradition ... and races us through a twisty plot so smoothly that you won't notice as the hours tick by ( Seattle Times)

The Silkworm is a deeply satisfying work of crime fiction, more complex and darker than its predecessor ( The Australian)

A gimlet eye for detail and beautifully crafted plot make it a delight from start to finish, and a perfect summer read ( Daily Mail)

A properly addictive whodunit. And in the unlikely pairing of ungainly Strike and his clever young assistant, Galbraith has created an investigative duo with spark and empathy ( Financial Times)
