Book Review: “The Silkworm” by Robert Galbraith

Genre: Thriller / Mystery


Since solving the Lula Landry case in the last book, Cormoran Strike’s private detective agency is overflowing with customers. On the one hand, it is nice to be able to pay the bills, but, on the other hand, Cormoran and Robin are super busy with hardly anytime to breath.

Cormoran is even talking about hiring help.

Leaving the employ of a particularly obnoxious client, Cormoran picks up another client immediately.

Leonora Quine’s husband has been missing for 10 days which is longer than his normal number of days when he takes off (he is a strange bird). Leonora is worried, but, she does not want the police involved since Owen came back the last time she did and the police did not like that….and neither did Owen.

To add to Leonora’s stress is that Owen helps her care for their mentally disabled daughter, Orlando, and her neighbor, Edna, is feeling the strain of watching Orlando.

With no assurance of payment, Cormoran takes the case.

Owen is a writer of some minor repute. He writes really weird books, and has just finished his latest book which he thinks will be a best seller.

But now he is gone and no one knows where he is and no one has heard from him.

Not to fear…..Cormoran and Robin are on the case, but, they have absolutely no idea how complicated, horrible, and dangerous this case will turn out to be……or even if….

…..they can survive….

To see what happens, you will have to read the book. 🙂

“The Silkworm” is a fun, fast, gory, read from the warped mind of J. K. Rowling writing as Robert Galbraith. This is book #2 in the Cormoran Strike series, and, I’m loving the relationship between Cormoran and Robin….they are quite the Dynamic Duo. 😉
