Synopsis

Career of Evil by Robert Galbraith

When a mysterious package is delivered to Robin Ellacott, she is horrified to discover that it contains a woman's severed leg. Her boss, private detective Cormoran Strike, is less surprised but no less alarmed. There are four people from his past who he thinks could be responsible - and Strike knows that any one of them is capable of sustained and unspeakable brutality. With the police focusing on the one suspect Strike is increasingly sure is not the perpetrator, he and Robin take matters into their own hands, and delve into the dark and twisted worlds of the other three men. But as more horrendous acts occur, time is running out for the two of them...

Reviews

Quirkily different... let's hope the sardonic Strike is here to stay Independent The denouement is violent, unexpected and satisfying ... [an] entertaining novel The Times Fans of the intrepid duo are in for some shocks ... as readable and exciting as ever Daily Telegraph A confident hold on a deliriously clever plot Guardian A page-turner with legs that will keep you up all night Observer Thoroughly enjoyable Mail on Sunday Criminally good stuff Sun [A] smart and addictive thriller Sunday Mirror A book that abounds with ideas Scotland on Sunday This one gripped Evening Standard Oozes atmosphere ... a rollicking good story Metro The real joy of this series comes from the originality of the characters Morning Star Robert Galbraith ... again demonstrates that rare, inexplicable and indefinable gift: once started, one simply can't put [his] books down Literary Review Strike is a compelling creation ... this is terrifically entertaining stuff Irish Times


About the Author

Robert Galbraith is married with two sons. After several years with the Royal Military Police, he was attached to the SIB (Special Investigation Branch), the plain-clothes branch of the RMP. He left the military in 2003 and has been working since then in the civilian security industry. The idea for protagonist Cormoran Strike grew directly out of his own experiences and those of his military friends who have returned to the civilian world. Robert Galbraith is a pseudonym.
