When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. Quine has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows. If the novel were to be published, it would ruin lives. That means that there are a lot of people who might want him silenced. When Quine is found brutally murdered, it becomes a race against time to understand the motivation of a ruthless killer, a killer unlike any Strike has encountered before.

This is a disturbingly good story, made even more so by a great narrator. If you've only read it, I recommend checking out the audio for added depth.

A missing writer, a concerned wife and a provocative manuscript = another great audiobook from Robert Galbraith (aka J.K. Rowlings). Cormoran Strike, a rough around the edges private eye navigates through the literary world searching for the absent author whom he discovers in a grizzly death scene (not for the faint of heart). If you are a fan of Ian Rankin's Inspector Rebus, you'll like Cormoran Strike.

Overly grisly and grim. Author seems to have a bone to pick with the publishing industry.
Detective Strike and assistant Robin still great characters but the subject matter in this one is stomach turning and depressing.
