About the book
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.

Read Review   Want to write a review?
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
A gimlet eye for detail and beautifully crafted plot make it a delight from start to finish, and a perfect summer read
The Silkworm is a deeply satisfying work of crime fiction, more complex and darker than its predecessor
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
An intelligent and captivating drama driven by fascinatingly real characters. This is storytelling at its very best
An absorbing puzzle with vivid characters . . . Robert Galbraith deserves the inevitable bestseller
If [Galbraith] had as much fun writing The Silkworm as I did reading it, [he] had a blast
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
Fast-paced and entertaining ... Strike has all kinds of potential. It'd be a crime not to keep up with him
A pacey detective story ... moreish
An entertaining novel in which the most compelling characters are not the killer or the victim, but the detectives charged with solving the crime
An atmospheric, propulsive narrative
Enthralling, not only for its twists and turns, but for the fun of the teamwork
A great detective novel: sharp, immensely readable, warm-hearted but cool-headed ... populated with dozens of memorable characters
You are absolutely carried along ... Well written, exciting
An enticingly macabre whodunit ... taut and believable
Pacy, unputdownable . . . I can't wait for the next one
A superb and polished thriller . . . an ingenious whodunit
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
A damn good read ... It's a book to gulp down
Teems with sly humour, witty asides and intelligence ... A pleasure to read
An unputdownable tale of malice and murder in a toxic literary world . . . this almost preposterously compulsive page-turner is irresistible summer reading
