2014 book 139

Robert Galbraith's The Silkworm
Well, of course this is really J.K. Rowling's The Silkworm, and I liked it just as much as its predecessor. In this one, Cormoran is hired to try and find a missing writer--only to stumble on the writer's grotesquely murdered body. And there are plenty of suspects--besides being something of a womanizer, the writer has also just written a book satirizing several major literary figures. Meanwhile, assistant Robin is chomping at the bit to be doing more real detective work (I really hope we get more of Robin's backstory soon). Really solid writing here, and obviously well-plotted with Rowling at the helm. I totally did not see the end coming and I loved it. A/A-.
