Career of Evil by Robert Galbraith


The third in the series and this one takes a bit of a dark plunge. Robin receives a severed leg in the mail, and this is the start of what becomes a hunt for a serial killer linked to Strike’s past. I’m fond of series and enjoyed the more in-depth look at Robin’s past and her character. We discover a little more about why she stays with her awful fiancé. The levels of misogynistic violence are high and some scenes are disturbingly described from the killer’s point of view. He also stalks Robin, bent on revenge against Strike. The writing is great as usual, and the climactic end doesn’t disappoint in the slightest!

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…A fiendishly clever mystery with unexpected twists around every corner, Career of Evil is also a gripping story of a man and a woman at a crossroads in their personal and professional lives. You will not be able to put this book down.
