On November 9, 2015

careerofevilBy Sophia Whitfield

Career of Evil is the third book in the series by Robert Galbraith (JK Rowling). It features flawed detective Cormoran Strike who has been relegated to running his own unsuccessful detective agency. But after his recent case received high profile attention things had been looking up. That is until an unwanted gift arrives for his assistant and sparks the worst kind of media attention.

In his small detective agency, he employs just one person, his assistant Robin. When a motorbike courier drops off a large parcel addressed to Robin, she opens it up without hesitation. Inside the box is a female’s right leg, the same leg that Strike had amputated. The similarity between his own leg and that of the victims means Strike is sure the person who is killing and sending body parts to his lovely assistant must be someone in his past that holds a grudge.

Strike now feels Robin is in danger and is keen to protect her from harm. Together Strike and Robin attempt to solve the mysterious case while working on two other cases that are bringing in money. They traverse the country, from the well-heeled Saatchi Gallery on the King’s Road, to lap dancing clubs on Tottenham Court Road and suburban Finchley.

The police are understandably not happy about Strike’s interference with their own investigation; leave Strike and Robin with little support to solve the case. Both have their own personal dramas unfolding in the background as they search for a killer.

A thrilling read full of richly drawn characters. Buy the book here.
