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.

This is the acclaimed third crime novel by J.K. Rowling, writing under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith. The novels in the series so far are, in order: Cuckoo's CallingThe SilkwormCareer of Evil and 2018's Lethal White.

“Gripping.”

The third Cormoran Strike novel and the best so far. Absolutely gripping with some great misdirection by Galbraith/Rowling and a heck of an ending .
Looking forward to Book 4 .
