Step back into the shadows of the undercover world of private eye Cormoran Strike, as Robert Galbraith returns with the 4th novel in the bestselling detective series.

When a client with a troubled past goes missing, his story leads Strike and his newly invested partner Robin Ellacott into a labyrinthine hunt for answers. As their investigation takes them into the heart of a covert Parliament sanctum and to a beautiful and sinister country manor, it’s not only a mystery they must confront but their own relationship.
