The Silkworm 'Teems with sly humour, witty asides and intelligence ... A pleasure to read' TIMES


Now a major BBC drama: The Strike series

When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, she just thinks he has gone off by himself for a few days - as he has done before - and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home.

But as Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine's disappearance than his wife realises. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows. If the novel were published it would ruin lives - so there are a lot of people who might want to silence him.

And when Quine is found brutally murdered in bizarre circumstances, it becomes a race against time to understand the motivation of a ruthless killer, a killer unlike any he has encountered before . . .

A compulsively readable crime novel with twists at every turn, The Silkworm is the second in the highly acclaimed series featuring Cormoran Strike and his determined young assistant Robin Ellacott.

*** The latest book in the thrilling Strike series, LETHAL WHITE is out now! ***

    Love the writing style, suspense, plot. I could empathise with the main characters as in the first book. Couldn't put it down in the end.
  • Fantastic book!

    By Kamdhyrd
    Just brilliant! You can never guess who the killer is, didn't know from either book. I love Cormoran and Robin's relationship. Can't wait to read the next one, although a little disappointed that it costs £10!

    Not impressed. Very unlikely ending especially the taxi.
  • Tedious

    By Nanunanunau
    PI Strike and assistant Robin are engaging in this book. The parts in between are tedious.

    Really enjoyed this, great read, draws you in. Even took note of useful phrases and adjectives to extend my vocabulary (shy admission of an illiterate scientist). More please.
