Silkworm - Robert Galbraith

This book is the second in a new mystery series by J.K. Rowling writing under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith. We again follow Private Detective Cormoran Strike as he solves the murder of a celebrity, although this time around the murdered character was not very well known but rather catapulted to fame by his gory and symbolic murder. 

Much as in Cuckoo’s Calling, Strike begins his investigation on the urging of a character that no one else will believe and fearlessly continues his increasingly dangerous quest for the truth. Rowling continues to impress for adult readers, especially those who grew up reading Harry Potter books. The plot is set up so well I remained glued to my seat throughout the beginning of the book, a feeling which only intensified as the story went on. What I love about the Cormoran Strike novels is that Rowling truly leaves you guessing: up until the murderer is revealed, it could be many of the characters. The 'big reveal' of the murderer happens all at once in a blast of mayhem.

If you want a murder mystery book that is thrilling and gory and set in modern day London, this book is for you.
