This is the second book in the Cormoran Strike series by J. K. Rowling aka Robert Galbraith.
These novels are the perfect mix of utter messed up bit and touching bits that balance everything out. Her writing is perfect (as always) and The Silkworm was very hard to put down. I spend the better part of a day lounging around my house finishing the book.
This book is about private detective Cormoran Strike who is investigating a missing person case only to have it turn into murder. I found the mystery to be hard, as in I couldn't figure it out at all before the end. I did find a few red herrings that succeeded in throwing me off though, which I love. I love to be always guessing. I loved the character development of Robin Ellacott and Cormoran Strike. I find them totally easy to relate to and I am very excited to read what happens next.
I will say that I kind of enjoyed this mystery better than the first one, but her writing style is just so awesome that I find myself drawn in no matter what the story is about. I think these books to deserve all the praise they get.
Recommendation: For fans of J.K. Rowling's writing and for all mystery lovers out there, this one is for you.
