just finished reading...

This is the second installment of Robert Galbraith/JK Rowling's Cormoran Strike series. Definitely a mystery for grown ups. There is atmosphere, violence, and grit. And I couldn't leave it alone until I finished it. I stayed up way past my usual bedtime!

This book is set in the publishing world, and there is much some detail about the editing and promoting novels. There are intriguing and colorful secondary characters although I was most taken with the dynamics between Cormoran and his assistant, Robin Ellacourt. Their personal issues are woven into the story, making me more invested in their success. I don't want to give any spoilers but let me say this is not a cozy mystery. It is a gritty, somewhat graphic, hard boiled detective story. And I loved it! More, more more more!!!!
