From the publisher: "When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, Mrs. Quine just thinks her husband has gone off by himself for a few days. But as Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine's disappearance than his wife realizes." I love this series, but proceed with caution: there are some pretty gruesome descriptions. I did a lot of skimming to get through the grisly parts. (This wasn't the case with The Cuckoo's Calling.) Add Audible narration for $12.99.

The Cuckoo’s Calling

The Cuckoo’s Calling

$9.99$3.99Audiobook: 12.99 (Audible)

In this murder mystery, British detective Cormoran Strike and his trusty sidekick Robin Ellacott investigate a supermodel's suspicious suicide. I found the plot compellingly twisty, the characters interesting, the rapport between the two investigators my favorite part. For Harry Potter fans, there's good news and bad news: Rowling (under the pseudonym Galbraith) still has the touch, but there is nothing to remind you of Harry in these stories. The third (and grizzliest) book Career of Evil, published October 20, 2015, ended on a massive cliffhanger, and readers are impatiently awaiting book 4, which Rowling promises will begin right where she left us hanging. First-rate murder mysteries; highly recommended for Louise Penny fans.

Career of Evil
Lethal White

Lethal White

From the publisher: "Lethal White is the fourth book in the Cormoran Strike series and the most epic Robert Galbraith novel yet. When Billy, a troubled young man, comes to private eye Cormoran Strike's office to ask for his help investigating a crime he thinks he witnessed as a child, Strike is left deeply unsettled. While Billy is obviously mentally distressed, and cannot remember many concrete details, there is something sincere about him and his story. But before Strike can question him further, Billy bolts from his office in a panic. Trying to get to the bottom of Billy's story, Strike and Robin Ellacott-once his assistant, now a partner in the agency-set off on a twisting trail that leads them through the backstreets of London, into a secretive inner sanctum within Parliament, and to a beautiful but sinister manor house deep in the countryside. Strike's newfound fame as a private eye means he can no longer operate behind the scenes as he once did."
