The Cormoran Strike Series is my favorite Crime/Murder/Mystery Series out there. Written by Robert Galbraith, these novels pull you into the fast paced life of ex-Military Policeman Cormoran Stike. He is a hard but somehow relate-able man whose past experiences have trained him to be the perfect PI.
Robert pulls you in with a seemly simple job for Cormoran that grows into a web of mystery that keeps the pages turning.
I highly recommend you go out and get a copy for yourself. You will not be disappointed
When a troubled model falls to her death from a snow-covered Mayfair balcony, it is assumed that she has committed suicide. However, her brother has his doubts, and calls in private investigator Cormoran Strike to look into the case.
Strike is a war veteran – wounded both physically and psychologically – and his life is in disarray. The case gives him a financial lifeline, but it comes at a personal cost: the more he delves into the young model’s complex world, the darker things get – and the closer he gets to terrible danger . . .
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…
With the police focusing on the one suspect Strike is increasingly sure is notthe perpetrator, he and Robin take matters into their own hands, and delve into the dark and twisted worlds of the other three men. But as more horrendous acts occur, time is running out for the two of them…
