What Book's Up, Buttercup?

A Book About Books ~ The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith ~ @bookdout #ecleticreader

on April 20, 2016

In The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith (aka JK Rowling), we once again find ourselves with Cormoran Strike, a private detective, and his assistant Robin. They have gotten much success and notoriety after solving the Lula Landry case. The two have been asked by Leonora Quine to find her husband Owen. Owen is quite eccentric, as is Leonora, and is known to go off for periods of time, but this case has been different. The Quines also have a daughter, Orlando, who has special needs.

Owen Quine is an author who has caused quite a stir in the past few days. He wrote a book that was not reviewed carefully by his editor, and has been given to several people in the publishing industry. It is a novel that reads like an exposĂ©, thinly veiling it’s disgust, anger, and other unpleasant feelings to those same individuals in the publishing industry and Quine’s life. Many people are upset about this new novel, and a few have even gone as far as to call upon lawyers.

When Owen Quine is finally found, it is not as Leonora would have wished. Strike and Robin are now out and about to find a person, or people, who are so sick and vile that they would have gone to extreme measures to try and silence Owen forever.

This was a great mystery and I was surprised by how graphic it actually was, considering the author. That did not bother me in the slightest. I loved this book, and feel that “Galbraith” is really growing as an author. To see Rowling’s early works and read this, you can really feel that there is more experience there. I cannot wait to read the latest Career of Evil. I recommend this book to anyone who loves a good mystery and will be guessing until the very end. 5 shiny gold stars!!!
