Career of Evil by Robert Galbraith aka JK Rowling; 497 pages
Business is starting to pick up for Strike and Robin. That is until Robin receives a severed leg in the mail. Now Strike must try to determine who in his past is out to get him. And Robin needs to watch her back… Whoever is out to get Strike is planning on using her to do it.
Another masterpiece by Rowling. While this one was not as good as the first two books in the series it was still a nail biter and absolutely thrilling. Part of the novel follows the man out to get Strike so you know where he is and what it is he is thinking throughout the book and it leaves you on the edge of your seat.
I thought there was less action in this book than the last one, along with there being less detective-ing in this book. There was a lot more focus on relationships and the history of both characters throughout the book. Not a bad thing, you really get to know a lot more about Strike and Robin throughout the book.
I did feel like there was something missing from the book but I cannot quite put my finger on it. Maybe it was the lack of action and detective work I mentioned before but I do not think that was it. That being said, I was unable to give the book 5 stars because I felt that there was an element missing from it.
