Cormoran Strike was hired to look for
a missing author,Owen Quine, by the author's wife. Soon things turned sinister and heated up as
Strike go on with the investigation. There was even an attempt on his life.|
What I like about this book is that Robin, his assistant, is taking a more active part in the story. I love her character and starting to dislike her fiance, Matthew. Love the chemistry between Strike and Robin.
What I dislike about this book is that though everyone seems to have reason(s) to want the author, Owen, to disappear but their reasons seems to be shaky and muddled. I did not feel the thrill of the investigation. Not much digging done. More like both Strike and Robin go from one person to another a listened . From there Strike made a judgement and found the culprit. Feel it's lack of "umph" factor.
Nevertheless it's a good second suspense book from the author.
