The fifth in Robert Galbraith/JK Rowling’s Cormoran Strike series. Yeah, I know, the sheer length of the book is intimidating, but I found this one the best of the five. The two leads move their relationship and their relationships with their families forward, two creepy villains, and the cold case plot is excellent, with a terrific red herring saved up for the very end. Very few crime fiction novels featuring PIs include multiple cases and it is also fun to watch Strike, Robin, and the rest of the agency working their other cases alongside the main one. It feels much more realistic.
