Career of Evil by Robert Galbraith

"The severed tibia shone icy white against the surrounding flesh"

The latest outing of Cormoran Strike by J K Rowling's altar-ego is a thriller that creeps up on you. I admit to being quite the fan of the sleuthing team of Cormoran and Robin. Having his young detective partner under threat of both marriage and dismemberment makes for a gripping read. I was prompted to pace through the pages and forego sleep just to discover the denouement and once again, I want more.

A one legged detective can gain some strange fans on the internet. Particularly those seeking similar disfigurement and who suspect that Mr Strike might have cut off his own leg. The no-nonsence ex-military man will soon put them straight on that account.

Rowling has an enviable talent for pumping out entertaining fiction and this is no exception. Let's hope she continues along the same vein.

5 out of 5 weddings are a kind of murder.
