Description for The Silkworm (Cormoran Strike - Old Edition)
An unputdownable tale of malice and murder in a toxic literary world . . . this almost preposterously compulsive page-turner is irresistible summer reading
Teems with sly humour, witty asides and intelligence ... A pleasure to read
A damn good read ... It's a book to gulp down
Galbraith has pulled off a thoroughly enjoyable classic and I'm already looking forward to Strike's next outing
A superb and polished thriller . . . an ingenious whodunit
Pacy, unputdownable . . . I can't wait for the next one
An enticingly macabre whodunit ... taut and believable
You are absolutely carried along ... Well written, exciting
A great detective novel: sharp, immensely readable, warm-hearted but cool-headed ... populated with dozens of memorable characters
Enthralling, not only for its twists and turns, but for the fun of the teamwork
An atmospheric, propulsive narrative
An entertaining novel in which the most compelling characters are not the killer or the victim, but the detectives charged with solving the crime
A pacey detective story ... moreish
Fast-paced and entertaining ... Strike has all kinds of potential. It'd be a crime not to keep up with him
The Silkworm is a deeply satisfying work of crime fiction, more complex and darker than its predecessor
Galbraith brings flair and wit to [his] reflections on the state of contemporary publishing ... [He] takes the existing strengths of the genre and uses them as the building blocks for [his] own considerable storytelling gift, crafting books crammed with memorable characters that make irresistible reading ... There are aspects of the traditional English crime novel reaching right back to the golden age of Christie, Sayers, Allingham and Marsh ... The Cuckoo's Calling was a calling card for a series that has legs
If [Galbraith] had as much fun writing The Silkworm as I did reading it, [he] had a blast
An absorbing puzzle with vivid characters . . . Robert Galbraith deserves the inevitable bestseller
An intelligent and captivating drama driven by fascinatingly real characters. This is storytelling at its very best
Bring on the next one, please ... [Galbraith] writes with wit and affection for detective-novel tradition ... and races us through a twisty plot so smoothly that you won't notice as the hours tick by
A gimlet eye for detail and beautifully crafted plot make it a delight from start to finish, and a perfect summer read
A properly addictive whodunit. And in the unlikely pairing of ungainly Strike and his clever young assistant, Galbraith has created an investigative duo with spark and empathy
The second book in the highly acclaimed crime fiction series by J.K. Rowling, writing under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith.See all Description for The Silkworm (Cormoran Strike - Old Edition)

But that conclusion is reached after we have been dragged rather excessively through personal history of our protagonists, resulting in a star getting dropped.
Otherwise, recommended, for those who appreciate long, deep, nuanced, and literate mysteries.
