From the pen of J. K. Rowling
When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. She thinks he has gone off by himself for a few days, and she wants Strike to find him. But as Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine's disappearance. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows. If the novel were published it would ruin lives – so there are a lot of people who might want to silence him. And when Quine is found brutally murdered in bizarre circumstances, it becomes a race against time to understand the motivation of a ruthless killer, a killer unlike any he has encountered before . . .
This is a wonderful listen! Once again, talented narrator Robert Glenister ... captures the likable but flawed Strike with a voice as gritty and heavily accented as London's North End. Yet he transitions easily to more refined accents and softer tones to convincingly portray all the memorable characters in this mystery. AudioFile - read the full review here
