The Silkworm

When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, Mrs. Quine just thinks her husband has gone off by himself for a few days – something he’s done many times in the past – and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home.

Unfortunately, as Strike investigates, he discovers that Quine’s disappearance is part of something much more sinister. The novelist has just completed a manuscript full of nasty commentary on many of his publishing industry contemporaries AND those in his personal life.

If the novel gets published, it would ruin lives and reputations – meaning that almost everyone he knows has a motive to kill him. When Quine is found brutally murdered, Strike will have to race against time to understand the motivation of a ruthless killer unlike any he’s encountered before.
