The Silkworm – J. K. Rowling

The Silkworm is a 2014 crime fiction novel written by J. K. Rowling, published under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith. It is the second novel in the series of private investigator Cormoran Strike, and is a sequel to The Cuckoo’s Calling (2013). …

Much like The Cuckoo’s Calling, The Silkworm was met with critical acclaim but, since Rowling’s identity as the series’ author was revealed in early 2013, managed to sell more copies than its predecessor in its opening weeks. …


Both books are good. But Silkworm even better than Cuckoo’s. Strike and his sidekick get more interesting. Rowling does an impressive job of writing from an old, gruff male perspective. Strike is believable.

I’ll certainly continue to read the Strike series. I’m suddenly a crime fiction buff.
