Book Review: “The Silkworm” by Robert Galbraith

Silkworm

Robert Galbraith's first novel enjoyed great financial and critical success even before he turned out to be J. K. Rowling, she of the Harry Potter series.

I think it is as scintillating as the first installment, and if you'll forgive the slight spoiler, I look forward to following what promises to be an ongoing series. Read More »

Yet, perhaps surprisingly, he is a very determined, methodical investigator. He has a special gift for drawing answers out of people who don't want to be questioned. And when he looks at the evidence of a celebrity death that the police declared to be suicide, he sees a different picture emerge. Read More »
