A P.I. And his faithful sidekick are compelled to investigate when a mentally ill young man claims to have seen a child murdered.
Look, I’m a big fan of anything J.K. Rowling puts her hand to, including this series written under the Robert Galbraith pen name. This book, however, might be stretching the friendship. As always, it was a good story woven by an incredibly talented storyteller, but I will admit to struggling through at least the first half of the book. There was a lot going on, a lot of filler that I felt could have been trimmed, and oh my goodness I struggled with Robin not waking up to herself where Matthew was concerned.
I do love Strike and Robin, so it won’t stop me reading the next one, if there ever is a next one, but if that goes the same way I can see myself switching to the screen version only for this series.
