Waiting On Wednesday #76

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith 
Publication date- June 24th 2014 


Goodreads Summary: 

Private investigator Cormoran Strike returns in a new mystery from Robert Galbraith, author of the #1 international bestseller The Cuckoo's Calling.

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--as he has done before--and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home.

But as Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine's disappearance than his wife realizes. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows. If the novel were to be published, it would ruin lives--meaning that there are a lot of people who might want him silenced.

When Quine is found brutally murdered under bizarre circumstances, it becomes a race against time to understand the motivation of a ruthless killer, a killer unlike any Strike has encountered before...

A compulsively readable crime novel with twists at every turn, THE SILKWORM is the second in the highly acclaimed series featuring Cormoran Strike and his determined young assistant, Robin Ellacott.

I haven't read The Cuckoo's Calling yet, but I hope to do so in time for The Silkworm. I can't wait to get to them both! 

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  7. I gave up on JK's other stories after Casual Vacancy. I'll love HP books forever but anything she writes lately I cannot connect with. I truly hope you'll enjoy book this book and The Cuckoo's Calling. Great pick, Sarika :)
