I am not a fan of the legendary Harry Potter. I only read the first book and realised that I wasn't into it. But when J.K. Rowling transformed herself into Robert Galbraith and introduced her private detective, Cormoran Strike in The Cuckoo's Calling, I fell for it. I have never read any crime stories for quite a long time and this criminal story brought back my old memory about Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple in Agatha Christie's books.

In her latest book, The Silkworm, the author again tells us about her private detective, Cormoran Strike and his assistant, Robin Ellacott, dealing with a new case about a missing novelist, Owen Quine. The case is even more interesting for me since the plot is related to author, publisher, competitor, haters and also mistress. Following the detective's investigation, compiling the facts and evidence and finally starting to take a guess about the killer suspect turned out to be super exciting. Good for my brain exercise, lol. If you miss crime series book, this Cormoran Strike series won't disappoint you.
