Summary

Winner of the 2016 Audie Mystery Award
Now a major BBC drama as part of the Cormoran Strike series.
When a mysterious package is delivered to Robin Ellacott, she is horrified to discover that it contains a woman's severed leg. Her boss, private detective Cormoran Strike, is less surprised but no less alarmed. There are four people from his past whom he thinks could be responsible - and Strike knows that any one of them is capable of sustained and unspeakable brutality.
With the police focusing on the one suspect Strike is increasingly sure is not the perpetrator, he and Robin take matters into their own hands and delve into the dark and twisted worlds of the other three men. But as more horrendous acts occur, time is running out for the two of them....
A fiendishly clever mystery with unexpected twists around every corner, Career of Evil is also a gripping story of a man and a woman at a crossroads in their personal and professional lives. You will not be able to switch this audiobook off.

Another gripping story.

I enjoyed everything about this story from beginning to end. Everything knitted together like an Arran sweater.

Good but far from the 2 first boks.

It is a good book, unnerving and lots of suspense but I found the relationship between Robin and Strike exagerated a little silly. I really dont understand why they workshop to getter anymore. I also was not very keen on the "ripper" story. To much gore and hate for my taste and the theme is "old".

Great job by the narrator. ..

Amazing as always!

Robert Galbraith (JK Rowling) has keep growing since his first detectives book. His narrative is very graphic, full of descriptions, and the way he carefully knits the story and the characters is so clever and inviting. This is a book for the strong of heart, it has a lot of suspense and as a reader (listener) one gets enough jumping with surprise and disbelieve, a lot of emotional roller coaster and a little emphatic crying. I loved every minute of it, and I will be waiting anxiously for the next Cormoran Strike book!
