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 who 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...
Career of Evil is the third in the highly acclaimed series featuring private detective Cormoran Strike and his assistant Robin Ellacott. A fiendishly clever mystery with unexpected twists around every corner, it is also a gripping story of a man and a woman at a crossroads in their personal and professional lives.

    I was so eager to get my hands on this book after finishing Galbriaths other 2 enrapturing mysteries, and I was every bit as pleased and more with Career of Evil. You're at the very forefront of a relentless killer and the enigmatic relationship between the crime solving protagonists.. trying desperately to pick up and place the clues laid out before you and hoping to solve this mystery before it unfolds, you never do and you sweetly suffer on your toes fascinated by this worthy page turner. 🙌🏼🙌🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
  • Love them all!

    Another disappointing book from the woman who wrote the great Harry Potter series. This story dealt with a serial killer who committed gruesome crimes, yet the author failed to deal at all with his motive for doing so. The detective and his sidekick spent the entirety of the book chasing after three different suspects, but instead of meaningful action we are given irrelevant detail such as street names, restaurants, and a side story of attraction between the two major characters which was no more than a tease. And really, does the hero need to chain smoke in this enlightened time? I found the book to be very boring and the ending a huge disappointment. I had to force myself to plod through this seemingly endless tale. J.K. Rowling, where is the genius you displayed in the Potter series? Alas, I fear it has left you!
  • There must be a fourth!

    I read all three in the series, starting the next right as I finished the last. I'm going to have a lonely weekend now without Cormoran and Robin, and I'll miss Shankar as well. There must be a 4th!
  • Best book ever.

    This series is the best I have ever read. It is so wonderfully written. J.K has done it yet again. My only regret is that there isn't more to read.
  • Strike Three

    By BrianM8614
    Third in J.K. Rowlings' Cormoran Strike series. Drags a bit in the middle, but recovers with a satisfying ending. What's up with Robin?
  • Lacked tension

    By Aoed
    Story was too confusing and the plot jumped around. Not very scary or suspenseful at all.
  • Career of Evil - tightly plotted...& a twist I never saw coming!

    By Papjj
    This series has been supremely satisfying to me, and CofE doesn't disappoint. It's a perfect balance of maze-like, yet logical plotting, and just enough personal insight into the characters to make the whole story very three-dimensional, which causes this reader to become very invested in both the action and the people involved. I've read so many murder mysteries/procedurals by so many authors that I usually can see a "hidden" clue or plot twist coming a mile away, but this book sprang one on me that I totally did NOT suspect! Brilliant!! And the end - one of the best cliffhangers I've come upon, possibly ever! I'll be grinding my teeth in frustrated anticipation till the first moment I can get my hands on the NEXT one. By the way, if you love reading series, you really should start w the first two books. This one can stand alone, but it's much better if you've read the others. Hurry up, Robert - I mean JK.
  • Great read
