This is the third novel in the Cormoran Strike series. Galbraith is a pen name for J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter books. In this novel we learn more of Strike’s and his secretary, now partner, Robin Ellacott’s background. A package is delivered to Robin at the office in London of their detective agency which Robin assumes to contain favors for her upcoming wedding to Matthew. Instead there is a severed woman’s leg. Strike is convinced that one of three dangerous, violent men from his past has sent the gruesome package. Rowling shows here that she can write suspense novels as well as she has written about the fantasy world of Harry Potter.
