"The Silkworm" by Robert Galbraith (aka JK Rowling) coming this June

The announcement came earlier this week of the upcoming release of The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith.  The Silkworm is the follow-up to last year's release The Cuckoo's Calling featuring PI Cormoran Strike and Robin Ellacott, his assistant.  Little, Brown and Company (publishing house) announced the expected release date as June 19/14.

The following is the synopsis provided on Goodreads:

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.

Who's excited out there?

  1. I have never read any of her books. I wonder how well the first in the series would have done had we not found out it was written by J.K. Rowling? She is a prolific writer.
