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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Another triumph…Its darkness is mitigated by its sparkling protagonists.” People
"Career of Evil is the third—and best—novel in the engaging Cormoran Strike private detective series…This perfectly paced mystery is packed with surprises, all of which play out with flawless crime-fiction logic.” USA Today (4/4 stars)
“Her gripping third novel…achieves a new candor about the gap between solving crimes and repairing their damages…an absorbing book, pulpy, fast, and satisfying.” New York Times Book Review
“Hugely entertaining.” Chicago Tribune
“As readable and exciting as ever…Fans of the intrepid duo are in for some shocks.” Telegraph (London)
“Sparklingly witty [and] unexpectedly moving.” Seattle Times
“Rowling’s writing is velvety and fluid, making the book pure pleasure…Clever, tightly plotted mysteries with all of the most pleasurable elements of the genre…but with stunning emotional and moral shading.” NPR
“Robert Glenister is the man in this fine performance of Robert Galbraith’s most recent detective thriller. Having narrated the first two books in the series, Glenister knows the main characters…The real-life pacing and vocal differences between the rough-hewn, older Strike and the younger Ellacott bring their scenes particularly to life. And Glenister’s use of a flattened, even tone for the sections that take place inside the mind of the killer adds chillingly to the tension. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“Maintaining a high level of suspense throughout, Rowling transforms Robin into a professional equal of Strike’s and sets the stage for further complexities in their relationship in the next book.” Publishers Weekly
“The book ends on a cliffhanger worthy of Harry Potter, and Rowling’s readers will eagerly await the next installment.” Kirkus Reviews
