In the epic fifth installment in this “compulsively readable” (People) series, Galbraith’s “irresistible hero and heroine” (USA Today) take on the decades-old cold case of a missing doctor, one which may be their grisliest yet.

Private Detective Cormoran Strike is visiting his family in Cornwall when he is approached by a woman asking for help finding her mother, Margot Bamborough—who went missing in mysterious circumstances in 1974.
Strike has never tackled a cold case before, let alone one forty years old. But despite the slim chance of success, he is intrigued and takes it on; adding to the long list of cases that he and his partner in the agency, Robin Ellacott, are currently working on. And Robin herself is also juggling a messy divorce and unwanted male attention, as well as battling her own feelings about Strike.
As Strike and Robin investigate Margot’s disappearance, they come up against a fiendishly complex case with leads that include tarot cards, a psychopathic serial killer and witnesses who cannot all be trusted. And they learn that even cases decades old can prove to be deadly . . .

    I loved this book. It was wonderfully complex, this one, and the killer was a total shock! Plus I loved that our shock became part of the story. ❤️
  • Not great

    By 2 dogslvr
    This is by far my least favorite in the series. Way too cumbersome. I was bored to tears reading the astrology details and eventually glossed over the words. The last 100 pages were the best part of the book, picking up steam
  • Insightful

    This is the 4th book I’ve read of this series and definitely the best. The characters were developed with great detail and insightful ness. Looking forward to read the next one.
  • A rich and rewarding read

    By McDoc2
    Again the writing is superb. The reader not only feels the physical and emotional pain of the many characters but can see them as the flourish on the page.
  • The best so far!

    As with all of the books in this series it kept me guessing until the end. So many exciting twists and turns. I look forward now to the next installment I hope will be coming.
  • Well, now I can get on with my life

    By Auggie's Man
    This one was the best, and they were all good. The characters amazing, the writing superb. I didn’t want it to end, but banished my wife for the last two hours of the reading so I could focus. I hope to see more, but if not, it was a gift well wrapped.
  • Strike and Robin Win Again

    By C-182
    The detective pair of Strike and Robin are formidable sleuths, their dogged pursuit of truly evil personalities rings true with real police work. As compelling is the complex story lines of the lead characters and their evolving relationship. The author’s skill at fantasy and grim reality is impressive.
