Description

A breathtaking, labyrinthine epic, Troubled Blood is the fifth Strike and Robin novel and the most gripping and satisfying 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 . . .

    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!

    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.

    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.
