Incredibly slow paced and not that engrossing. The cold case aspect gave Galbraith leave to dwell on the other cases the firm was covering along with an inordinate amount of pages spent on the teenage-like waffling of Robin and Strike's will-they-won't-they relationship. While this might be a more inline with real-world detecting, it didn't lead to greater character development, especially of the secondary characters.

As for the controversial aspect of the book, the serial killer wasn't a transwoman per se but he is a psychopath who placates his landlady by singing along to showtunes and wearing a feather boa. I think there was a bit of an overreaction by a reviewer, yet at the same time it wasn't the best choice for an author who is has made her sentiments towards transpeople well known. ( )

This was quite the tome and I worried that I might struggle with it. Yet, I enjoyed the other books in this series so much I wanted to at least give it a try. I need not have worried. I became so absorbed with the story and in the lives of Strike and Robin that the pages just flew by. It is one of those rare books that is just so well written you don’t even realize how long it truly is.

The plot is realistic and totally believable. I found that it is was way too easy to get lost in the nuances. Which is why the character of Strike works well with the plot. Not only is he smart but he is good with details. Then you have the underlying fire between Strike and Robin. It is such a slow burn and added an extra level of depth to the story. I am dying to read the next book and see what new challenges they face and where this unresolved tension between them goes. I am not sure I can stand the wait. ( )

I was surprised to find out the identity of the murderer! It is one of those books that is its own world, and I chose it for that purpose - to escape my present. Still, I did think it was too long. If you deleted all of the references to Strike smoking you would probably save twenty pages! An enjoyable read, but not a classic. ( )

I remember from when my nephew and nieces were eagerly devouring each new Harry Potter book that the latest one always seemed to be bigger than its predecessor. That theme seems to be continuing with J K Rowling’s crime novels featuring Cormoran Strike and Robin Ellacott. This latest weights in at 928 pages of fairly small type, and having bought it in hardback, I genuinely found it difficult to read at times simply because my wrists didn’t seem up to the task in hand. Fortunately, my wrists weren’t subject to prolonged torment because the story was so gripping that I read through it very quickly.

The story opens about a year after the events recounted in Lethal White. Cormoran Strike is spending much of his time down in Cornwall, visiting the aunt who brought him up, but whose health is now failing as she succumbs to terminal cancer. Robin is now a partner in the firm, rather than merely one among several of Cormoran’s employees. She is, however, far from settled in life, finding herself being dragged through an increasingly acrimonious divorce from husband Matthew, who seems to be going out of his way to make the separation as difficult and expensive (both financially and emotionally) as possible. She is also working longer hours than ever as she tries to cover up for Cormoran’s unavoidable absences.

They have several long-running cases on their books, and the two of them, and the various investigators whom they retain as subcontractors, are fully stretched. They do, however, agree to take on the strange case of a doctor who disappeared one Friday evening nearly forty years ago. At the time, the police assumed that she had fallen victim to a serial killer who had abducted, tortured and then murdered a long string of victims, although they never found anything solid evidence to connect the doctor to the convicted murderer, and he never confirmed that she had been among his victims. Cormoran and Robin are commissioned by the doctor’s daughter to see whether they can uncover any clearer idea of what might have befallen her.

Rowling/Galbraith dexterously weaves this sad tale in and around the other cases that the agency is pursuing. Her plot management is amazing, and there seems to be no limit to the number of plates she can keep spinning atop their respective poles. All of the cases being undertaken by Cormoran Robin have their own idiosyncrasies, but they are all followed assiduously. Similarly, Rowling/Galbraith is an acute observer of relationships, and captures the tensions and misunderstandings that close working and long hours can bring to a small business.

The principal plotline, concerning the fate of the doctor, is a masterpiece in its own right, featuring tensions and rivalries within the surgery where the doctor was based, and also highlights the stresses that police officers feel when following high profile cases amid the crucible of media attention.

This is a well-constructed, well written and very entertaining novel, whatever it might have done to my wrists! ( )

Simply excellent. Great characters, vivid prose, compelling storyline. Didn't want to finish it, but couldn't put the book down. ( )

A scrupulous plotter and master of misdirection, Galbraith keeps the pages turning but, while much of the book is terrific fun, is hardly a hair-raising ride. The languid pace and elderliness of the mystery (and indeed most of the suspects) give the enterprise the cosy air of a Sunday night TV drama. When the denouement finally comes, it is not quite satisfying enough to justify the page count.

Strike and Ellacott, however, remain one of crime's most engaging duos. I am already eager for the next instalment. I just hope my aching arms can take it.
