Waiting on Wednesday - Career Of Evil



This is a weekly event that highlights a book we can't wait to be published.  It is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

I know I've already shared how much I love the Harry Potter books.  I also have read J. K. Rowling's mysteries that she writes under the name Robert Galbraith.  I really like Cormoran Strike and his assistant, Robin.  I'll be sharing the review of the second one, The Silkworm, later this week.  The third book in the series will be published later this year and it is my selection for this week:




Publication Date:  October 1st

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...

    1. Yes, Tessa, not every book is for every reader. This one might not be to your taste.

  9. I haven't read any of this author's books: not the Harry Potter books, and not those written as Robert Galbraith. This one sounds good, though. Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

    Great header photo!

    1. Well, I guess that not every reader can love Harry like I do. You should try this mystery series though. Thanks about the picture. Colorado, last year.

  10. I am also someone who's never read anything by JK Rowling although I do have a couple of the Harry Potter books. This book looks very intriguing.

    1. My review of The Silkworm will be up on Friday. It was very interesting.

  12. I've had a hard time adjusting to the fact that these are by JK Rowling but aren't Harry Potter but I think I've gotten past that as they sound really good! I'm looking forward to listening to the first book soon and I can't wait for your review of the second!

    1. They are different for sure. I think it was hard for her to get over the whole Harry thing and have people look at the series as non-YA and non-magical. I really like it though.

  13. Great pick! I really want to check this one out because I love J.K. Rowling.
