Cormoran Strike gets hired by Leonora Quine to find her missing husband Owen Quine. He is an author that has a tendency to disappear from time to time. But Strike soon learn that there is more to Quine's disappear when he finds out that he has written a book where he pretty much insult everyone around him.
This book was so much better than the first book. The story in this book; the case was much more interesting and I didn't know in the end was the culprit. The only thing I can think of that bothered me with the book felt a bit long sometimes, not that I was bored by it, but I felt sometimes it could be a bit long-winded and my interest dropped a bit because of all the characters that Strike had to investigate and all the past history between them that Strike needed to figure out. But it could be because I really wanted to know who did it!
Strike and Robin are such a great team and I'm looking forward to reading more books with them. (without Matthew of course)
