Cormoran Strike is back, with his assistant Robin Ellacott, in a mystery based around soldiers returning form war.
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 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...
3/5 stars (liked it)
I really liked the first book, second book was not as good, then this one was good. I loved the tension between Robin and Cormoran. I really liked that we got into the killer's head. Also the ending, OMG now I really want to read the next one. I still really dislike Matthew and this book really affirmed my opinion of him.
