The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith

Hi there, so for the last 5 days I have been reading The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith, and for the last 2 days I wasn't able to put the book down, I mean literally. I was reading it while cooking, cleaning, between feeding the kids and everything, because it was so darn exciting, captivating and thrilling!
Finally I get done with it last night and I'm feeling pleased and happy as if I was the one who solved the mystery of the killer. I looked up the author and his other books and voila! what do I discover, the author is none other than my fav J.K.Rowling! and Robert Galbraith is a pseudonym. I thought J K could only write wizards and witches and boy I am wrong! I know the books been out since 2014 and I have only just found out but with 3 kids I haven't been in touch with my literary side lately.

Anyhow, on with a little about the book, I'll try not to give anything away. Its a second book about a detective Cormoran Strike, who's cunning, intelligent and a straight forward man. A writer goes missing and he usually pulls these stunts because he kinda likes all attention but when he isn't back, his wife hires Strike to find and bring him home. However, Strike discovers the body of the said writer murdered in the most gruesome way and although the police makes it clear that they do not need any further help from him, the mystery is like a throbbing of his amputated leg, which won't go away. Not for a second the story got boring, but was action packed till the end. 
Now I'm on the hunt for the other two books in the series, wish me luck!
