“I do,” said Robin in a ringing voice, looking straight into the eyes, not of her stony-faced new husband, but of the battered and bloodied man who had just sent her flowers crashing to the floor.

5/5 stars

The next case becomes more personal for detective Cormoran Strike and his assistant Robin Ellacott, when a package containing a woman’s severed leg is delivered to her.

I love these books! I love the relationship between Robin and Cormoran. It’s so complicated. I like that they have an awesome friendship that they won’t let become romantic, even though everyone else thinks they should be together. I like that they keep it professional. I am not a fan of her fiance Matthew, so I was thrilled for a good portion of the book and now I don’t know what to think after I have finished it. Will she continue working with Cormoran in the next book? I don’t know!

The relationship between Strike and Robin is not the only reason that keeps me reading these books. The case they are investigating kept me guessing until the end. I can see that there is no way I would have figured out who the killer would have been since Strike always figures out the killer but leaves the audience in the dark until the final reveal. I did like trying to guess who it might be throughout the book, even though I did not have all the same clues that Strike had.

I am bummed that I have to wait until the next book to find out what is happening next with these two. I also have been waiting until each book comes out in paperback to read it, but will I be able to wait even longer? I’m not sure.
