Cormoran is giving me a coronary . Hurry up with the book. I need it yesterday.
Ok! Where to start?
Ok firstly I have to say that the third instalment in the Cormoran strike series is by far my favourite so far. In the previous installments I had a sense of where the story was going and who the murderer was but I couldn’t make head nor tail of anything in Career if Evil. Jo, you kept the suspense up that’s for sure.
Cormoran strikes assistant Robyn arrives to work one day to find a courier waiting with a package for her. She signs for it believing it to be something wedding related that she has ordered as she is due to marry her fiancé Matthew the following month. However she is in for a rude awakening when she opens the package and uncovers a severed leg . Cormoran believes that the culprit is one of three men he has history with, one being his former stepfather and the other two being former colleagues in his army life. Career of evil sees Cormoran attempt to uncover which of the men is involved in the crimes all while juggling his struggling business, his new flame and his confusing feelings towards his soon to be wedded assistant.– by the way, I loved the character development of Robyn even though it was tough to read.
One thing I will say is that in comparison to the rest of the novels , the extent of the violence and crimes committed were beyond gruesome. A couple of descriptions were hard to stomach.
