I am so pleased I didn't give up on Galbraith after "The Cuckoo's Calling". This second instalment is a gorgeously twisted masterpiece. It was supreme!
The slow-start is clearly a Rowling thing. However, by page 200 the plot is steamrolling, twisting and turning keeping you guessing until suddenly all the subtle clues come together and it all makes perfect sense!
The last 300 pages I consumed. I loved the characters and the plot!
Properly getting to know Strike and Robin seems to have moved the book to a whole other level. You want to read about them not just read about the murder!
Bring on number 3!
