A novelist goes missing and his wife hires Cormoran Strike to locate him. That is the basic premise of this book, however, for me it was all about the growing relationship between Robin and Cormoran. I cannot believe how much I am enjoying this series since I really had no intention of reading it and I would have missed out on such a great set of characters. The one character I really dislike in this series is Robin’s fiancé as for most of this book Robin was trying to act and behave like someone else in order to please her fiancé rather than being true to herself. I am hoping to see this change as I continue to work my way through this series.
