"When Billy, a troubled young man, comes to private eye Cormoran Strike's office to ask for his help investigating a crime he thinks he witnessed as a child, Strike is left deeply unsettled. While Billy is obviously mentally distressed, and cannot remember many concrete details, there is something sincere about him and his story. But before Strike can question him further, Billy bolts from his office in a panic. Trying to get to the bottom of Billy's story, Strike and Robin Ellacott--once his assistant, now a partner in the agency--set off on a twisting trail that leads them through the backstreets of London, into a secretive inner sanctum within Parliament, and to a beautiful but sinister manor house deep in the countryside. And during this labyrinthine investigation, Strike's own life is far from straightforward: his newfound fame as a private eye means he can no longer operate behind the scenes as he once did. Plus, his relationship with his former assistant is more fraught than it ever has been--Robin is now invaluable to Strike in the business, but their personal relationship is much, much trickier than that."--Amazon

Having read and thoroughly enjoyed the other 3 books, I was anxiously looking forward to the 4th one being released. Well, I have never been so disappointed in my life. Was happy to see it picked up where Career of Evil left off only to have Chapter 2 begin a year after the wedding. That in itself didn't make any sense. Clearly Robin and Strike had some issues to resolve so what happened in between that time? Was there tension between them when Robin came back to her job? I couldn't follow the plotline, and it seemed there was not all that much interaction between Robin and Strike throughout the entire book. I also would have liked to see more of Shankar in this one. To me, the main characters were "off" somehow. They didn't even seem the same to me. I'll be very interested to read other reviews here as more people finish the book.

Was eagerly looking forward to this book as I had enjoyed the previous ones. Well, I got to page 207 and had to quit. Not worth the reading time. The mystery is so slow to unfold as the main protagonists spend more time quetsching about their private lives than anything else. I don't mind a little background to their lives but when the book turns into a soap opera, well, I'm out. What a disappointment.
