About the Author

Robert Galbraith is a pseudonym for J.K. Rowling, bestselling author of the Harry Potter series and The Casual Vacancy. Career of Evil is the third book in the highly acclaimed Cormoran Strike crime fiction series. The Cuckoo's Calling was published in 2013 and The Silkworm in 2014.


"Career of Evil is the third--and best--novel in the engaging Cormoran Strike private detective series. . . . [Galbraith has] invented a serial killer for the ages, one who chills us from the book's grim but riveting opening. . . . This perfectly paced mystery is packed with surprises, all of which play out with flawless crime-fiction logic."--Jocelyn McClurg, USA Today (4/4 stars)
"Gripping . . . A step forward for the series . . . An absorbing book, pulpy, fast and satisfying."--Charles Finch, New York Times Book Review
"Pure pleasure. . . . That's what makes these novels so good: They are clever, tightly plotted mysteries with all of the most pleasurable elements of the genre (good guy, bad guy, clues, twists, murder!), but with stunning emotional and moral shading."--Annalisa Quinn, NPR
"Hugely entertaining . . . This gifted storyteller has taken full command of the new turf. . . . Career of Evil succeeds powerfully on its own terms."--Lloyd Sachs, Chicago Tribune
"Another triumph . . . Its darkness is mitigated by its sparkling protagonists."--Kim Hubbard, People
"Strike and Robin are just as magnetic as ever."--Michiko Kakutani, New York Times
"Sparklingly witty [and] unexpectedly moving"--Moira Macdonald, Seattle Times
"Bloody good . . . The author's trademark plotting has lost none of its propulsive readability."--Daneet Steffens, Boston Globe
"Satisfying . . . Strike and Robin are as powerful a fictional pairing as any in recent memory. . . . Galbraith demonstrates a breezy command of the intricacies of both the central mystery and of the form itself."--Robert Wiersema, Toronto Star
"A refreshing change to the genre . . . Every bit as impressive as [The Cuckoo's Calling] . . . Let's hope the sardonic Cormoran Strike is here to stay."--Barry Forshaw, Independent [UK]
"An entertaining novel . . . The denouement is violent, unexpected and satisfying."--Marcel Berlins, The Times [UK]
"A deliriously clever plot"--Christobel Kent, Guardian [UK]
"As readable and exciting as ever . . . Fans of the intrepid duo are in for some shocks."--Jake Kerridge, Telegraph [UK]
