      When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike.
    As Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine's disappearance than his wife realizes. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows. 
    When Quine is found brutally murdered under bizarre circumstances, it becomes a race against time to understand the motivation of a ruthless killer, a killer unlike any Strike has encountered before... 

My thoughts: 
     It was okay, not that dull and tedious as the first book. The characters are quite well drawn and unique, but the writing does not sit well with me, I get frustrated really fast. I cannot say that I enjoyed the book, though I read it fast. It is a strange fact: I like the characters but I do not like the book.

    1. The plotting is actually ok, but the execution is boring)
