(aka J.K. Rowling)
Robert Galbraith's Cormoran Strike series is classic contemporary crime fiction from a master story-teller, rich in plot, characterisation and detail. Galbraith's debut into crime fiction garnered acclaim amongst critics and crime fans alike. The first three novels The Cuckoo's Calling (2013), The Silkworm (2014) and Career of Evil (2015) all topped the national and international bestseller lists and have been adapted for television, produced by Brontë Film and Television. The fourth in the series, Lethal White (2018), is out now.

Robert Galbraith is a pseudonym of J.K. Rowling, bestselling author of the Harry Potter series and The Casual Vacancy, a novel for adults. After Harry Potter, the author chose crime fiction for her next books, a genre she has always loved as a reader. She wanted to write a contemporary whodunit, with a credible back story.
J.K. Rowling's original intention for writing as Robert Galbraith was for the books to be judged on their own merit, and to establish Galbraith as a well-regarded name in crime in its own right.

Now Robert Galbraith's true identity is widely known, J.K. Rowling continues to write the crime series under the Galbraith pseudonym to keep the distinction from her other writing and so people will know what to expect from a Cormoran Strike novel.

Ein hervorragendes Buch aus der Cormoran-Strike-Reihe, das mir wieder besser gefallen hat als der vorherige Band.
Thema ist diesmal eine Sekte, aus der Robin und Strike ein Mitglied herausholen oder wenigstens kontaktieren sollen. Robin wird undercover Mitglied und läuft nicht nur Gefahr, das Anwesen der Sekte nicht mehr verlassen zu können, sondern auch, dort indoktriniert oder gar vergewaltigt zu werden.
Natürlich wird es stellenweise extrem spannend – das Buch hat mir einige kurze Nächte beschert. Auch bin ich den Hauptpersonen diesmal wieder näher gekommen, nachdem sie im letzten Band etwas ausgelutscht wirkten. Gerade in dieser Hinsicht ist der Cliffhanger am Schluss sehr gemein. Es wird wohl einen weiteren Band geben.
Schwächen zeigt das Buch dagegen in der Beschreibung der Sekte. Die „Universal Humanitarian Church“ ist ein von durchtriebenen Betrügern geleiteter Verein, der nur auf monetären Gewinn aus ist. Die Darstellung ist schon arg flach und plakativ: Reine Bösartigkeit, und tausende willige Schafe, die sich zu Mittätern machen lassen. Das zentrale Verbrechen der Sekte bleibt über Jahrzehnte unbekannt, obwohl es hunderte Mitwisser gibt – das hat nicht mehr Substanz als eine krude Verschwörungstheorie.
Aber das schmälert das Vergnügen nur wenig. Das Buch macht einfach Spaß, von vorne bis hinten! Die Charaktere sind wunderbar, auch anderen Detektiven kommt man diesmal ein wenig näher, die Spannung ist umwerfend, und Rowling hat es wieder geschafft, dass ich bis zum Schluss nicht wusste, was wirklich passiert ist.
Unbedingt empfehlenswert.

Typical JKR/Strike. Great characters, vivid prose, intricate plot, compelling reading.

I have to say that this book grabbed me. Right from the opening quotation, to the final page! It takes a lot to keep me enthralled for over 1,100 pages of book! I was so enthralled that I didn't feel like just reading the book, I also listened to it on audible as I was wading my way through it. That's why I love audible! I can still listen while I am busy doing something else. As it turns out, I listened to over half of the book this way. This is a definite winner, but that doesn't mean that it wasn't difficult to wade through. The first half of the book, while Robin was in extreme danger undercover in a religious cult, I could barely keep going. I should mention that the audio book is 34 Hours + in length, but i still managed to keep listening and reading for seven days. It kept me on the edge of my seat, or on my feet, for every single one of those days. It's been a long while since I've had a book take over my life like this one. Yes, parts of the book are certainly cringe worthy, and parts are just pure terror. But let me tell me you, by the time the book ends, I couldn't believe the depths that the Universal Humanitarian Church would go to preserve their persona and their reputation. It was difficult to decide which scenarios in the book were the real story. Was it the Church itself, was it the degradation and subservience of the people inside the church, was it the unexplainable disappearance of a seven-year-old girl. or was it the atrocities that were committed in the name of religion? After finishing, I can't tell you which of these was the main story behind the continuous battering of my senses and made me question th surety of my knowing of what was right and wrong. What I do know is that I did not even guess the main thrust of the story until the final denouement. I highly recommend this series, and this book especially, but I do feel that the other books in the series should be read before this one. That is the only way that a reader will ever be able to grasp what is going on here, and most importantly, how much it affected the personalities of the main characters.… (mais)

I had to ponder on this one to determine the star level. I settled on 3.

I think it was well written and it kept my interest. There were a lot of F words, but it didn't detract from the story for me. I do wish the clues would have been laid out in a fashion wherein I could have understood the crime as in depth as Strike did prior to him revealing it at the end.

Character development was not the highlight. I was surprised Strike chose a particular activity later in the book, but wondered in retrospect why it surprised me. There was nothing about his character development throughout the book that would give me insight into that choice point.

Overall enjoyable. Don't need to keep it, won't necessarily recommend, but I'd not tell people to avoid it, either.
