Amazing book!!

This book was amazing condition and the story just draws you in. I couldn’t put it down!!!!

Nearly down-and-out detective unravel a murder mystery.

The author creates memorable, if somewhat exaggerated, characters, some struggling with poverty and hard luck, contrasting with wealthy and privileged, in a complex murder mystery unravelled by Cormoran Strike and his resourceful temporary secretary. No matter the economic status of each, they all are contending with very human probably problems. The clues from suspicious behaviors and circumstances create some unexpectedly twists and turns that are satisfyingly pulled together in the end.

Really good book

I enjoyed the suspense and the writing style. I ordered the next book in the series.
