Cormoran and Robin are asked to investigate the 40 year old cold case of Margot Bamborough, a doctor who went missing and was never heard from again. It was assumed she was another victim of a serial killer who was active at the time.
I know this book has created a lot of controversy, much of it fuelled by people who have not even read the book. I’m not going there. I found nothing offensive in this book. There are details of how the serial killer tortured his victims, but they are brief and not gratuitous.
Cormoran and Robin’s private lives are still messy; Robin’s divorce procedure is acrimonious and Cormoran’s ex is causing him grief. I love how these two characters are developing.
If you enjoyed the previous four books, I can guarantee that you will find this just as engrossing.
