Release day for TROUBLED BLOOD by Robert Galbraith bka J.K. Rowling started off quite well as it is still number one in psychological serial killers. It’s number one bestseller in the category of Serial Killer Thrillers.
Troubled Blood is the 5th book in the Cormoran Strike series and unlocking this cold case is a major thrill.
Here’s the story below, from the blurb on Amazon:
“Private Detective Cormoran Strike is visiting his family in Cornwall when he is approached by a woman asking for help finding her mother, Margot Bamborough – who went missing in mysterious circumstances in 1974.
Strike has never tackled a cold case before, let alone one forty years old. But despite the slim chance of success, he is intrigued and takes it on; adding to the long list of cases that he and his partner in the agency, Robin Ellacott, are currently working on. And Robin herself is also juggling a messy divorce and unwanted male attention, as well as battling her own feelings about Strike.
As Strike and Robin investigate Margot’s disappearance, they come up against a fiendishly complex case with leads that include tarot cards, a psychopathic serial killer and witnesses who cannot all be trusted. And they learn that even cases decades old can prove to be deadly . . .”
For those who are late to the party, Robert Galbraith has been J.K. Rowling’s pen name for a while as she writes under this name for her crime fiction. J. K. Rowling isn’t actually her real name either, but it’s a long story.
Just know that Robert is J. The genre is different.
