The Silkworm

Unabridged Audiobook

Narrated By: Robert Glenister

Publisher: Hachette Book Group USA

Duration: 17 hours 21 minutes


Private investigator Cormoran Strike returns in a new mystery from Robert Galbraith, author of the #1 international bestseller The Cuckoo's Calling.

When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, Mrs. Quine just thinks her husband has gone off by himself for a few days--as he has done before--and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home.

But 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. If the novel were to be published, it would ruin lives--meaning that there are a lot of people who might want him silenced.

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...

A compulsively readable crime novel with twists at every turn, THE SILKWORM is the second in the highly acclaimed series featuring Cormoran Strike and his determined young assistant, Robin Ellacott.

    I really enjoyed the first book with the Lula Landry case, but I REALLY loved this second novel in the the Strike series. The author is so incredible at describing not only scenery to make it simple to see the story in the reader’s mind, but the way he builds each character so simply clear is what I love. You just get to know each one of them by his description of them, and it just makes me want to listen more and more. I will admit, at times, that my mind did trail off, but that’s only because of how in-depth the writing is while painting the whole picture for the reader. I still was able to follow, and I can’t WAIT to listen to it again to catch anything j may have missed. Great book. Loved it! I’m very excited about the third one!!!

  • Lauren K

    Love it as much as the first in the series. Excellent series! Enjoyed the narrator as well.

  • Robin Steuernagel

    I did not like this book as much as the first one in the series. The story was hard to follow and not that interesting. I still really like the narrartor, though.

  • Shannon Harris

    The book was good I got lost a lot! I think it's going to be one I listen to a few times to get all the little details.

    I sent this back after listening to 3 cds. It was very boring and didn't like the reader.

  • Barbara McIntyre

    Liked it better than the first book The Cuckoo's Calling. The next in the series Career of Evil is on my list to read soon.

  • Nancy Krehlik

    This book was a waste of my time. The narrator was ok.

  • Gwendolyn Gaither

    This is the second Galbraith I have listened to and loved it as much as the first. Excellent narration and the story keeps you going.
