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.

All of the C. B. Strike mysteries have been great so far (1/2 way through "Career Of Evil" and looking forward to the 4th novel, due soon). Robert Glenister does a terrific job of narrating. He keeps the energy flowing and brings life and humor to the characters. I have never read any Harry Potter novels but as far as hard-boiled London detectives go, J. K. Rowling (aka Robert Galbraith) does it well. #Audible1
