New Details for Robert Galbraith’s Next Book Revealed

A couple of months ago JK Rowling revealed that the next Robert Galbraith book will be out this fall. Today, she confirmed the date as well as the title of the next Cormoran Strike novel, and even showed us the cover!


Galbraith himself also tweeted, even giving us two versions of the cover.


Some more details were also posted to his website:

When a mysterious package is delivered to Robin Ellacott, she is horrified to discover that it contains a woman’s severed leg. Her boss, private detective Cormoran Strike, is less surprised but no less alarmed. There are four people from his past who he thinks could be responsible – and Strike knows that any one of them is capable of sustained and unspeakable brutality.

With the police focusing on the one suspect Strike is increasingly sure is not the perpetrator, he and Robin take matters into their own hands, and delve into the dark and twisted worlds of the other three men. But as more horrendous acts occur, time is running out for the two of them…

Career of Evil is the third in the highly acclaimed series featuring private detective Cormoran Strike and his assistant Robin Ellacott. A fiendishly clever mystery with unexpected twists around every corner, it is also a gripping story of a man and a woman at a crossroads in their personal and professional lives.

So mark your calendars and make sure you get Career of Evil on October 22!
