[Mystery/Thriller] Robert Galbraith - Cormoran Strike series

Robert Galbraith is a pseudonym for J K Rowling of Harry Potter fame


After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Strike is down to one client, and creditors are calling. He has also just broken up with his longtime girlfriend and is living in his office.

Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: His sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, known to her friends as the Cuckoo, famously fell to her
death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man.







When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, she just thinks he 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 realises. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows. If the novel were published it would ruin lives - so there are a lot of people who might want to silence him.


And when Quine is found brutally murdered in bizarre circumstances, it becomes a race against time to understand the motivation of a ruthless killer, a killer unlike any he has encountered before . . .

         







Career of Evil, the third in the series, immediately announces itself as something different. The title and chapter headings are taken from the lyrics of the US rock band Blue Öyster Cult, a signal that the book intends to take us to dark places that Sayers and Allingham would not have touched with bargepoles. The plot encompasses paedophilia, serial murder and Body Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID) – the mental disorder that makes sufferers want to amputate their healthy limbs.

The novel begins with Robin receiving a parcel containing a woman’s severed leg. Strike thinks it’s the work of somebody he’s crossed in the past, but his list of psychopathic enemies is too long to be easily narrowed down. Interspersed with their investigation are passages told from the perspective of the unnamed killer, who is stalking Robin, and plotting to kill her to get back at Strike.

Lethal White by Robert Galbraith (Cormoran Strike #4)



'I seen a kid killed . . . He strangled it, up by the horse.'When Billy, a troubled young man, comes to private eye Cormoran Strike's office to ask for his help investigating a crime he thinks he witnessed as a child, Strike is left deeply unsettled. While Billy is obviously mentally distressed, and cannot remember many concrete details, there is something sincere about him and his story.

But before Strike can question him further, Billy bolts from his office in a panic.Trying to get to the bottom of Billy's story, Strike and Robin Ellacott - once his assistant, now a partner in the agency - set off on a twisting trail that leads them through the backstreets of London, into a secretive inner sanctum within Parliament, and to a beautiful but sinister manor house deep in the countryside.

And during this labyrinthine investigation, Strike's own life is far from straightforward: his newfound fame as a private eye means he can no longer operate behind the scenes as he once did. Plus, his relationship with his former assistant is more fraught than it ever has been - Robin is now invaluable to Strike in the business, but their personal relationship is much, much more tricky than that . . .

Lethal White -- Proper


I do not mean any disrespect to Skywalker here. He is the original uploader. Cheers to him.

However, I found the above versions to have difficult readability (on converting to PDF, you have 7000 pages). Hence, I am sharing a cleaner version.

Mods, if you feel this is inappropriate, please delete it.

Troubled blood -(Book -5 ) Cormoran strike series

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 . . .
A breathtaking, labyrinthine epic, Troubled Blood is the fifth Strike and Robin novel and the most gripping and satisfying yet.
