More COVID-Dio: "Career of Evil" by Robert Galbraith (Rowling)

More COVID-Dio: "Career of Evil" by Robert Galbraith (Rowling), 2015, Wisconsin Digital Library.

Meh. These Cormoran Strike novels always go on too long. And the will-they won't-they stuff of Strike and his assistant Robin gets on my nerves. So does Cormoran "Mr. Grouchy Pants" Strike's grouchiness.

Anyway, some guy wants revenge on Strike for something. Strike cannot figure out who the guy is and the guy is killing people and stalking Robin. We follow Robin and Strike around after Strike narrows the suspects to four people. All four of the guys are long time dirtbags. 

Everything turns out OK in the end. Except for the dead people or people who were raped or stabbed or whatever.


1. Strike's chronic pain from a missing leg is always well incorporated into the story by Rowling. Strike has to plan his trips to avoid too much walking or suffer the consequential pain.

2. Robin and her fiance arguing and fighting. Robin never quite coping with a university rape that caused her to withdraw from school.

Listened to in 2020. Notes written July, 2021 when I don't recall much about the book except there are lots of street scenes as they tail guys around or do surveillance.
