The Silkworm: Parts 1 & 2
21 February 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

In the second story, things are looking up for private investigator Cormoran Strike. He has more work and money. He is approached by an odd woman just to make phone call to locate her missing husband. When the phone call does not lead to anything Leonora Quine ask him to locate her missing husband Owen Quine, a novelist.

Strike finds that not a lot of people liked him and he had written a manuscript that was a thinly disguised assault on people he knew. Strike finds his body, his gruesome death also mirroring the death that took place in the manuscript.

There is no doubt that the production design and art direction is top notch. There is a drinks party scene with the London Eye as a backdrop which would had been expensive to mount. The story was just a little too slow paced for me.
