Career of Evil: Part 1 & 2
5 March 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Someone is after Cormoran Strike on a personal level. He has been sent a severed leg in the post. He is framed for the murder of a teenage girl, Kelsey Platt. The police and press are chasing him. Strike knows he is being framed but he and Robin need to figure out who.

The shortlist maybe related to his past in the army. Strike had a run in with a major who might had been abusing his daughter, then there was a squaddie who was abusing his wife. On a personal level there is an over the hill rock star that Strike blames for the death of his mother, who used to be a rock groupie.

The reveal might had been a bit disappointing relying on some disguises and low lit photography to fool the audience. However it is clear that Strike and Robin make a good team, the stories do feel rather slow going and Robin's fiance is too much of a weed.
