Strike and Robin return to tackle a gruesome murder.

After a successful debut last year, Tom Burke and Holliday Grainger make a welcome return as shabby detective Cormoran Strike and his assistant Robin Ellacott for another challenging two-part case, Career of Evil.

When a severed leg is delivered to Strike’s office, the sleuths delve into their own traumatic pasts to discover who has a vendetta against them.

After a girl’s body is found, Strike looks into cases that haunted him both as a military policeman and as a child, and Robin’s own university ordeal is brought to the fore.

However, she’s also trying to juggle the harrowing inquiry with preparing for her wedding to the frankly rather annoying Matthew!
