Previously, I despised Matthew the fiance. This book gives us a bit of a character arc for him, but I still think he's making Robin miserable and she deserves better. And, as always, there's an exploration of London and areas of Britain the seedier and the poorer sides that lends authenticity to the story.
This story ranges even further than the previous one The Silkworm did, and it brings an element of realism into the story. Sadly, the fourth novel isn't published yet at least it's finished, though , so I'll have to be patient.
About the Book
Like c cairdegael11 Jan 01, Another example of J. Even the likeable characters could not make me want to finish this book. There is a certain nastiness about this book, quite shocking, gruesome at times. Oh how I wish P. James was still alive and writing good mysteries.
Ruth Rendell too! Book Two's chapters were headed with obscure quotations from obscure at least to me books. This one had chapters headed by quotes from songs by Blue Oyster Cult - also obscure to me like many, I suspect "Don't Fear the Reaper" is the only song of theirs to come to mind.
My favorite mystery book Rim of the Pit by Hake Talbot had such quotations at the head of each chapter, but they were germane to the chapter's content - although some were probably fabricated for effect.
The chapters narrated by the mysterious killer stalking Robin quickly grew tedious, took you out of the main story line, and were skimmed by me after a while. Katerina Damoulaki. Maria Anagnostopoulou.

Basket Basket 0 0. It was also an examination of fame and the press. The second book started off as a simple missing persons case that turned into a murder mystery, but it was really a satirization of the publishing industry. But to really make it the trifecta of things JKR is obsessed with, likely because of her own fame in the publishing industry as a woman, this book and its central mystery are all about misogyny and violence against women.
The book opens with Robin being sent a woman's severed leg in the mail, and it doesn't let up from there. This case is personal for both Strike and Robin. Strike, because the leg was sent to Robin, the killer is targeting Robin, to get at Strike.
There are three men from Strike's past who would be violent and unhinged enough to do something like this. And Robin because of her own history.

We finally learn why she dropped out of University. I know that some people have had and will have trouble with Robin's backstory, but I don't. Firstly, because it doesn't feel cheap. It feels earned. JKR has clearly been setting it up since day one.

And secondly because of Robin herself. Beautiful, complicated, strong and vulnerable Robin.
Certainly what happened to her was terrible and traumatizing, but it's not the event itself she has trouble with, but how her friends and family and Strike treat her and her ambitions afterwards that she has the most trouble with. Which brings me to Matthew. Motherfucking Matthew.
He's just terrible. But this book sheds light on why Robin is with him, despite his terribleness. She spends years recovering, taking self-defense classes, learning defensive driving, and she's finally reached a place in her life where she is starting to want to move beyond the safe and easy place in her life that Matthew represents.
She starts chafing against his insecurity, his disrespect for her, and his inability to see her as the person she feels she is, rather than the one he wants her to be. When she broke up with him half-way through, I was so relieved.
Robin herself was so sad at losing that part of her life, but I felt she would eventually come out the other side stronger. I suppose that's still possible, but I think the way it actually shakes out, with her giving in and taking him back after he shows what she sees as true remorse, is the more plausible option. I don't think someone in Robin's mindset, so generous in her feelings for other people, so loyal to someone who's been a huge part of her life for nine years, would be able to just cut ties immediately.
I think it's going to be a long, hard process for her.

I did feel badly for Matthew in the same instance Robin did, even though I still thought he was a shithead, but he completely lost any and all goodwill the moment he listened to Strike's message for Robin and then deleted it. That is completely and utterly awful, almost worse than him cheating on her during her convalescence, because it means he has no regard for her or her own choices at all.
I do hope that Robin's bright smile at Strike at the end means that we won't have to put up with him for long, and that Robin can finally escape out from the shadow of her own fear and misplaced compassion long enough to be happy.
The depth of their conflict and interpersonal relationships is what makes this book so great. I'm not sure those were entirely successful.It really does not ring true nor is there anything in her behaviour or her boyfriend's behaviour in any of the previous books or this one for that matter that foreshadowed what should have been a life altering event that would have left a huge and indelible mark on her life.
Career of Evil Galbraith, Robert. For now, this gets 4. It was also an examination of fame and the press. Maria Anagnostopoulou. Robin doesn't want to become that useless, scared person again, and resents anyone trying to protect her, because of that.
I cant wait for the next book.
