Several months after the solving of the Lula Landry case, Cormoran Strike is asked by Leonora Quine to locate her novelist husband Owen, a former literary genius whose attempts to recreate his past success have failed. Much like The Cuckoo's Calling, The Silkworm was met with critical acclaim, selling more copies than its predecessor in its opening weeks. "Rowling proves once again that she’s a master of plotting over the course of a series; you can see her planting seeds" (Kirkus). "Beautifully written with a terrific plot" (Daily Express).
