Pubblicato in Italia con il titolo La via del male. Nel terzo capitolo della serie, detective privati Cormoran e Robin fanno un viaggio nel passato di Cormoran per trovare l’uomo che gli sta mandando pezzi di cadavere.

The third book in this fantastic series written by J. K. Rowling under the pseudonym of Robert Galbraith is darker than the previous one. Someone has sent Robin, Cormoran Strike’s assistant and work partner, a human leg. Cormoran is convinced that it was sent by someone who wants to scare him and that it someone from his past. As he and Robin investigates, Cormoran’s troubled and complicated life comes to light and the more he tries to protect Robin, the more she is in danger.

The story is very captivating and twisty. Between a killer, Cormoran’s dark past, and Robin’s complicated love life I found myself completely immersed. The author’s brilliant writing and the haunting atmosphere kept me glued to the page. There is never a dull moment and, despite the more than 400 pages, I read it in two days. I really enjoy reading this series, I love the stories, the characters, and the mysteries. Next week, it’s the turn of the fourth and newest book in the series, Lethal White.
