Career of Evil is just days from publication (only 11 days to be exact) and thanks to The Guardian, we now have an excerpt from the 3rd Cormoran Strike novel!


This Ain’t the Summer of Love

He had not managed to scrub off all her blood. A dark line like a parenthesis lay under the middle fingernail of his left hand. He set to digging it out, although he quite liked seeing it there: a memento of the previous day’s pleasures. After a minute’s fruitless scraping, he put the bloody nail in his mouth and sucked. The ferrous tang recalled the smell of the torrent that had splashed wildly on to the tiled floor, spattering the walls, drenching his jeans and turning the peach-coloured bath towels – fluffy, dry and neatly folded – into blood-soaked rags.



You can NOW read the first TWO CHAPTERS of Career of Evil! For chapter one, click here. For chapter two, here!

An audio version of the first two chapter has ALSO been released. Listen to Chapter 1 & Chapter 2 narrated by award winning actor, Robert Glenister!

Scans from Time magazine featuring the excerpt & a new photoshoot have also been added to the gallery! We edited the beautiful photo of Jo from the scan as best as we could. Please give proper credit when reposting. Enjoy!
