Troubled Blood

By Robert Galbraith


927 pages

What’s it about? This is the fifth Cormoran Strike detective novel in the series by Robert Galbraith (a pen name for J.K. Rowling).  In this novel, Strike and his business partner Robin are tasked with trying to solve a missing persons case from 40 years earlier.  Margaret Bamborough went missing in 1974 and is assumed dead, most likely at the hands of convicted serial killer Dennis Creed.  However Creed has yet to confess to this crime and the victim’s daughter would like closure.   Strike and Robin continue to explore their own relationship as they look for clues as to what happened to Margaret Bamborough.What did it make me think about? J.K. Rowling just writes interesting characters and intricate plot lines.  I was thinking about who did it for 900 pages. Should I read it? So this was a long book and I enjoyed it immensely.  I must add that this book has gotten uneven reviews.  The book has also had it’s share of controversy over a cross-dressing character in the story. Quote- ” ‘One t’ing life’s taught me: where there’s no capacity for joy, there’s no capacity for goodness,'”
