The problem is , the manuscript get leaked, and most of London literary community knows all about, the people involved are important ones, powerful and some of them, as many people of the literary circles, weirdos or even worst, maniacs..

Fewer writers.

Rowling Robert Galbraith's opinion about them And really what she said is shockingly bold.. A fact. And I have said that women generally, by virtue of their desire to mother, are incapable of the necessarily single-minded focus anyone must bring to the creation of literature, true literature.

That is a fact. Strike asserts that, although his mother had been a notorious rock groupie, she had never taken heroin at the time that she supposedly overdosed, which occurred suspiciously soon after a confrontation with Whittaker over money. Strike reveals that Whittaker was found to have kept a dead woman's body with him in a flat for over a month some years after Leda Strike's death.

As Robin and Strike approach the end of their travels, Strike is tipped off that Whittaker is currently living in London, pimping and possibly selling methamphetamine. The killer strikes twice more during the investigation, cutting two fingers from one victim who survives and the ear lobes from another, leading to the killer becoming known as the Shacklewell Ripper and officially transitioning the police case into a hunt for a serial murderer. Meanwhile, Wardle's brother is struck and killed in a hit-and-run motor accident, necessitating his departure from work.

Carver remains furious that Strike was able to humiliate the police by solving the case, which Carver himself had ruled a suicide. He spitefully informs Strike that the open line into the department's investigation he had enjoyed while Wardle was in command has closed and threatens legal action if Strike continues his own investigation.

Exploiting a technicality, Strike agrees not to interfere with Carver's suspects, which are vastly different from his own three leads. Strike and Robin alternately tail Whittaker, whom they learn is squatting in an apartment with a young woman called Stephanie whom he is pimping.

Noticing Stephanie's severe bruises, Robin sympathises and attempts to help her. Although unwilling to leave Whittaker, she does reveal that, on the night the first victim would have been killed, Whittaker had forced her to have sex with his entire band in a van.

Robin therefore concludes that, while Whittaker is abominable, he cannot be the Shacklewell Ripper. Shortly after Whittaker interrupts her meeting with Stephanie, Robin is attacked and nearly killed by the real Ripper.

She receives a long gash up her arm but manages to set off a rape alarm which attracts help and sprays him in the eyes with red paint, though she never sees his face.

In the aftermath of this attack, Strike believes he has identified the killer, but Carver disregards all of Strike's information. Strike loses both of his remaining clients.

Robin takes action against Brockbank without Strike's knowledge, as she believes that he is now molesting his current girlfriend's young daughters. Robin's intervention saves the girls, but sends Brockbank into hiding. When Strike discovers what Robin has done, he explains that Carver suspects her of having visited Brockbank on Strike's instruction and is rallying to arrest him for interfering in a police investigation. Overcome by his situation with Carver, the loss of his only remaining clients and Robin's extremely close call with the murderer, Strike fires her for gross misconduct.

Robin is bereft, but returns to Masham for her impending wedding to Matthew, with whom she has reconciled.

Strike tries to contact her, but Matthew removes evidence of this from Robin's phone. Now working alone, Strike forms a plan to corner the killer, whom he is now sure he has identified. The killer is Donald Laing, who has built a parallel identity as Ray Williams, the live-in boyfriend of the would-be amputee's older sister.

Together with his thug acquaintance Shanker, Strike gains access to the flat that Laing is using as a base for his killing activities. Inside, he is attacked by Laing but manages to overcome him before successfully handing him over to the police. Brockbank is also apprehended as a result of a tip from a local homeless shelter. Now free from the stress of the murderer, Strike decides to repair his relationship with Robin by attending her wedding, the invitation to which was never formally rescinded following her dismissal.

After a frantic dash to the church, Strike arrives just in time to see Robin and Matthew exchange vows.

The novel ends as Robin turns at the altar, sees Strike, and beams. Main characters[ edit ] Cormoran Strike — a veteran of the war in Afghanistan and an ex-SIB investigator who was honourably discharged from the military after losing half of his right leg in a bomb attack.

During the period of abuse, Brockbank had told his stepdaughter he once tried to saw her leg off according to Strike she actually got it caught in barbed wire when she was younger, giving her a scar similar to the one on the leg sent to Strike's office which led him to suspect Brockbank ; however, he was never tried and was instead invalided out of the military.
