"When Billy, a troubled young man, comes to private eye Cormoran Strike's office to ask for his help investigating a crime he thinks he witnessed as a child, Strike is left deeply unsettled. While Billy is obviously mentally distressed, and cannot remember many concrete details, there is something sincere about him and his story. But before Strike can question him further, Billy bolts from his office in a panic. Trying to get to the bottom of Billy's story, Strike and Robin Ellacott--once his assistant, now a partner in the agency--set off on a twisting trail that leads them through the backstreets of London, into a secretive inner sanctum within Parliament, and to a beautiful but sinister manor house deep in the countryside. And during this labyrinthine investigation, Strike's own life is far from straightforward: his newfound fame as a private eye means he can no longer operate behind the scenes as he once did. Plus, his relationship with his former assistant is more fraught than it ever has been--Robin is now invaluable to Strike in the business, but their personal relationship is much, much trickier than that."--Amazon.… (mer)

A psychotic man haunted by memories of a little girl strangled and buried in a pink blanket goes missing. An MP hires the agency to find blackmail material against those trying to blackmail him. He then commits suicide but the family keeps the agency on to investigate his death.

This is a long read, but personally, I loved that. There is plenty going on and keeping all the threads in your head can be a challenge, but that is exactly what I enjoyed. I like quick reads but I also like books that when you look back you think wow, there was a lot in there!

Details of Strike's and Ellacott's relationships are interwoven with the work of the agency. The agency is the main focus for both of them, which is why they get on so well, when they are honest with each other. Their personal lifes complicate their professional relationship and this is beautifully depicted, life is complicated and it is hard to watch someone you love and respect struggling with their lives.

Things and people take time to change, so I felt the length of the book was well justified as we see Robin's professional development and confidence grow as her personal life becomes more confined and restricted until she gains the strength to change.

Cormoran, who is not over the end of his 16 year tempestuous relationship with Charlotte, is rebounding and hurting people because he can't invest emotionally. Both partners are damaged in different ways, the agency is their one solid and overriding commitment and one that unites them. But is it love?

Their client's dysfunctional family rooted in the upper classes, shows that relationships can be toxic at all levels. The cruelty and damage inflicted is heartbreaking and the anger and resentment, though to be deplored, is understandable. From Billy, haunted by a hallucinatory half-memory and beaten since childhood, to all the Chiswell children haunted by the memory of a saintly Freddie; the eldest son killed in action and whose death Strike investigated. “I never had so many people ask me whether the dead officer had been shot in the back by his own men.”

The book casts a glimpse into the world of politics, again both extremes. High machinations of office and how everyone knows everyone and collude with those in the same circle. How outsiders, no matter their proficiency, will always face abuse and closed ranks as the Winns and Aamir Mallik demonstrate.

A lovely feast of a book, to be savoured and enjoyed. I am looking forward to reading Troubled Blood when it comes out in paperback. ( )

Wieder sehr spannend, sehr gut geschrieben, wunderbare Charaktere, und von der Handlung her noch deutlich komplexer als die ersten drei Romane.
Zu Anfang tat ich mich etwas hart, nachdem ich direkt vorher die ersten drei Bände gelesen hatte: Es war eigentlich genug, etwas Abwechslung hätte mir gut getan. Als Robin und Matthew dann wieder die sattsam bekannten Probleme ausfochten, legte ich das Buch erst einmal für eine Weile beiseite. Zum Glück zu unrecht, die Geschichte entwickelte sich dann doch anders weiter.
Das Ende kam etwas plötzlich und machte den Eindruck, dass Rowling mit dem umfangreichen Buch endlich fertig werden wollte. Trotzdem: Wieder einer der besten Krimis, die ich je gelesen habe. Unbedingt empfehlenswert. ( )

Erst taucht ein verstörter junger Mann namens Billy bei Cormoran Strike auf und behauptet vor Jahren ein Verbrechen an einem Kind beobachtet zu haben, dann will Kulturminister Jasper Chiswell, dass Strike in einem Erpressungsfall ermittelt. Allerdings hält sich Chiswell sehr bedeckt, worum es genau geht. Der eine Fall spült Geld in die meist leeren Kassen der Detektei, aber die Sache des psychisch kranken Billy ist so rätselhaft, dass sie Strike nicht loslässt. Und so ermittelt er mit Robin Ellacott, die inzwischen seine Partnerin ist, ein beiden Fällen und ahnt nicht, dass es einen Zusammenhang gibt. Robins Ehe mit Matthew ist schwierig und sie ist erleichtert, dass ihre Recherchen so viel Zeit außer Haus einnehmen.
Dieses Buch ist der vierte Fall für das außergewöhnliche Ermittlerduo Cormoran Strike und Robin Ellacott. Neben dem jeweiligen Kriminalfall ist es besonders interessant, die Entwicklung der Hauptcharaktere mitzuerleben.
Der Veteran Strike mag es, Geheimnisse zu ergründen und hat inzwischen mit Hilfe von Robin einige spektakuläre Fälle gelöst, was ihm eine gewisse Berühmtheit verschafft hat, die aber auch hinderlich sein kann. In Liebesdingen läuft es nicht so besonders, denn immer wieder gerät er an Frauen, die Erwartungen haben, welche er nicht erfüllen kann und will. Robin war schon lange mit Matthew zusammen und sie hat ihn geheiratet, obschon zu erkennen war, dass das ein großer Fehler war. Matthew hält nichts von Robins Arbeit und er kontrolliert Robin und macht sie klein. Im Prinzip weiß Robin, dass ihre Ehe ein Fehler war. Sie fühl sich nur wohl, wenn sie ermitteln kann. Aber auch die anderen Charaktere sind eigenwillig und gut dargestellt.
In diesem Fall führen die Ermittlungen ins Parlament, an zwielichtige Orte Londons und auf das Gut des Chiswells. Alle Personen mit denen Robin und Strike reden, halten etwas zurück oder lügen sogar. Aber Cormoran zieht seine Schlüsse und so kommen sie dem Täter immer näher – zu nahe, so dass es für Robin lebensgefährlich wird.
Ich habe lange gedacht, dass ich auf der richtigen Spur bin, aber ich hätte wissen müssen, dass Cormoran immer eine überraschende Lösung präsentiert, weil er ein Detail entdeckt hat, das mir entgangen ist.
Ein spannender und gut konstruierter Krimi mit einem interessanten Ermittlerteam. ( )

Not my favorite. Listening to the book, I kept losing track of who was doing what. And when Cormoran told Robin to figure it out - that she had all the info - I decided that I didn't care that much. Oh well. I will read the next one. ( )
  A2Seamster | Jan 13, 2021 |
In the previous book Robin ended up ignoring Strike's directions and he fired her and this book starts maybe a month after the previous one ended. London is preparing for the Olympics and Strike is doing fine with all the publicity he's had, when a manic, clearly mentally ill, man enters the office and starts rambling about a strangulation he'd seen as a kid.

It's a long book. Longer than the previous ones, and I don't think it makes it better. While I do want good books to go on forever, I also want them to be small enough that I can keep the story in my head and do my own guesses. This book has a bit too many loose ends for that to be easily done. Otherwise it follows the nowadays common pattern of broken human being as detective. Strike can't fix himself or his own life so he tries to fix others instead.

Rating: I was thinking three or four but ended up with three. It's a good book, but there are other books that are better in the genre, and in the series, and it's a bit too long. ( )
