Why this book?:
I've been enjoying the series.
Robin's getting married. Or is she? I can't say this was my favorite thread of the storyline, but it was certainly part of it. We also learn more about her past, which adds to her character, but makes quite the contrast from when she is being strong and overcoming vs. when she feels weak and is losing herself to the horror in her life.
And then there were the men who could potentially be out for Strike. They had all done horrible things, particularly to women. I'm sure the title can be taken multiple ways, but whenever I reflected on it I thought of how Cormoran Strike's career had brought him into contact with such evil.
Anyway, this one book me a while to get through, but certainly picked up quite a bit toward the end. There was one scene in particular that had me in knots. The adrenaline and nerves were so strong I found myself thinking I probably shouldn't have been driving.
