Excerpt: Read First Two Chapters Of The Silkworm By Robert Galbraith (J.K. Rowling)

Despite the row that's been happening between Amazon and Hachette, the next installment in the detective Cormoran Strike series tries to maintain it relevance to its readers. You might be having hard time pre-ordering The Silkworm in the said bookstore, but you can still a have taster of it below, before its fast approaching release.

The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith

J.K. Rowling, parading as a male writer and ex-military (Royal Military Police under SIB) Robert Galbraith, surely knows how to maintain her grip to us, her readers. Hopefully the book will be as good as its predecessor, The Cuckoo’s Calling, if not better. I enjoyed the book so much that I can't wait to read the whole of the sequel already.

You can read the first two chapter of The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith below.


When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, she just thinks he has gone off by himself for a few days – as he has done before – and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home.

But as Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine’s disappearance than his wife realises. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows. If the novel were published it would ruin lives – so there are a lot of people who might want to silence him.

And when Quine is found brutally murdered in bizarre circumstances, it becomes a race against time to understand the motivation of a ruthless killer, a killer unlike any he has encountered before...

You can also read the tweets J.K. Rowling and Robert Galbraith have made in regards to the release of the book.

The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith will hit American book stores on June 24 and June 19 for UK.
