The Silkworm is by Robert Galbraith. The second in the Cormoran Strike series. When an author goes missing his wife comes to Strike for assistance in locating him. Since he has "disappeared" in the past, she doesn't want to call the police. As time goes on, Strike begins to wonder if there is more to Quine's disappearance than his wife thinks; then Strike finds Quine's body. The author has been brutally murdered, and his final unpublished novel may have something to do with his death. Better than the first novel, this series promises to entertain.
