Audible Releases First Two Chapters of ‘Career of Evil’
Posted by Megs

Audible has released the first two chapters of Robert Galbraith’s Career of Evil through Twitter! Career of Evil is Galbraith’s third novel in the Cormoran Strike series. The book will be released one week from today, on October 20th. Listen to Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 on Soundcloud.

When a mysterious package is delivered to Robin Ellacott, she is horrified to discover that it contains a woman’s severed leg. Her boss, private detective Cormoran Strike, is less surprised but no less alarmed. There are four people from his past who he thinks could be responsible – and Strike knows that any one of them is capable of sustained and unspeakable brutality.

With the police focusing on the one suspect Strike is increasingly sure is not the perpetrator, he and Robin take matters into their own hands, and delve into the dark and twisted worlds of the other three men. But as more horrendous acts occur, time is running out for the two of them….

Career of Evil is the third in the highly acclaimed series featuring private detective Cormoran Strike and his assistant Robin Ellacott. A fiendishly clever mystery with unexpected twists around every corner, it is also a gripping story of a man and a woman at a crossroads in their personal and professional lives.

‘The Cormoran Strike Mysteries’ Coming to BBC One in Autumn/Winter Season
Posted by Megs

The BBC has revealed their lineup for the Autumn/Winter television season and some new information about the series for Robert Galbraith/J.K. Rowling’s Cormoran Strike novels was included! The show will be called ‘The Cormoran Strike Mysteries’ and will air on BBC one (as we previously reported)

Based on Robert Galbraith’s best-selling novels The Cuckoo’s Calling and The Silkworm, and the highly anticipated Career Of Evil, due for publication this autumn, this bold series from a master storyteller will bring one of the most memorable detective duos of modern times to BBC One.

Steeped in the atmosphere of contemporary London, Cormoran Strike’s city is far from the bright lights and frenetic bustle, immersed instead in its darker, murkier side. War veteran turned private detective, Strike investigates shocking crimes together with his female assistant Robin, whose forensic mind and fierce determination he cannot ignore. The murders take them from the hushed streets of Mayfair to the literary haunts of Fitzrovia, exposing the seedy reality lurking beneath seemingly innocent societies. With each crime, they discover a little more about each other and both learn that appearances can be deceptive.

The series is made by Brontë Film and Television, the producers of The Casual Vacancy. Sarah Phelps will adapt The Cuckoo’s Calling and Ben Richards The Silkworm. Ruth Kenley-Letts, Neil Blair and JK Rowling are executive producers, and Lucy Richer for the BBC. Dan McCulloch will produce and Julian Farino will direct.

Cormoran Strike Coming to a TV Near You
Posted by Megs

This afternoon it was revealed that BBC One would be producing a TV series based on Robert Galbraith’s novel, The Cuckoo’s Calling. As we all know, Robert is a pseudonym for J.K. Rowling that was outed last year, which led to the heightened popularity of the novel (which was already a great seller.) Jo herself revealed the news on her Twitter account by saying:

This will be the second of Rowling’s books to be adapted for television. As we reported a couple years ago, BBC would also be producing a three part mini series for her first post-Potter novel, The Casual Vacancy. That will be aired some time next year.
