This was a quick read. I read this one in the span of, I think, two days. It was great! The main characters of this story are Lucy Hutton, a short and quick witted woman with a deep dislike for Joshua Templeman, our other main character. Joshua is dark, mysterious, and quietly charming.
Cormoran Srike is facing one of the worst times of his life. His long time girlfriend has left him for another man, he’s forced to live in his office, and he’s under large amounts of debt. It all looks to be going from bad to worse, that is, until John Bristow shows up in his office.
I’m not sure what to say about this book. It was a roller-coaster ride all the way through. There were moments when I seriously couldn’t put the book down, it was that fun to read. Then… there were moments when I couldn’t fathom why I even began to read this one.
