Description

Free Download Troubled Blood Ebook. A breathtaking, labyrinthine epic, Troubled Blood is the fifth Strike and Robin novel and the most gripping and satisfying yet.

Private Detective Cormoran Strike is visiting his family in Cornwall when he is approached by a woman asking for help finding her mother, Margot Bamborough – who went missing in mysterious circumstances in 1974.
 
Strike has never tackled a cold case before, let alone one forty years old. But despite the slim chance of success, he is intrigued and takes it on; adding to the long list of cases that he and his partner in the agency, Robin Ellacott, are currently working on. And Robin herself is also juggling a messy divorce and unwanted male attention, as well as battling her own feelings about Strike.
 
As Strike and Robin investigate Margot’s disappearance, they come up against a fiendishly complex case with leads that include tarot cards, a psychopathic serial killer and witnesses who cannot all be trusted. And they learn that even cases decades old can prove to be deadly . . .

  • One of my favorites in the Strike series

    It’s funny to read the varying comments about this book. One person mentioned to skip this book which astonishes me...with that said, I can understand how some people may think the writing is slow and drawn out, BUT that to me is one of the aspects I loveeee most about RG’s writing style. Over the series of Strike books, RG has masterfully developed the characters, their relationship(s), as well as the locations. RG takes time to set the scene and does not rush through any aspect. I absolutely adored this book! It was long and I love that it was! Shortening this book would have taken away from the storyline. Just with all the previous Strike series, I found it extremely difficult to figure out the ending. I’m so tired of reading these 300-400 page novels that keep coming out from most other authors; you fly through the books, the language is juvenile, and storylines oftentimes too predictable. I’m currently searching for my next read and feel RG ruined other books for me because I love her writing style so very much. I cannot wait for the next Strike book to come out!!! Thank you RG for sharing your amazing talent with the world.

    The tale is solid. However, the infusion of astrology and tarot was over played and got in the way of the tale. Hundreds of pages should have been edited to slim this novel. It’s overweight. Wordiness and mystical meandering smothered the mystery for me. Instead of aiding and abetting quietly in the background, they overwhelmed the horrific human bottom line.

    There are lots of twists and so many suspects! I normally guess the culprit very early on in most books but this one had me changing my mind till the end.
  • Read... then judge.

    There’s nothing transphobic in this book. As always, JKR is simply amazing!
  • So long, so slow. Disappointed.

    I am a huge fan of this series, but this book is so long and so slow that I honestly dreaded reading it and got through it through force of will alone. My personal opinion is that this book was written like a movie or TV show instead of a book. This book could be an entire season of a TV show, with excess material to go around. It is scattered, rambling, and I found myself reading dozens of pages and then wondering why on earth I had just read them. I have gladly paid for every book in this series. Not all of them have been perfect, but they all have been good. Some have been great. This one is garbage and I think JK Rowling has fully lost her direction. I love JK Rowling and believe she is a literary treasure, so I truly hope this is a fluke an she regains her expertise of her craft again for her next book. If you love the Strike series as I do, I honestly encourage you to just skip this one and hope the next is better!

    LOVE this series of books. The only sad part about them is having to wait for the next one!! Truly enjoy the relationship between Strike and his partner Robin. They mesh together as beautifully as Mulder and Scully, or Sherlock and Watson. Always eager for the next installment.
  • Must re-read...

    now that I know the answers. I think I could have spotted all the clues if there weren't so many suspects entwined in Strike's and Robin's search for the truth. The author is an incredible storyteller. One can't help but wonder how she maintains such a strenuous creative pace-- and then I just surrender to its pull. Thanx much!
