Latest happenings from Hachette.
18 February 2014
Hachette Australia is excited to announce that we will publish The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith on 19th June 2014.
A compulsively readable crime novel with twists at every turn, The Silkworm is the second in the highly acclaimed series featuring Cormoran Strike and his determined young assistant Robin Ellacott.
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…
Robert Galbraith is a pseudonym for J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series and The Casual Vacancy.
Note to editors:
Robert Galbraith/J.K. Rowling will not be available for interview but will be taking part in the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival in Harrogate, UK on 18th July at 7:30pm, in conversation with Val McDermid.
