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 whom he thinks could be responsible - and Strike knows that any one of them is capable of sustained and unspeakable brutality.

Where does Career of Evil rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Fab story, good quality audio apart from the fact that our narrator Robert Glenister has made Robin sound like Matthew in this audio. She's from Yorkshire, at least she was when he narrated her in the first 2 books. Took me quite a long time to get over this and listen to the story without getting annoyed everytime Robin spoke.

What did you like best about this story?

The development of the relationship between Cormoran and Robin is at the heart of all the books and it's brilliant.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Robert Glenister?

He's fine apart from the gaff with Robin's accent in this book

Any additional comments?

Another brilliant tale from Robert Galbraith

The book is great and the narrator is completely right for the part. You could think it was Richard Branson! I really enjoyed listening to it in the car to work
