I have read many of Guys books, which are often insightful but I found this one came across as very misogynistic. The examples of relationship problems were of women being the ones complaining or the men being driven to anger by women. Guy talks about looking inward, and perhaps should look at his own white male privilege and how that may have affected his own view of the world and this book about relationships. I tried going back to this a few times but each time I found it quite egotistical of Mr Finley to suggest he had the answers to everyones relationship problems.

'Thirty-seven years in the force, and if I was allowed to choose just one thing to erase from my mind, what's inside that room would be it.' That's what a LAPD Lieutenant tells Detectives Hunter and Garcia of the Ultra Violent Crimes Unit as they arrive at one of the most shocking crime scenes they have ever attended. In a completely unexpected turn of events, the detectives find themselves joining forces with the FBI to track down a serial killer whose hunting ground sees no borders, a psychopath who loves what he does.

I love Chris Carter books but the narration really spoiled this one for me. Someone like Robert Glenister who narrated the Robert Galbraith books, with a bit more gravel in their voice would have been better. I just kept losing interest due to the bland voice of the narrator.

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.

Enjoyable romp of a story. The relationship between the two main characters, Robin and Strike has evolved since thw first story, and adds a touch of humour, familiarity and depth. Loved that the speaker assumed diffetent voices.
