What you need to know before your trail

When frantic, dishevelled Edie Ledwell appears in the office begging to speak to her, private detective Robin Ellacott doesn’t know quite what to make of the situation. The co-creator of a popular cartoon, The Ink Black Heart, Edie is being persecuted by a mysterious online figure who goes by the pseudonym of Anomie. Edie is desperate to uncover Anomie’s true identity.

Robin decides that the agency can’t help with this – and thinks nothing more of it until a few days later, when she reads the shocking news that Edie has been tasered and then murdered in Highgate Cemetery, the location of The Ink Black Heart.

Robin and her business partner Cormoran Strike become drawn into the quest to uncover Anomie’s true identity. But with a complex web of online aliases, business interests and family conflicts to navigate, Strike and Robin find themselves embroiled in a case that stretches their powers of deduction to the limits – and which threatens them in new and horrifying ways . . .

Travel Guide

London and its Ink Black Heart

London is once again the setting for this book but Highgate Cemetery takes a sad and deadly starring role.

The real setting is actually the online world and the text is interspersed with text chat and messages so you feel as if you are reading your phone or accessing social media of some kind.

Great to be back with Comoran and Robin as they navigate the streets of the city around their office in Denmark Street as well as their growing attraction to each other.
