Troubled Blood Summary
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 . . .

Robert Galbraith’s Cormoran Strike series is classic contemporary crime fiction from a master story-teller, rich in plot, characterisation and detail. Galbraith’s debut into crime fiction garnered acclaim amongst critics and crime fans alike.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great mystery, if a bit excessive in length
Reviewed in the United States on September 20, 2020
It’s no secret that Robert Galbraith is really J. K. Rowling, writing under a pen name presumably to dissociate her work for adults (such as this novel) from her young adult work. And fair enough; this kind of mystery, featuring rather gruesome crimes, has very little to do with Harry Potter. Admittedly, this is my first of the Cormoran Strike novels. I decided to pick up a copy in light of the political controversy surrounding it, and I’m rather glad that I did.
Let’s begin, in fact, with that political controversy, because I think it needs acknowledgment (especially considering it’s the source of most of the criticism directed toward this book). There is a substantial number of people calling for the publisher to stop production of this novel. Indeed, a disturbing number of people, many of them actually bearing Harry Potter tattoos (because apparently they take their lunacy laced with irony), and a few of whom I had hitherto actually respected, have been calling for anyone who reads their random scribblings to burn the book. Some, indeed, have been desperately trying to get attention on the Internet by actually filming themselves burning copies of Rowling’s novels. Why would people do such a thing? Because they’ve gotten it into their heads that the contents of this particular novel are “transphobic.”
I point all of this out both to explain the reason I picked up this novel, starting a series in the middle rather than going immediately back to the first volume (namely, because I give no quarter to would-be censors of literature and will always endeavor to read almost anything that large numbers of people insist I shouldn’t) and to make it abundantly clear that, without exception, the people complaining about this book on political grounds either haven’t read it, or lacked the capacity to understand it. Indeed, the issue they complain about (the inclusion of a male character who cross-dressed to get close to his female victims) is barely even in the book at all, and certainly isn’t what the book is “about,” nor is it presented in a way that anyone could possibly find offensive who wasn’t deliberately looking for excuses to complain about something.
What is in the book, instead, is a delightfully complex tale of a pair of detectives attempting to solve a decades-old missing persons case whose initial investigation had been bungled by a police detective in the middle of a mental breakdown. Beyond the mystery, we are also treated to an incredibly rich collection of subplots involving the personal lives of a small but extraordinarily believable cast of characters. Admittedly, it took me several chapters to get myself up to speed regarding those characters’ history, having not read the previous books in the series, but that doesn’t detract from a story that captures the reader’s interest from page one and doesn’t let go until the conclusion nearly 1000 pages later.
And that, in fact, is my one point of criticism: the book is, quite frankly, excessively long, filled with tangents that seem just a little too great in number and just a little too long in duration. While I respect and celebrate that the novel isn’t only a mystery but also an interpersonal drama, the alternations between mystery and drama occasionally drifted into territory that made the novel feel just a bit of a slog in a few points. I can’t single out any one particular element that was uninteresting or that I think should have been cut entirely, but I can’t help but feel that it would have been a nearly perfect novel had it been 200 pages shorter. With none of the elements excluded but all of them presented just a smidge more succinctly (and with a bit more action and less exposition in certain parts), I think the book could have found its way into the pantheon of classic modern mysteries.
As it stands, it’s still no slouch. Despite some minor flaws (and certainly contrary to what the politically-minded naysayers would have you believe), it remains a great novel that manages to successfully hit emotional notes across the entire range of the human emotional spectrum, ranging from disgust and horror to grief and sorrow, to laughter and love. And it does this while delivering a mystery that never fails to keep the reader guessing. With regard to the mystery itself, I’m not at all ashamed to admit that I was not able to predict the ending despite all of the necessary clues being present throughout the text. If that’s not a good mystery, I don’t know what is! I began by pointing out that this was my first Cormoran Strike novel. It certainly won’t be my last. I highly recommend it.
4.0 out of 5 stars Troubled Blood is a troubled book!

I loved the sharing of Strike’s and Robin’s introspective self-examinations, and their increasingly open interactions with each other. The main mystery’s solution was both surprising and unexpected, and it satisfyingly tied up all the myriad loose ends. But, this book was a slog at times and nearly 300 pages too long. Way too much detail about the occult, the tarot, and the two astrological systems from the original investigation. The last chapter with Robin and Strike (almost) made the excruciatingly slow novel worth the wait!
4.0 out of 5 stars Another engrossing entry in the Cormoran Strike series
Reviewed in the United States on July 9, 2022
Troubled Blood takes a different tack from the previous books in JK Rowling’s Cormoran Strike series as it’s about Strike and Robin Ellacott trying to solve a 40-year-old missing person case. That means there aren’t many action packed suspenseful scenes where you feel like the characters are in any danger like most of the earlier books Instead they go about the case by tracking down suspects and people connected to the case from decades ago and trying to decipher a cryptic diary full of astrological and mystical references. Still it’s an engrossing book and there are some moving scenes with Strike and Robin’s family members and a few scary encounters with serial killers and gangsters. The main enjoyable feature of the novels, as always, is the tentative attraction and relationship between Cormoran and Robin. Lots of other good characters to meet in here too with different accents and individual eccentricities. Maybe not as enjoyable as some of the earlier books in terms of action and excitement, but still entertaining and well told, with some nice twists and surprises too.
