Publisher's Summary

Winner of the 2016 Audie Mystery Award
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.
With the police focusing on the one suspect Strike is increasingly sure is not the perpetrator, he and Robin take matters into their own hands and delve into the dark and twisted worlds of the other three men. But as more horrendous acts occur, time is running out for the two of them....
A fiendishly clever mystery with unexpected twists around every corner, Career of Evil is also a gripping story of a man and a woman at a crossroads in their personal and professional lives. You will not be able to switch this audiobook off.

Good but far from the 2 first boks.

It is a good book, unnerving and lots of suspense but I found the relationship between Robin and Strike exagerated a little silly. I really dont understand why they workshop to getter anymore. I also was not very keen on the "ripper" story. To much gore and hate for my taste and the theme is "old".

Great job by the narrator. ..
