'The work of a master storyteller'

Daily Telegraph

'One of crime's most engaging duos'



Private Detective Cormoran Strike is contacted by a worried father whose son, Will, has gone to join a religious cult in the depths of the Norfolk countryside.

The Universal Humanitarian Church is, on the surface, a peaceable organisation that campaigns for a better world. Yet Strike discovers that beneath the surface there are deeply sinister undertones, and unexplained deaths.

In order to try to rescue Will, Strike's business partner Robin Ellacott decides to infiltrate the cult and she travels to Norfolk to live incognito amongst them. But in doing so, she is unprepared for the dangers that await her there or for the toll it will take on her . . .

Utterly page-turning, The Running Grave moves Strike and Robin's story forward in the epic, unforgettable seventh instalment of the series.

Reviews for The Running Grave (#7 Cormoran Strike)

"Riveting (. . .) a tale of how the human desire for approval, validation and a sense of purpose can sometimes lead us astray (. . .) The Running Grave is testimony to Galbraith's skill as a storyteller * GUARDIAN * Moving, gripping and terrifying * DAILY MAIL * A rich, immersive experience * SUNDAY TIMES * The kind of book you are happy to lose yourself in * SCOTSMAN * A pleasure * OBSERVER * The best duo in detective fiction since Reginald Hill's Dalziel and Pascoe * TELEGRAPH * Another absolute barnstormer ... Unmissable * HEAT * This is definitely one of the year's best reads, and all the more pleasurable because it's such an immersive experience * SUNDAY TIMES CULTURE (Best Crime Novel of 2023) * The Running Grave is pure joy -- Sophie Hannah * Mail on Sunday * The genre of crime fiction is such a wide one... it's often difficult to pin down which books are the best. However, THE RUNNING GRAVE by Robert Galbraith is a front-runner by any, and every, standard ... [it] isn't just a gripping mystery but a brutal glimpse into how cults work. [Galbraith] nails the slow burn of indoctrination and how even those of ""sound mind"", intelligence and even scepticism, can find themselves trapped -- Anne Cunningham * Sunday Independent *"
