“…if we’re not careful, we can give people the impression that Christianity is first and foremost about the sacrifice we make for Jesus rather than the sacrifice Jesus made for us; our performance for him rather than his obedience for us. The hub of Christianity is not “do something for Jesus.” The hub of Christianity is “Jesus has done everything for you.” And my fear is that too many people, both inside and outside the church, have heard our pleas for intensified devotion and concluded that the focus of the Christian faith is our love for God instead of God’s love for us. Don’t get me wrong - what we do is important. But it’s infinitely less important than what Jesus has done for us.”
“Durante un corto paseo antes de irme a dormir vi las estrellas reflejadas en los charcos de lluvia y vi dos viejos árboles extraordinariamente hermosos en la orilla del río, cuyas aguas rumoreaban con estrépito bajo el viento nocturno. Los árboles seguirían siendo hermosos por la mañana, pero en este momento tenían la belleza mágica e irrepetible que procede de nuestra propia alma y que, según los griegos, sólo resplandece en nosotros cuando Eros nos ha dirigido su mirada.”
Hesse Hermann / En el balneario / En el balneario (fragmento)
When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, Mrs. Quine just thinks her husband 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 realizes. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows. If the novel were to be published, it would ruin lives-meaning that there are a lot of people who might want him silenced.
When Quine is found brutally murdered under bizarre circumstances, it becomes a race against time to understand the motivation of a ruthless killer, a killer unlike any Strike has encountered before… A compulsively readable crime novel with twists at every turn, THE SILKWORM is the second in the highly acclaimed series featuring Cormoran Strike and his determined young assistant, Robin Ellacott.
