Plot Synopsis

Adapted from J.K. Rowling's global bestselling novels written under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith, C.B. STRIKE is a one-hour series that centers on Cormoran Strike, a war veteran turned private detective operating out of a tiny office in London's Denmark Street. Though he's wounded both physically and psychologically, Strike's unique insight and his background as an SIB Investigator prove crucial to solving three complex cases which have eluded the police. Though she begins as a temporary secretary, managing Strike's chaotic life, Robin soon becomes involved with his caseload and begins to see her true potential. The series includes stories based on all three books: "The Cuckoo's Calling" (three episodes) was published to critical acclaim in 2013 and went on to be a global bestseller, followed in 2014 by "The Silkworm" (two episodes) and "Career Of Evil" in 2015 (two episodes). C.B. STRIKE had its U.S. premiere on Friday, June 1, 2018 at 10pm ET/PT on Cinemax.
On Friday, July 13, 2018 at 10pm ET/PT, Cinemax premiered "Career of Evil (Part 2)," the finale of C.B. STRIKE. Strike and Robin's partnership reaches a breaking point as Robin's wedding approaches; they disagree about how to catch a man who abuses children.
