Episode #4: "The Silkworm (part 1)"

Debut date: FRIDAY, JUNE 22 (10:00-11:00 p.m.)

Strike's (Tom Burke) new client, Leonora Quine (Monica Dolan), wants help tracking down her missing husband, the once-infamous Owen Quine (Jeremy Swift), a former bad boy of the London literary scene, now toiling away in relative obscurity. Strike's first port of call is Liz Tassel (Lia Williams), Quine's agent, still smarting from her client's reckless behavior. She has dropped him from the agency after his bombastic, unpublished manuscript, "Bombyx Mori," caused a stir in the industry with its slanderous, thinly disguised fabulist portrayals.

"The Silkworm" also stars Natasha O'Keeffe, Kerr Logan, Tim McInnerny and Sarah Gordy; directed by Kieron Hawkes; written by Tom Edge; executive produced by Ruth Kenley-Letts, J.K. Rowling, Tom Edge and Neil Blair.
