by lyrics from a song by the American hard rock band Blue Oyster Cult Related News Title: Career of Evil Author: Robert Galbraith Publisher: Hachette India Pages: 495 Price: Rs 699 When Career of Evil the third in JK Rowling’s crime series under the pseudonym of Robert Galbraith opens private detective Cormoran Strike is besieged with problems Business has been ho-hum and his secretary Robin Ellacott with whom he has crackling chemistry and a strictly professional relationship is going through a rough patch with her long-time fiancé that Strike has no idea how to fix But it’s the severed human leg that is delivered to Robin by courier that throws things out of joint quite literally The leg in question is a woman’s and is accompanied by lyrics from a song by the American hard rock band Blue Oyster Cult There is little doubt who the message is intended for: Strike’s deceased super-groupie mother had the very lyrics tattoed on an intimate part of her body Soon as it turns out it isn’t a one-off murder The killer has revenge on his mind a macabre sense of humour knowledge of Strike’s unsettling past and a capacity for unspeakable horrors As the press dubs the murderer “the 21st-century Jack the Ripper” Strike narrows his suspects down to three men with predilections of the worst sort — rape paedophilia domestic violence prostitution and drug abuse As Strike’s search takes him across the country Galbraith provides readers with plenty of action and it’s evident that he (or rather Rowling who admits in the acknowledgement that “Robert Galbraith has always felt like my own private playground…”) is having fun while at it — there is a dizzying profusion of details plenty of red herrings and a veritable rogues’ gallery for Strike and Robin to comb through In a way Career of Evil is Galbraith’s darkest novel yet Much like the Harry Potter series that began on a light-hearted note and moved into a darker zone Galbraith’s novels too are gradually peeling off the mantle of sophistication that cloak urban life to reveal the grime underneath “Strike knew how deeply ingrained was the belief that the evil conceal their dangerous predilections… When they wear them like bangles for all to see the gullible populace laughs calls it a pose or finds it strangely attractive” Galbraith writes In both Strike’s previous outings the murders were just the starting point the tip of the iceberg which spiralled the novels into an exploration of the worlds of fashion and publishing In both Galbraith’s craft was closer to that of Agatha Christie or PD James than to modern day writers such as French sensation Pierre Lemaitre Like a sociologist he probed the cracks in society and the people who fell through them In this though Galbraith eschews the genteel and plunges straight into a heart of darkness “He had not managed to scrub off all her blood A dark line like a parenthesis lay under the middle fingernail of his left hand He set to digging it out although he quite liked seeing it there: a memento of the previous day’s pleasures” he writes of the serial killer There is blood and gore mutilations and graphic murders that sometimes appear a tad contrived Galbraith intersperses Strike’s investigation with chapters from the sociopath’s perspective and his delight in the mayhem he has carefully designed Yet and this is where Galbraith falters unlike Voldemort or the antagonists in Lemaitre’s novels for instance the murderer at the heart of Career of Evil is an unidimensional character whose depravity has little to do with circumstances and choices and more with mental illness Galbraith’s resolutions are not his strongest suit — The Silkworm suffered from an overdose of melodrama towards the end and Career of Evil walks the same path If the antagonist is a letdown the character who dazzles the most in this novel is Robin Galbraith uses this novel to flesh out her back story Caught in a relationship that is stuck in a rut and a job where her partnership seems precarious Robin’s anxieties strength and the trauma that has shaped her identity is brought to life with a deftness of touch reminiscent of the vivid characterisations of Rowling’s Harry Potter series And as the nightmare returns to haunt her during the present case Robin emerges luminous and spirited very much the heroine the novel required to hold it together when its pace flags For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express AppUpdated: March 16 2014 3:27 pm Top News When font god Mike Parker died last Sunday fans speculated about the appropriate look for his gravestone His name is identified with the Helvetica font which was instrumental in the modernisation of design during the Cold War From the 1960s to the ’90s it was the most frequently chosen sans serif font a foil to the ubiquitous serif Times New Roman Even today the Helvetica family provides the callout fonts of choice for print media and is found everywhere from newspaper headlines to underwear labels It is hot with logo designers for its solid but tidy look suggesting brand strength and reliability — Lufthansa Microsoft Toyota Jeep and 3M persist in memory because of the weight lent to their logos by Helvetica But epitaphs is one of the very few things that the font family is not good for Flowing serifs copperplate Gothic and faux Roman fonts go better with the idea of the hereafter in the Western imagination The assertive modernism of Helvetica would sit oddly with American funerary art But as it turned out Parker had chosen the Eastern way and did not need a headstone He was cremated and his ashes were scattered over his estate That was quite appropriate actually since Parker’s association with the font in the public imagination is somewhat imaginary He was not the father of Helvetica which was designed in Switzerland (as the name suggests) in 1957 by Max Miedinger and Edouard Hoffman and originally named Neue Haas Grotesk But it was a typeface for hand-set presses where the compositor made up the text laboriously letter by letter choosing them from two boxes of type — the upper and lower cases which now mean large and small characters That was too slow for media which had turned to the Linotype machine almost half a century earlier It composed much faster line by line rather than letter by letter from molten lead But Grotesk was not available for Linotype Parker’s genius lay in recognising that Helvetica’s time had come because the manner in which media was consumed had changed The days of closely printed masses of text was over A busy impatient age was upon the world which needed headlines callouts blurbs and captions to draw attention to the text For that it needed Helvetica a fork of Grotesk released for Linotype in 1960 It was one of the enablers of the second great wave of printing technology after the Gutenberg revolution In the span of Parker’s professional life composing technology moved from hot metal via photo-typesetting to the digital fonts that we use today — the third wave which features fonts like Verdana which were designed for the computer screen rather than the printed page Earlier presses frequently ran on a handful of fonts and computer owners did not care what fonts their machines contained But about two decades ago when desktop publishing kicked off and the Web discovered design and became beautiful computers began to be sold armed with hundreds of pre-loaded fonts These fonts had to look the same on paper and on the screen and had to be consistent across hardware architectures and operating systems This called for a degree of discipline which the font industry had not enjoyed earlier because it was not an industry at all Its artistic or artisanal temper now had to give way to the industrial-strength standardisation of the machine age and Parker was one of the key people who made it happen by coordinating font development across the Linotype ecosystem The philosophy was extended to Bitstream the first digital-only font repository which he co-founded By the time all of us needed multiple fonts across multiple devices and media standardisation had made it achievable Fonts colour communications A cheerful serif lightens the tone of a message a bold sans serif makes road signs harder to disobey Languages were mute on the internet until they had standardised fonts In Asia Chinese took the lead in developing its own fonts In India Tamil showed the way with the Anjal font which connected the diaspora from Toronto to Trincomalee In our region internet penetration is determined not so much by whether high-speed bandwidth is available but whether Asian language fonts for phones are available No one would fly Lufthansa if its logo was in Comic Sans rather than Helvetica No one could gaze upon a Helvetica epitaph without feeling creepy And Helvetica is so closely identified with Mike Parker that no one thought of Palatino a superb serif font that he had
