'The Cuckoo's Calling reminds me why I fell in love with crime fiction in the first place' VAL MCDERMID


Now a major BBC drama: The Strike series

When a troubled model falls to her death from a snow-covered Mayfair balcony, it is assumed that she has committed suicide. However, her brother has his doubts, and calls in private investigator Cormoran Strike to look into the case.

Strike is a war veteran - wounded both physically and psychologically - and his life is in disarray. The case gives him a financial lifeline, but it comes at a personal cost: the more he delves into the young model's complex world, the darker things get - and the closer he gets to terrible danger . . .

A gripping, elegant mystery steeped in the atmosphere of London - from the hushed streets of Mayfair to the backstreet pubs of the East End to the bustle of Soho - The Cuckoo's Calling is a remarkable book. Introducing Cormoran Strike, this is the acclaimed first crime novel by J.K. Rowling, writing under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith.

The Cuckoo's Calling

I was dubious at first and put off starting the book as I expected to be disappointed. Seek not the reason.
However from the moment I started reading it, I loved it. I will not go into great literary analysis; no need. It is simply an enjoyable read, e icing and attention grabbing. Now, however I shall be waiting for Strike to reappear in his next adventure; Robin at his side.

Brilliant! More please!

I am sad to say that I knew JK wrote it before starting... But it is exactly the kind of fiction I love. Mysteries are my favourite and oh how fantastic this is. Great writing style, involving characters and story. I would love to read a whole series. Well done Robert! Good luck for the future! ;)
