Publisher Description

Published under a pseudonym, J. K. Rowling's brilliant debut mystery introduces Detective Cormoran Strike as he investigates a supermodel's suicide in "one of the best books of the year" (USA Today), the first novel in the brilliant series that inspired the acclaimed HBO Max series C.B. Strike   After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Strike is down to one client, creditors are calling, and after a breakup with his longtime girlfriend, he's living in his office. Then John Bristow walks through his door with a shocking story: His sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry -- known to her friends as the Cuckoo -- famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man. You may think you know detectives, but you've never met one quite like Strike. You may think you know about the wealthy and famous, but you've never seen them under an investigation like this.

Wow - wasn’t prepared to like as much as I did

Was a little put-off by it being written by JK Rowling but this was SO well written, and the plot and characters outstanding. I’m going to continue with the series!

Bloated in parts

Some parts seem very strung out and full of unnecessary detail once you get to the conclusion. But some fun characterization and interactions.

Satisfying Read

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, the writing is succinct, yet descriptive; just enough detail to allow the reader to use their own imagination. Highly recommend
