Gripping thriller with a detective different to any other around.

Description

The acclaimed first crime novel by J.K. Rowling, writing under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith.

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.

Reviews

“The Cuckoo's Calling reminds me why I fell in love with crime fiction in the first place” (Val McDermid)

“One of the most unique and compelling detectives I've come across in years” (Mark Billingham)

“In a rare feat, Galbraith combines a complex and compelling sleuth and an equally well-formed and unlikely assistant with a baffling crime in his stellar debut . . . Readers will hope to see a lot more of this memorable sleuthing team” (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

"Utterly compelling . . . a team made in heaven and I can't wait for the next in the series " (Saga Magazine)

“This debut is instantly absorbing, featuring a detective facing crumbling circumstances with resolve instead of clichéd self-destruction and a lovable sidekick with contagious enthusiasm for detection . . . Kate Atkinson's fans will appreciate his reliance on deduction and observation along with Galbraith's skilled storytelling” (Booklist)

“Her crime debut beguilingly shows that she can renounce magic and yet be magical” (Sunday Times UK)

“The master is back. In The Cuckoo's Calling, a detective novel that Rowling published under the pseudonym of Robert Galbraith, she returns to the strengths that made Harry Potter – the beautiful sense of pacing, the deep but illusionless love for her characters – without sacrificing the expanded range of The Casual Vacancy. In doing so, she's written one of the books of the year” (Charles Finch, USA Today)

“The novel is the work of a master storyteller” (Daily Telegraph UK)
