The Cuckoo S Calling Cormoran Strike Book 1
Now a major BBC drama: The Strike series.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
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
Introducing Cormoran Strike, this is 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
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.
