Description

The Cuckoo's Calling '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 latest book in the thrilling Strike series, LETHAL WHITE is out now! ***

    This type of book is the very reason my favourite genre is crime thriller ❤️ so sharp, so interesting and a brilliant story line. Love the characters, cannot wait to see this adapted for TV (really hope they do the books justice). I love this whole series and I cannot wait for lethal white and others that follow! By far my favourite author ✨
  • A riveting read

    I got this (cheaply) some time back and was sitting in in my iPad collection. I decided to read it and wasn't disappointed at all. Love the main character and the plot wove with layers of good storytelling. I'm definitely going to purchase the follow up book, Silkworm. So glad that JKR has thrown the mantle of Harry Potter off and headed in a new direction.
  • Enjoyable Read

    I ultimately enjoyed this book but I felt the first half of the book focused more on the establishing of the main characters and their back-story than plot development. I appreciate that the scene needs to be set but I felt that to some extent this was done at the expense of the storyline.The later half of the book featured more actual detective work and consequently moved along at a faster pace. I'm looking forward to reading the second in this series as I assume that with the characters and their situation already established the solving of a case will feature more prominently.

    Slow start to the story. Lots of other detail thrown in. Easy for writer to withhold facts and not share them with the reader. Felt frustrated. Enjoyed growing relationship with Strike and Robin and really wanted her to remain as his secretary. Great at the end when everything came out and ends were sewn up. Nice touch that Cormoran gave Robin that dress. What a nice guy !
  • Loved it!

    A book that makes you care about the character that the author has conceived; a clever, tortuous unravelling of clues, without arrogance. I immediately look for another book with Cameron Strike. Heartily recommended.
