'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! ***

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

Everytime I put this book down, I looked forward to reading more. Galbraith writes at a gentle pace, the pages rich with description and with characters that leap out of them. I loved it. He is a major new talent - Peter James

Laden with plenty of twists and distractions, this debut ensures that readers will be puzzled and totally engrossed for quite a spell - Library Journal

Galbraith's characterisation is splendid and pops off the page, and his sense of place is rich and intense . . . I look forward to reading more about Cormoran Strike. He is fascinating to say the least - Shots

Full and original characters . . . a really good, solid mystery - Morning Star
