The Cuckoo’s Calling” by Robert Galbraith introduces us to Camoron Strike, private detective. He has only one client, John Bristow, his supermodel sister, Lula, has fallen to her death. Murder or suicide? We get a look into the world of multi-million dollar models, rock star boyfriends, and desperate designers.
Strike checks into clues, asks the same tedious questions of everyone, and as the reader we change our minds many times as to what happened.
Strike’s past is explored as the novel progresses, rock star Father, amputee from serving in Afghanistan, living in his office, and has a new secretary, Robin, who puts his office in order and loves investigating.
We were surprised when we discovered the book is penned by J.K. Rowling. Completely different than the Harry Potter series, adult reading, no magic but lots of surprises.
