The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith (aka JK Rowling)

Get ready for another novel by a super author, Robert Galbraith aka JK Rowling!  It has nothing to do with Harry Potter, wizards, and magic, but with all the “can’t put down” readability.  Rowling has merged into mystery with touches of romance. 

The Cuckoo’s Calling is the first of a trilogy starring Cormoran Strike as a private detective.  He’s just had a disaster in his love life and an interesting and seemingly impossible case is requested of him.

The death of a super model is questioned by the model’s brother, although the police believe it was a suicide. 

Strike takes the case.  Realizing he’s short on money and help, a temp service accidentally sends him another secretary.  He takes her on expecting to employ Robin for just this case.

Robin, engaged to a man who doesn’t understand her eagerness at a low paying job, wants to learn how to be a detective.  The Silkworm       Career of Evil (Cormoran Strike, #3)

Set in London, it’s easy to feel the atmosphere and understand the tension built through the detective’s case and the lives of Strike and Robin mixing.

I have to admit that I’ve just finished The Silkworm, the second in the trilogy, and have found it just as intriguing.  This is another author that when a book is published, it has to be read!

Happy reading,
