The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith
When a troubled model falls to her death from a Mayfair balcony, it is assumed that she has committed suicide. However, her brother has his doubts and calls in private detective Cormoron Strike to investigate.
Strike is a war veteran – wounded both physically and psychologically – and his private 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 world, the darker things become and the loser he gets to terrible danger…
(Published to huge acclaim from readers, reviewers and writers, ‘The Cuckoo’s Calling’ was later revealed to have been written by J.K.Rowling, under the Robert Galbraith pseudonym)
