The Cuckoo's Calling Robert Galbraith read online review & book description:

Published under a pseudonym, J. K. Rowling's brilliant debut mystery introduces Detective Cormoran Strike as he investigates a supermodel's suicide in "one of the best books of the year" (USA Today).
After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Strike is down to one client, creditors are calling, and after a breakup with his longtime girlfriend, he's living in his office.
Then John Bristow walks through his door with a shocking story: His sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry -- known to her friends as the Cuckoo -- famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man.
You may think you know detectives, but you've never met one quite like Strike. You may think you know about the wealthy and famous, but you've never seen them under an investigation like this.
Fast-paced and sharply drawn, this dazzling detective novel inspired Strike, the BBC crime drama series that has captivated millions of viewers worldwide.

    I had really high hopes for this book. Unfortunately it was so slow moving that I couldn’t even finish it
  • Satisfying Read

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book, the writing is succinct, yet descriptive; just enough detail to allow the reader to use their own imagination. Highly recommend
  • Highly recommend this series for murder mysteries

    Robert (aka J.K.) knows how to give you all the clues blatantly on the page but keep you guessing at who done it and how they fit together. You’ll be engulfed at the solving of the mysteries in this series while falling in love (or hate) with the characters along the way. For those just starting the series I’ll say the first book starts slow and every book after picks up in mystery, development and gore. The most recent book in the series had me pacing and pondering every chapter while yelling at characters in the book for rookie mistakes. I recommend and gift this series to everyone! 5/5 stars!

    My new favorite series. I’m totally obsessed and gift this book to all friends new to Robert Galbraith. You cannot put it down once you start. It’s so incredibly well written and fascinating to read. Cormoran Strike is a brilliant character.

    The first book of the series is not as great as I expected. The crime itself is not that complicated and the story is little slow moving. I will recommend it only if you are a big fan of J.K, otherwise I think there are other better detective novels out there.

    At the end of this read I was disappointed with the premise of the entire story…. Made no sense to me… But the personalities of the two main characters, Strike and Robin, are interesting at least.
