When a childhood friend asks PI Cormoran Strike to investigate the suspicious-looking suicide of his supermodel sister, Strike battles personal demons in order to revive his career and prevent the killer from striking again.
I am really, really picky when it comes to crime novels. I don’t love the genre in its own right, and I’m not generally a fan of recurring detectives. However, I’m desperately hoping that JK Rowling is planning to write more murder mysteries featuring Cormoran Strike because I just loved The Cuckoo’s Calling. Way more than I thought I would. Not only was the plotting exceptional, but she is just so gifted with descriptions and small turns of character. I enjoyed every single word.
