Robert Galbraith is a pseudonym for J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series and THE CASUAL VACANCY.
"Combines a complex and compelling sleuth and an equally well-formed and unlikely assistant with a baffling crime...A stellar debut." - Publishers Weekly, starred review"Instantly absorbing, featuring a detective facing crumbling circumstances with resolve instead of cliched self-destruction and a lovable sidekick with contagious enthusiasm for detection. Strike bears little resemblance to Jackson Brodie, but Kate Atkinson's fans will appreciate his reliance on deduction and observation along with Galbraith's skilled storytelling." - Booklist"THE CUCKOO'S CALLING reminds me why I fell in love with crime fiction in the first place." - Val McDermid, bestselling author of Trick of the Dark"Cormoran Strike is an amazing creation and I can't wait for his next outing. Strike is so instantly compelling that it's hard to believe this is a debut novel. I hope there are plenty more Cormoran Strike adventures to come. A beautifully written debut novel introducing one of the most unique and compelling detectives I've come across in years." - Mark Billingham, author of The Dying Hours
