After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. He has only to one client left, and he owes money everywhere. To make matter worse, he just broken up with his longtime girlfriend and is living in his office. He can’t even afford his new temporary assistant Robin. Then John Bristow, a former childhood friend, wants to hire him. His sister, supermodel Lula Landry (also known as Cuckoo) apparently committed suicide jumping to her death a few months earlier. John doesn’t believe it, and wants Strike to investigate. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers. I loved this new character—he is clever, sharp stubborn character with demons I am sure we haven’t fully discovered. I particularly liked his ebb and flow relationship with his quick witted sidekick secretary Robin. The novel is fast paced, the characters interesting and it has an ending that I did not see coming. Can’t wait for the next outing. 4 ½ out of 5.

Cormoran Strike is a private investigator down on his luck when a case involving a recently deceased supermodel Lulu Landry and a temporary secretary named Robin Ellacott enter his life. That J. K. Rowling can write a fine mystery. Strike is just the kind of damaged goods that makes him a sympathetic character and Robin is just the right counterpoint to his shambling ways. We can hope for more of this pair.
