supermodel Lula Landry, known to her friends as the Cuckoo,fell to her death
police ruled it a suicide, but her brother doesn’t believe it and walk through the door of a detective ,Cormoran Strike.
Strike is struggling in his own way to find work and losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, he takes up the case and with his temporary assistant Robin.The character of robin is a delight and I really liked that the friendship here remains ‘friendship’
The Cuckoo’s Calling is a delightful murder mystery especially the interactions of Strike with the wide cast of potential suspects and witnesses, most of them belonging to the world of British rich and famous,supermodels their rock-star boyfriends, desperate designers
And there is no point in saying Rowling’s writing is flawless as usual but here she has generously peppered it with a lot of abuses.
