Cuckoo’s Calling

December 9th, 2013 - Posted in Library News -

cuckoo's callingby Robert Galbraith (really J.K. Rowling’s pseudonym), 455 pages, Adult Mystery

Lula Landry, gorgeous English supermodel, just fell from her penthouse balcony to her death. The media has no trouble believing the police’s verdict of suicide, after all, Lula lived in the fast lane, and everyone knows she has been on medication for mood swings as well.  That’s why when Lula’s brother shows up in Strike’s office, the veteran and struggling private investigator is taken by surprise. Strike is enduring a hard patch at the moment: the love of his life has just walked out, he is not only out of money, but overdue on shady loan payments, and is currently living in his office. Robin walks in to Strike’s office right before Lula’s brother; she has been sent there as a temporary secretary, and though Mr. Strike seems unprepared for her or for life in general, it has always been her secret dream to work for a private detective.
