The Cuckoo's Calling
Book #63 Read in 2014
The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith (aka JK Rowling)
This is the first in a series featuring private detective Cormoran Strike, a war veteran and son of a rock star. In this book, Strike is hired to look into the death of a supermodel; the police call it suicide but her brother believes it was murder. Strike looks into her death, with help from his trusty sidekick and assistant, Robin. He realizes that there is many layers to Landry's life and tries to untangle them to find out what really happened to her.
This book was a good read but a slow read for me. It bogged down a bit for me in the middle but picked up in the second half. I liked the character of Strike and I liked Robin. I have the second one in my TBR pile.
