The acclaimed first crime novel by J.K. Rowling, writing under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith.
Born in 1968, Robert Galbraith is married with two sons. After several years with the Royal Military Police, he was attached to the SIB (Special Investigation Branch), the plain-clothes branch of the RMP. He left the military in 2003 and has been working since then in the civilian security industry. The idea for protagonist Cormoran Strike grew directly out of his own experiences and those of his military friends who have returned to the civilian world. 'Robert Galbraith' is a pseudonym.
The Cuckoo's Calling reminds me why I fell in love with crime fiction in the first place - Val McDermidOne of the most unique and compelling detectives I've come across in years - Mark BillinghamEverytime I put this book down, I looked forward to reading more. Gabraith writes at a gentle pace, the pages rich with description and with characters that leap out of them. I loved it. He is a major new talent. - Peter JamesIn a rare feat, Galbraith combines a complex and compelling sleuth and an equally well-formed and unlikely assistant with a baffling crime in his stellar debut . . . Readers will hope to see a lot more of this memorable sleuthing team. - Publishers Weekly, starred review
