This is the first of the Cormoran Strike novels written by JK Rowling under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith. The story revolves around a beautiful troubled model Lula Landry who one cold snowy winters night falls from the balcony of her penthouse London flat. Was it suicide or was she pushed? Her br...

... and really, is there anything she can't write? This may not be the most ingenious of plots (supermodel with "issues" falls to her death from the balcony of her high rise apartment; after the police have declared her death a probable suicide and closed the case, her brother shows up at the offi...

My latest load of books. In the attempt to get a VIP card from a local bookstore, a brand from Taiwan, I have to buy a lot. So I tried and tried to find enough books for me to buy in order to become member. This is in the pile. The surprise is how readable this is. I read the latest one Car...

Public Service Announcement: Robert Galbraith = J.K. Rowling, of Harry Potter fame and the almost-singlehanded ensurer of the continuation of the love of reading in the Millennial Generation. Pretty sure most people know that already but just in case, I wanted to put it out there. Knowing that reall...

#1 Cormoran Strike Ok so as you can see it took me more than a month to read it. At first I was not enjoying it so much, mystery is really not my cup of tea. But I decided to give it a try because it's J.K. Rowling and every time I read a mystery (let's be honest it happens one time a year) I end ...
