Excerpt from The Cuckoo’s Calling

I hope you had a great Valentine’s Day. Did you see my Valentine’s Day post this year? (As usually, it’s not exactly a warm, fuzzy, mushy romantic post.)

This weekend I am releasing the next book in the Reg Rawlins series, The Telepathy of Gardens. Be sure to check back and have a look. Or preorder now to have it delivered Friday!

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme. Read the rules and more teasers at The Purple Booker. Anyone can play along.

I am just finishing up with The Cuckoo’s Calling, first book in the Cormoran Strike series. I didn’t realize until I just looked over the series page now that the author is Robert Galbraith—I recognized the name but didn’t remember that’s J.K. Rowling’s pen name. I have also read book four in this series, but don’t remember very much about it.

“It’s be better for John if he’d just accept the facts. She killed herself. The rest of the family have come to terms with it, I don’t know why he can’t.”

Robert Galbraith, The Cuckoo’s Calling

After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Strike is down to one client, and creditors are calling. He has also just broken up with his longtime girlfriend and is living in his office.

Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: His sister, thelegendary supermodel Lula Landry, known to her friends as the Cuckoo, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man.
