Review: The Cuckoo's Calling

July 23, 2017

 

 

 

 

The detective novel “The Cuckoo’s Calling” by Robert Galbraith is a mystery novel, written by J.K Rowling. The hero of the Cuckoo’s Calling is Strike (a lumbering bear of a man with “the high, bulging forehead, broad nose and thick brows of a young Beethoven who had taken to boxing”) is part old-school private eye — a hard-luck tough guy with an almost existential take on life. Unfortunately for him, his private detective business isn’t doing so good; he’s low on rent and he’s now living in his office on a camp bed and resorted to noodle soup.

Two things immediately happen to change Strike’s luck and kick-start this novel: A smart, pretty office temp named Robin Ellacott shows up at his office to fill in as his assistant; and a seemingly cultivated but nervous new client by the name of John Bristow walks in the door and asks for help. Bristow’s case: Prove that the death of his adopted sister, the famous model Lula Landry, known as Cuckoo, was not a suicide, but a murder.

The story is such a gripping, enthralling ride to take you to a world of detectives and rogue media. Read to find out what happens!
