My Review: 
The Cuckoo’s Calling is an amazing mystery written by J.K. Rowling under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith. There are so many complex layers to this novel which shows how brilliant Rowling is. I was so intrigued and curious to find out the murderer’s identity that I read the entire novel (all 455 pages) in one day.  I absolutely loved the main character Cormoran Strike- an intelligent  down and out detective with a rock star father he barely knows. Strike is about to lose everything until a wealthy man brings him a case that could save his career. This novel is perfect for any fan of crime mysteries and it’s part of a series which I can’t wait to read as well.
