The Cuckoo's Calling Synopsis

When a troubled model falls to her death from a snow-covered Mayfair balcony, it is assumed that she has committed suicide. However, her brother has his doubts, and calls in private investigator Cormoran Strike to look into the case. Strike is a war veteran - wounded both physically and psychologically - and his life is in disarray. The case gives him a financial lifeline, but it comes at a personal cost: the more he delves into the young model's complex world, the darker things get - and the closer he gets to terrible danger ...A gripping, elegant mystery steeped in the atmosphere of London - from the hushed streets of Mayfair to the backstreet pubs of the East End to the bustle of Soho .

The Cuckoo's Calling Press Reviews

The Cuckoo's Calling reminds me why I fell in love with crime fiction in the first place -  Val McDermid

 

One of the most unique and compelling detectives I've come across in years -  Mark Billingham

 

One of the best crime novels I have ever read  - Alex Gray

 

Everytime I put this book down, I looked forward to reading more. Galbraith 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 James

 

Just once in a while a private detective emerges who captures the public imagination in a flash. And here is one who might well do that ... There is no sign that this is Galbraith's first novel, only that he has a delightful touch for evoking London and capturing a new hero. An auspicious debut -  Daily Mail
