The Cuckoo's Calling is a gripping mystery that should appeal to Harry Potter fans and mystery fans alike (and if you happen to be both, this is surely a slam dunk). The book takes its inspiration from the classic hardboiled mystery genre, introducing a down-on-his-luck P.I. , Cormoran Strike. Just as his money’s about to run out, Strike is approached by supermodel Lula ‘Cuckoo’ Landry’s brother to investigate his sister’s alleged suicide. The brother is convinced that his sister was a murder victim, and now Strike must infiltrate the world of multimillionaire beauties and their assorted hangers-on, to prove Cuckoo’s brother right.
