Product description

Review

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

In a rare feat, Galbraith combines a complex and compelling sleuth and an equally well-formed and unlikely assistant with a baffling crime in his stellar debut . . . Readers will hope to see a lot more of this memorable sleuthing team - Publishers Weekly, starred review

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

Laden with plenty of twists and distractions, this debut ensures that readers will be puzzled and totally engrossed for quite a spell - Library Journal

Galbraith's characterisation is splendid and pops off the page, and his sense of place is rich and intense . . . I look forward to reading more about Cormoran Strike. He is fascinating to say the least - Shots

Full and original characters . . . a really good, solid mystery - Morning Star
