Written under the pseudonym of Robert Galbraith, this is the first book of the Cormoran Strike series.
A private detective who was left incapacitated after he lost his leg against a land mine in Afghanistan. Broke, distressed and almost out of work, he stumbles upon the inconspicuous case, when John Bistrow asks for his help in the alleged suicide of his sister Lula Landry. Often called Cuckoo by her associates, she fell to her death and the police closed the files ruling it a suicide.
John Bistrow doesn’t agree, and Strike thrusts up to take the job, and experiences once in a lifetime opportunities, its almost surreal.
