♥ ♥ ♥ You certainly wouldn’t think that this is a debut novel for Robert Galbraith, but it is… and it isn’t! It’s really J.K. Rowling writing her first crime novel under this pen name. You’re pulled directly into the life of a one-legged Private Detective whose wrecked private life keeps you almost as interested as the death of the world famous super model he’s investigating. The characters are, well, characters in the most awesome sense of the word. The folks who surrounded the super model were everything from a homeless woman, to the eccentric, to the gorgeous, famous and uber-rich. There’s no keeping yourself from loving the unconventional Cormoran Strike, the detective who is paid and absurd fee to prove that the model’s death was murder, not suicide.
The audio book was well narrated and the pace of the story-line never waned. A definite, good, solid, who-done-it read.
