Hey guys, it’s Remi. Happy Saturday! How are you?
Today I’m joining Nikki @TheNightIsDarkAndFullOfBooks for Searching Saturday. The topic this week is ‘Authors I’ve Read Before’. Search for books by authors you’ve read before.
– The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith a.k.a. J.K. Rowling
In 2010, Cormoran Strike, a private investigator who is an ex-SIB investigator who lost part of a leg in a bombing in Afghanistan, and also is the illegitimate son of a famous rock star (by an affair with a notorious groupie), is broke, and his birth father’s business agent is calling in the loan that he gave to Strike to open his office. At that point, Strike is hired by John Bristow, the adoptive brother of supermodel Lula Landry who had fallen from her balcony three months previously. Bristow wants Strike to investigate his sister’s supposed suicide. Bristow’s other sibling, a brother named Charlie, had been a schoolmate of Strike before his death, which came when he fell into a quarry while riding on his bicycle. Strike also meets Robin Ellacott, who has been sent to be his temporary secretary despite the fact he can barely afford her. Robin has just become engaged to her longtime boyfriend Matthew, with a wedding set for December. Although Strike only hires her for one week, she turns out to be much more competent than he expected, and they end up extending her stay. (From: Goodreads)
