I finished Cuckoo’s Calling. It’s the best book I have read since Allan Quatermain, and I have read a lot of good books lately. I have already put the next Cormoran Strike book on hold at the library. Besides being a great detective novel (I had the killer on my short list of suspects), it’s […]

When Billy, a troubled young man, comes to private eye Cormoran Strike’s office to ask for his help investigating a crime he thinks he witnessed as a child, Strike is left deeply unsettled. While Billy is obviously mentally distressed, and cannot remember many concrete details, there is something sincere about him and his story.
