I've never really met anyone who doesn't like Rowling's work, and under her pseudonym Robert Galbraith enters the realm of new adult and adult fiction that is suitable for mature young adult readers too.
When a mysterious package is delivered to Robin Ellacott, she is horrified to discover that it contains a woman's severed leg.
Her boss, private detective Cormoran Strike, is less surprised but no less alarmed. There are four people from his past who he thinks could be responsible - and Strike knows that any one of them is capable of sustained and unspeakable brutality.
With the police focusing on the one suspect Strike is increasingly sure is not the perpetrator, he and Robin take matters into their own hands, and delve into the dark and twisted worlds of the other three men. But as more horrendous acts occur, time is running out for the two of them...
Why I can't wait
I love Rowling's writing and always have. Harry Potter was one of those series' that I read at a very young age when many people actually were not up to that level (which makes it seem like I'm bragging a bit, but I promise I'm not) so I really did grow up on Rowling's work. My mum owns The Casual Vacancy which I haven't read but have watched the adapation of it on television from the BBC, and I have to say I really loved it. So it looks as though I'm into her adult work too, and I'll be very interested in this because crime and mystery is probably, if I had to choose a favourite genre of all time, would be this.
I can't wait because all of Robert Galbraith's novels so far have been a huge success and I doubt this release will be any different.
Is anyone else excited for this?
