NOT YOUR HARRY POTTER
A BUZZARD BOOK REVIEW
SO MANY BOOKS - SO LITTLE TIME
J.K. Rowling has a begun a mystery series by the pseudonym of Robert Galbraith. It features a hard boiled detective in the manner of Raymond Chandler’s Philip Marlowe.
In the first of the series The Cuckoo’s Calling we are introduced to Comoran Strike, a thirty-five year old Afghan war veteran that lost his leg in combat, and his newly acquired secretary Robin Ellacott.
Anyone that is a fan of classic Dashell Hammett, Micky Spillane and Chandler will fall right in to this updated version of Rowling’s new British Private Eye.
This in not your Harry Potter; but a hard drinking, hard smoking, hard fighting one legged private eye and his sidekick secretary.
If you like mysteries you might give this a try.
