When a troubled model falls to her death from a snow-covered Mayfair balcony, it is assumed that she has committed suicide. However, her brother has his doubts, and calls in private investigator Cormoran Strike to look into the case.
Strike is a war veteran – wounded both physically and psychologically – and his life is in disarray. The case gives him a financial lifeline, but it comes at a personal cost: the more he delves into the young model’s complex world, the darker things get – and the closer he gets to terrible danger .

I had been waiting so long to read this book since it's by J.K. Rowling and I heard great things about it being a keeper. I thought this book was decent,at least better than the casual vacancy. I liked the ending and it did have a bit of a twist I didn't exactly see coming. The characters are unique and even though it was a rather long book the characters still kept my attention. I am looking forward to reading more of Cormoran Strike when the next novel comes out! I give this a B.
