Когда скандально известная топ-модель, упав с заснеженного балкона своего пентхауса, разбивается насмерть, все решают, что это самоубийство. Но брат девушки не может смириться с таким выводом и обращается к услугам частного сыщика по имени Корморан Страйк.

Страйк прошел войну, пострадал физически и душевно; жизнь его несется под откос. Теперь он рассчитывает закрыть хотя бы финансовую брешь, однако расследование оборачивается коварной ловушкой. Углубляясь в запутанную историю юной звезды, Страйк приоткрывает тайную изнанку событий – и сам движется навстречу смертельной опасности. . .

Захватывающий, отточенный сюжет разворачивается на фоне Лондона, от тихих улиц благопристойного Мэйфера до обшарпанных пабов Ист-Энда и круглосуточно бурлящего Сохо – Зов Кукушки незаурядный и заслуженно популярный роман , в котором впервые появляется Корморан Страйк.

"Зов Кукушки напомнил мне, почему я в свое время без памяти влюбилась в детективный жанр".

Вэл Макдермид
‘One of the most unique and compelling detectives I’ve come across in years’

Mark Billingham
‘One of the best crime novels I have ever read’

Alex Gray
‘Every time I put this book down, I looked forward to reading more.  Galbraith writes at a gentle pace, the pages rich with description and with characters that leap out of them.
I loved it.  He is a major new talent.’

Peter James
‘Just once in a while a private detective emerges who captures the public imagination in a flash. And here is one who might well do that…
a delightful touch for evoking London and capturing a new hero’

Daily Mail
‘a scintillating debut novel… Galbraith delivers sparkling dialogue and a convincing portrayal of the emptiness of wealth and glamour’

The Times
‘astonishingly assured’

The Independent (Radar)
‘In a rare feat, Galbraith combines a complex and compelling sleuth and an equally well-formed and unlikely assistant with a baffling crime…
Readers will hope to see a lot more of this memorable sleuthing team’

Publishers Weekly
‘It’s really, really good – beautifully written with a terrific plot … It’s a terrific read, gripping, original and funny … Please, please give us more of Robert Galbraith and Cormoran Strike. I can’t wait for the next’

Richard & Judy review, Daily Express
‘Robert Galbraith has written a highly entertaining book… Even better, he has introduced an appealing protagonist in Strike, who’s sure to be the star of many sequels to come…. its narrative moves forward with propulsive suspense. More important, Strike and his now-permanent assistant, Robin (playing Nora to his Nick, Salander to his Blomkvist), have become a team — a team whose further adventures the reader cannot help eagerly awaiting.’

Michiko Kakutani, New York Times
