This new brick of a book is the latest Cormoran Strike novel from the pen of J K Rowling of Harry Potter fame writing under her pseudonym. Strictly for the grown ups this is a convoluted story of a troubled young man coming to Cormoran Strike for help,when Billy suddenly disappears Strike continues with the scant clues Billy has given him with surprising results. If you haven’t seen the TV series of Cormoran Strike then make an date to watch it, excellent viewing……but as always better reading and Lethal Strike is hot off the press.

Good one for the post-wine bookclub discussion.
