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 .A gripping, elegant mystery steeped in the atmosphere of London - from the hushed streets of Mayfair to the backstreet pubs of the East End to the bustle of Soho - The Cuckoo's Calling is a remarkable book. Introducing Cormoran Strike, this is a classic crime novel in the tradition of P. D. James and Ruth Rendell, and marks the beginning of a unique series of mysteries.

        Just So Stories - SIGNED BY ARTIST

      Folio Press London 2013 - This is the most elaborate of these special limited editions. Every detail has been carefully considered and created using the finest materials. Each volume is quarter-bound in vellum, the spine blocked in 22-carat gold. The binding vividly depicts the Leopard in four different metallic foils. Altogether we used six different paper types and worked with five printing houses, each with expertise in specific media and techniques. As you will see from the enclosed brochure, each copy also features a hand-printed etching of the Painted Jaguar, hand-numbered and signed by the artist. It has been tipped in by hand and set within a decorative gold border, with the adjacent page printed letterpress to achieve a harmonious typographic arrangement. It was important to us to find an introducer who had a strong personal connection with the stories – someone who would reflect the nostalgia that so many people, myself included, feel for them. Former Children’s Laureate Michael Morpurgo expresses these sentiments beautifully in his introduction, with his abiding memories of hearing the book read aloud by his mother. Morpurgo has also said that without this experience, he would never have become a children’s writer himself – and anyone who has loved War Horse, Private Peaceful or any of Morpurgo’s many stories, knows how great a loss that would have been.
