The Cuckoo's Calling

Robert Galbraith

The Cuckoo's Calling is a 2013 crime fiction novel by J. K. Rowling, published under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith.

A brilliant mystery in a classic vein: Detective Cormoran Strike investigates a supermodel's suicide.

After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Strike is down to one client, and creditors are calling. He has also just broken up with his longtime girlfriend and is living in his office.

Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: His sister, thelegendary supermodel Lula Landry, known to her friends as the Cuckoo, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man.

You may think you know detectives, but you've never met one quite like Strike. You may think you know about the wealthy and famous, but you've never seen them under an investigation like this.

The Silkworm

Robert Galbraith

When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, Mrs. Quine just thinks her husband has gone off by himself for a few days-as he has done before-and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home.

But as Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine's disappearance than his wife realizes. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows. If the novel were to be published, it would ruin lives-meaning that there are a lot of people who might want him silenced. When Quine is found brutally murdered under bizarre circumstances, it becomes a race against time to understand the motivation of a ruthless killer, a killer unlike any Strike has encountered before... A compulsively readable crime novel with twists at every turn, THE SILKWORM is the second in the highly acclaimed series featuring Cormoran Strike and his determined young assistant, Robin Ellacott.

Fill Your Tote Bag with Books for the Summer

Summer break is just around the corner and it's time to start planning the perfect trip away.

Whether you can get away or not, these books are perfect companions for the summer heat.


Load up your e-reader with FREE books

There is nothing better than opening a new e-reader and instantly filling it with books upon book upon books before the battery is even fully charged. But sometimes it is hard to know what is worth your time and what is not, especially when it comes to picking free books or new authors to try. The great thing about ebooks is that you can try almost any genre out before committing to something you may not want. Like take a step back in time with some favorite classics, discover a new romance, or even sample bestsellers before your friends--all for the price of 'free'.

Return to Downton Abbey

Downton Abbey returns on Sunday, January 5th on Masterpiece Theatre and as a hit with all ages we're ready to help you prepare.

Best-selling Books for Christmas

The best of the best make the lists this month as must-buy books before the year is over and done. From the fun and fanciful, to a new addition in a popular series. This year's Noble Prize winning author's collection of heartwrenching stories compliments the country's most revered thriller writer as he tackles a classic tale. These bestsellers represent a rainbow of talent and compelling storytelling.


Time for Books to be thankful


Emotional autumn reads to curl by the fire.

Cooling weather means curling up under a blanket and losing yourself in a book. Winter is the season of emotions and the right story can enrapture you for hours. Be it a haunting tale about a young girl slowly losing her grip on reality, or a new couple trying to navigate their passionate romance. Or how about a mystery that harkens back to the tales of your kooky southern grandma, or even venturing into worlds that look nothing like our own. This week try out some reads that are guaranteed to pull your heartstrings and leave you wanting more.


Carpool Lane Reads

With kids back in school that means moms (and dads) can now be found parked in the carpool lane before afternoon classes end. As a captive audience why not spend the time in the front seat reading some hot new books. Slip into the story of a young woman whose perfect-seeming life is anything but, or a novel with a husband whose secrets are bursting at the seams. Read about a time traveling dragon determined to end humanity, or question if your neighbors are really who they make themselves out to be. You can find all these novels in bookstores or in e-format for your favorite reader.


Time To Kickstart Your Book Club

School is starting back up and book clubs are coming back from the summer break. But what to pick as a selection to stir interest and rev up the reading? We've got an assortment of every type of book to appeal to even the most jaded reader: dive into the background of todayís suspense authors with an anthology of the women suspense writers who came before, or get ready for the fall television season with a book a new series is based on, or a contemporary novel of relationships surviving through changes, and even a modern gothic. Youíll find something in our bag to discuss at your book club.

Summer Sizzlers

Summer is heating up, but that doesnít mean you have to. Stay cool with some reads you might have missed, or get ahead of the trends that all your friends will be talking about come August. Whether youíre looking for a chilling thriller, a mystery with a furry friend, a romantic getaway on the run, or something spicy to keep you up all night, these five books might just be the next big thing.


Books For The Fourth

July Fourth is just a few days away and families are packing up for a weekend at the beach, or maybe preparing for the neighborhood block party or friendly get together. But you can beat the heat with more than just an icy treat. From stories about women trying to piece their families back together, to one struggling to understand her young son's cruelty, staying cool has never been more suspenseful. You can honor the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg or you can just sit back and watch young love unfold at a beach resort. Enjoy a vacation in your mind, no sunscreen required!


Summer Wedding Fever

Summer love is in the air and even if you're happily settled, or still looking, you can find wedded romance in a good book. Look through the eyes of a dressmaker trying to find love, a group of gossipy friends, a runaway bride unsure of her choices, or even a werewolf searching for Mrs. Right. Whether you're the blushing bride or an eager daydreamer, there's no denying the pull and excitement of a summer wedding.

Reads Ahead of the Trend

As stylish as you are in your appearance sometimes the perfect accessory is a hot book, but what to pick? For the woman who enjoys crafts we have the perfect book full of southern charm. Stay ahead of trends with a haunting story for the younger reader or a sexy update to a classic story. Embrace the glamour and stardom of early Hollywood or hop on a spaceship in search of a free world. If youíre the kind of person who likes the latest and greatest here are six books, perfect to your style.


Thrills, Chills and a bit of Suspense

Sometimes it's fun to escape from the real world through a great book. In the real world you can't follow a serial killer, or have dinner with a vampire, or even find yourself wrapped up in a spicy office romance. But a good book entices and excites, and there is nothing better than losing yourself in a suspenseful thriller. This week the Mystery Writers of America announce their winners of the 2013 Edgars at a banquet held in New York. Widely acclaimed to be the crowning of the best in suspense and mystery, the Edgars (named after Edgar Rice Burroughs) celebrate the best writing in everything from television scripts to novels.


Spring Fever

Spring is officially here and the timing is perfect to discover new and uncharted fantastical lands. Whether you're taking a trip to a newly re imagined Wonderland, or fighting demons with a grumpy reluctant angel or watching the sunset from a hundred year old beach house, these books are sure to delight and engage any reader--no matter their age.


Escaping on Spring Break

Spring is right around the corner, and families are planning their trips to the beach or taking advantage of one last good week of snow for skiing. But what do you do when you've tucked the kids in for the night, or you need something to keep them occupied during the drive home? Reading is the best activity for any spring break down time. Escape to the glamor of old Hollywood, or time travel with some tough demon hunters. You can also expand your mind with a stellar debut novel, or watch a young romance flourish through mix tapes. And don't forget about something spicy to read when everyone else is asleep. Even if you aren't going anywhere for spring break, or your holiday is over, picking up a book is the perfect excuse for adventure.


Books Inspired by Movies

Glamour, excitement, red carpets popping up EVERY WHERE! It's the annual biggest party for movies and every one is talking about film! So why not change the subject just a bit and talk about some of the books that either inspired the films or are reading to continue to keep you in the mood? We've got everything from a suspense set in New Orleans after Katrina to the story of Mrs. Lincoln's dressmaker, to the real life adventures of Tony Mendez and a little something in between.


Valentine's Day

Hearts are everywhere you look...in the stores, on line, and it's time to think about Valentine's Day! So let's look at some books that reflect our feelings about Valentine's Day. From a classic love tale to the emotional angst of young love, we've got the spectrum covered for your Valentine Day reading!
