Published under a pseudonym, J. K. Rowling’s brilliant debut mystery introduces Detective Cormoran Strike as he investigates a supermodel’s suicide in “one of the best books of the year” (USA Today). 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, creditors are calling, and after a breakup with his longtime girlfriend, he’s living in his office. Then John Bristow walks through his door with a shocking story: His sister, the legendary 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. Fast-paced and sharply drawn, this dazzling detective novel inspired Strike, the BBC crime drama series that has captivated millions of viewers worldwide.

Cormoran Strike est en visite dans sa famille en Cornouailles quand une inconnue l’approche pour lui demander de l’aide. Elle aimerait retrouver sa mère, Margot Bamborough, disparue dans des circonstances jamais éclaircies en 1974. Strike n’a encore jamais travaillé sur une affaire classée, et en l’occurrence, 40 ans se sont écoulés depuis les faits. Intrigué, il accepte, malgré le peu de chances de résoudre l’affaire et la longue liste des cas sur lesquels lui et son associée Robin Ellacott travaillent déjà. Cette dernière est embourbée dans un divorce déjà compliqué, ses sentiments pour Strike n’arrangeant rien. Petit à petit, l’enquête apparaît comme extraordinairement complexe. Sur leur chemin, Robin et Strike rencontrent des témoins peu fiables, s’interrogent sur des jeux de tarots, tout en poursuivant des pistes qui semblent mener vers un serial killer psychopathe. Ils apprendront bientôt, à leurs dépens, que même des affaires classées peuvent se révéler dangereuses… Ce cinquième volume de la série des Cormoran Strike, épique et labyrinthique à souhait, nous offre une lecture haletante. Incontestablement le meilleur roman de Robert Galbraith à ce jour. Traduit de l’anglais par Florianne Vidal

But despite the slim chance of success, he is intrigued and takes it on; adding to the long list of cases that he and his partner in the agency, Robin Ellacott, are currently working on. And Robin herself is also juggling a messy divorce and unwanted male attention, as well as battling her own feelings about Strike. As Strike and Robin investigate Margot’s disappearance, they come up against a fiendishly complex case with leads that include tarot cards, a psychopathic serial killer and witnesses who cannot all be trusted. And they learn that even cases decades old can prove to be deadly . . .

Intentant arribar al fons de la història, l’Strike i la Robin Ellacott, la seva antiga assistent i ara sòcia de l’agència, emprenen un camí sinuós que els porta des de les sales més recòndites i secretes del Parlament fins a una mansió senyorial perduda enmig del camp.

An unsettling cold case investigation ensnares Cormoran Strike and his partner in a web of dangerous secrets in this #1 New York Times bestseller, the inspiration for HBO Max’s acclaimed series C.B. Strike. When a troubled young man named Billy asks Cormoran Strike to help him investigate a crime he witnessed as a child, the private eye is left deeply troubled. While Billy is obviously mentally distressed and cannot remember many concrete details, there is something sincere about him and his story. But before Strike can question him further, Billy bolts from his office in a panic. Trying to get to the bottom of Billy’s story, Strike and Robin Ellacott — once his assistant, now a partner in the agency — set off on a twisting trail that leads them through the backstreets of London, into a secretive inner sanctum within Parliament, and to a beautiful but sinister manor house deep in the countryside. And during this labyrinthine investigation, Strike’s own life is far from straightforward. His newfound fame as a private eye means he can no longer operate behind the scenes as he once did. Plus, his relationship with his former assistant is more fraught than it ever has been; Robin is now invaluable to Strike in the business, but their personal relationship is much, much trickier than that. The most epic Robert Galbraith novel yet, Lethal White is “addictive, murderous fun” for British mystery lovers and crime fiction fans alike (Vox).

A disturbing package leads Detective Cormoran Strike and his assistant Robin Ellacott to investigate four dangerous murder suspects in this “magnetic” British mystery (Michiko Kakutani, New York Times) that inspired the acclaimed HBO Max series C.B. Strike. When Robin Ellacott opens an unexpected delivery, she is horrified to discover that it contains a woman’s severed leg. Her boss, private detective Cormoran Strike, is less surprised but just as alarmed. He suspects that four people from his past could be responsible — and any one of them is capable of sustained and unspeakable brutality. With the police focusing on the one suspect Strike has essentially ruled out, he and Robin take matters into their own hands and delve into the dark and twisted worlds of the other three men. But as more horrendous acts occur, time is running out for the two of them . . . Career of Evil is the third in J. K. Rowling’s highly acclaimed series featuring private detective Cormoran Strike and his assistant Robin Ellacott. A fiendishly clever mystery with unexpected twists around every corner, Career of Evil is also a gripping story of a man and a woman at a crossroads in their personal and professional lives.

Private investigator Cormoran Strike must track down a missing writer — and a sinister killer bent on destruction — in this “wonderfully entertaining” mystery (Harlan Coben, New York Times Book Review) that inspired the acclaimed HBO Max series C.B. Strike. 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, he discovers that Quine’s disappearance is no coincidence. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows. If the novel were published, it would ruin lives — meaning that almost everyone in his life would have motives to silence him. When Quine is found brutally murdered under bizarre circumstances, Strike must race against time to understand the motivation of a ruthless killer, a killer unlike any he has encountered before . . . A compulsively readable crime novel with twists at every turn, The Silkworm is the second in J. K. Rowling’s highly acclaimed series featuring Cormoran Strike and his determined young assistant, Robin Ellacott.

Written and photographed by Canadian freelance photojournalist, Robert J. Galbraith, this is a personal, daily account of the anarchy and horror that unfolded during five weeks of war in Iraq, in April and May 2003. The independent photojournalist, who also covers assignments for the New York Times, takes us away from the bright lights of the modern media giants, describing the misery of the war that many will never see or hear about, from the streets of Baghdad, Basra, Kirkuk, Arbil, Tikrit and Mosul. The author describes, first-hand, the main flaws in the Bush strategy to win the war in Iraq. It describes how a lack of coalition troops led to the looting and civil disorder that plagued the nation. Galbraith witnesses the looting of weapons from military warehouses which were then sold on the lawless streets of Samarra by children, while coalition troops drove by. He interviews families in Saddam City who were offered food, medicine and security to join the uprising against coalition troops. Every day was a battle for survival for the street orphans who formed gangs to survive extortion by rival gangs and rape by perverts released from Saddam’s prisons. He compares the relative calm in Basra and Kurdistan with the living hell of Baghdad.
