The Cuckoo's Calling

I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway. I was super excited. I am not a big mystery or thriller person, but I thought I’d give this one a go. This is definitely a set-up book. The fact that there will be others make it easier to understand why it is so slow. In this novel we get to learn a lot about Cormoran Strike’s character and motivations. I enjoyed this book and the twists it took, however, I was able to figure out who did it about 200 pages in, which for me is unusual. So I would say the book is predictable and not that special in the genre. However, it is well written, entertaining and there is good character development. I have high hopes that this series will get better and better with every book
