The Cuckoo’s Calling

Robert
Galbraith is a strong name, he is a man writing about a
brooding, brutish and physically ox like ex solider, Cormoran
Strike.

Review of Robert Galbraiths crime novel – as we all know JK Rowlings nom de plume wasn’t immediately accepted for publication. Is it possible to review the book now knowing who really wrote it?
