absolutely. the narration was excellent. a Brit reading British dialogue is much better than reading it.
the characters were interesting, good interaction. the plot was good. I did not see it coming, which is always good..
Cormoran - really great - gruff, hard-bitten and very likeable
Suspense, intrig, awesome narration
You never are able to figure out who the killer is.
The scenes in which the temp and the PI worked together.
Absolutley, but I also loved making it last as long as I could for longer enjoyment.
I am counting the hours until book two "Silkworm" downloads in about 2 hours. It is 6-18-14

Great introduction to a new lead character. Very colorful characters throughout this book and a nice, compelling albeit lightweight story. A great little piece of entertainment for those of us who like mysteries.
I love to read and I love write!
The story line was great
Very Well Written
Great book. I normally not into mysteries but this book had me glued!!
After discovering that the author is really JK Rowling, I read the reviews and decided to spend my new credit. I'm so glad I did. The story held my interest, the reader was very easy to listen to, the two main characters were completely likable. I started listening to it again the next day after I finished it because I wanted to see what I'd missed the first time around. I enjoyed it even more. Great book!
Thought this written under jkrowlings pseudonym would be interesting but didn't like storyline. Took too long to get to meat of it
Took too long too much descriptive details about what they were wearing
Yes. The performance was amazing! Robert Glenister did an amazing job portraying different characters by utilizing different accents throughout the book. It was so entertaining that it connected the reader to type of character the author was trying to demonstrate.
I really liked Gee Some and Marlene Hicks....simply funny characters.
No, I haven't but I will look him up now.
Entertaining read, would definitely recommend!
Cuckoo's Calling's vivid, lovingly drafted characters and scenes take the reader on an intricate adventure through modern London. The narration captivates from the very first moment. Maybe the best mystery I've heard in several years. Don't miss it.
There were too many F-words. Less vulgarity would have made this a lot better.
disappointment in the use of so many, un needed F-words.
The story is great, the characters and plot are fantastic but seriously - the amount of F-words is ridiculous. Most weren't necessary and didn't impact the story or dialogue in a way that if they were gone the same emotions wouldn't have been felt.
Only read/listen if you are okay with hearing the F-word 300+ times.
The book took me by surprised because I don't normally read a mystery thriller kind of book, but I took a chance on this one. I'm glad I did.
Robert Glenister was an excellent choice to read this novel and the author - yes, I know who wrote it, really blew me away with the writing style. Very different from her YA books-- but that aside, I know I would have enjoyed this book even if I had not known who it was. I was drawn to checking it out because I knew she penned them, but I didn't love it BECAUSE it was her, if that makes sense.
Anyway-- take a chance with this. It was great. I loved it.
