    The mining ship El Cavador is far out from Earth, in the deeps of the Kuiper Belt, beyond Pluto. Other mining ships, and the families that live on them, are few and far between this far out. So when El Cavador’s telescopes pick up a fast-moving object coming in-system, it’s hard to know what to make of it. It’s massive and moving at a significant fraction of the speed of light.

    El Cavador has other problems. Their systems are old and failing. The family is getting too big for the ship. There are claim-jumping corporate ships bringing Asteroid Belt tactics to the Kuiper Belt.

    After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: his sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, 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.

    Tracey says: "Unbelievable debut mystery set in London"
    "You won't even know"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This as a crime novel is an amazing listen. I would definitely refer this book because it has everything you need ask for in a book. It has great characters. A great partnership like Batman and Robin with less superhero, yet hero nonetheless, action. Great Story building and crime solving. The narration is also to the point. Thick British accent at times but fits right well into the story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Strike was the best part about the story. He is the main character but what makes him my favorite is that he is very 'human'. His background story makes him very strong yet very fragile.


    Any additional comments?

    So by now everyone probably knows that Robert Galbraith is a pseudonym of J.K. Rowling. If you have read The Casual Vacancy by her then you will know that it has almost same kind of diction used.

    This is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

    Where does The Name of the Wind rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It starts out slow but it turns into a great story. Keeps you on your toes the after half way mark. In the first half, story is developed and characters are all settling in to place. In the end, you can't wait for the second book. It's a great listen if you like books of adventure and adolescent growth with lots of magic and music.


    What about Nick Podehl’s performance did you like?

    He has a great voice technique. All characters have distinct voices and you will get lost in the story, the way he tells it.


    Any additional comments?

    One of the best books out there.
