I might have passed this wonderful story by (like many other's probably) had I not found out who the author was--and so glad I did.
The two main characters, P.I. Strike, and office temp Robin, play off each other beautifully. A winning combination of characters moves this story along so well, I hated to see it end.
Lula, supermodel with an unusual (to say the least) family history, is dead when the book starts. One of her brother's begs Strike to take the case, as the police have all but closed the book on it, assuming it is a suicide. But is it? Did she jump from her apartment building, or was she pushed? P.I. Strike is persistent and clever in figuring it all out.
Rowling is brilliant in her remarkable ability to leave the Potter stories behind, and go forward with a completely different writing style. I look forward to her next surprise.
