    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"

    Would you listen to The Cuckoo's Calling again? Why?

    This story had me interested from the moment it started. Great narration and the story line was great. Definitely recommend!

    Ayla, one of the most remarkable and beloved heroines in contemporary fiction, continues to explore the world and the people around her with curiosity, insight, and, above all, courage. As the story opens, Ayla, Jondalar, and their infant daughter, Jonayla, are living with the Zelandonii in the Ninth Cave - a shelter of stone. Ayla has been chosen as an acolyte and has embarked on the arduous task of training to become a spiritual leader.

    What would have made The Land of Painted Caves better?

    I read the reviews but having read all the other books, I wanted to finish the series. A major disappointment. Lackluster plot, redundant verse and basically a knock off review of previous books. Old ideas were not only reintroduced, but repeated constantly when they had no need. This book runs out of gas quickly.


    Has The Land of Painted Caves turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I enjoy this genre of books however if another one surfaced with these characters, I think I would not read.


    Did Sandra Burr do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Sandra Burr did a fair job on the narration however I don't know how she stayed awake to finish it.
