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.
very entertaining mystery written by jk rowling under the false name ....not as good as harry potter, but very entertaining
A Wicked War presents the definitive history of the 1846 war between the United States and Mexico - a conflict that turned America into a continental power. Amy Greenberg describes the battles between American and Mexican armies, but also delineates the political battles between Democrats and Whigs - the former led by the ruthless Polk, the latter by the charismatic Henry Clay and a young representative from Illinois named Abraham Lincoln. Greenberg brilliantly recounts this key chapter in the creation of the United States authority and narrative flair.
Would you try another book from Amy S. Greenberg and/or Caroline Shaffer?
nothing narrated by Caroline Shaffer her style is terrible
Who was your favorite character and why?
Really did not have a favorite character. Santana was a poor leader.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
voice, tone, theatrical attempts poor. The narration detracted from the enjoyment so much that I quit before the end and read the book.
Did A Wicked War inspire you to do anything?
read the book rather than listen to that woman
