5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read!, July 7, 2013
By 
This review is from: The Cuckoo's Calling [LegacyTitleID: 21153809]
This book is so well written that I suspect that some years down the road we will hear the author's name is a pseudonym of some famous writer. Lots of description made one feel like another occupant in the scene. You could feel the weather, the tension, the pain, the atmosphere in the gatherings. The Audible version had great accents. It is a wonderful mystery with a surprise ending, and I look forward to more by the same author.

You're right. It was just revealed that J.K. Rowling is behind this book.

"I had hoped to keep this secret a little longer," JKR said, "because being Robert Galbraith has been such a liberating experience. It has been wonderful to publish without hype or expectation and pure pleasure to get feedback under a different name."

Looks like you were right!

I have nothing useful to add but I'm really amused you mentioned this was probably a pseudonym just a few days before it was revealed this was indeed written by one of the best selling authors of the last decade :P

I realize other people have made similar comments, but I'm just amazed by how prescient this comment turned out to be. A mere six days before the unmasking. Nice.
