The Cuckoo's Calling

By J. K. Rowling, published under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith

Private Investigator Cormoran Strike is living out of his shabby London office after a feud with his wealthy girlfriend. Penniless, a new, hard-working temp named Robin appears on his doorstep. Strike's luck continues to improve  when a childhood acquaintance hires him to investigate his supermodel sister's apparent suicide. With money in his pocket, Strike finds himself unraveling the twisted life of Lula Landry and her drug-addicted social circle, dysfunctional family, and troubled birth mother. 

An unlikely pair, Strike and Robin turn out to be a capable team.This mystery is well-written and unpredictable.
