    Entertaining page turner

    It kept me guessing right up to the end. In the finest tradition of detective stories, we have the broken down detective, his efficient assistant and bereaved brother asking for investigation of a murder that the police force has determined was suicide,. However despite being very generic, in this tale everything is tipped just a little off kilter and the characters develop in ways you don't immediately expect.

    Tentative start but ends explosively

    Gaps in description/expansion of character. A lot of plot elements here, many which are unresolved by novel's end though presumably the sequel will tie up those. A good read however with many suspects, the identity of whom is not revealed until the end.

    The Cuckoo's Calling

    Enjoyed this book. Much better than The Casual Vacancy. Plenty of characters and plot twists. A real page-turner.

    The Cuckoo's Calling

    I enjoyed this book so much! 5 stars are not enough for this author, these characters, the plot, the twists and turns and the capture of the ordinary within the thrill of the story. Just brilliant.

    Not bad.

    My expectations were quite high as I couldn't help comparing it to 'Harry Potter' series (yes, I know it's a completely different genre, but still!). I might judge it differently if I didn't know it's J. K. Rowling... Still, it was an interesting story, I really loved Robin's character -- hoping there's more of her in the next book. I will give it this, it keeps you guessing till the very end! :)
