The first hard-boiled murder mystery installment in the Cormoran Strike series, written by Robert Galbraith the pseudonym for J. It was decent. I didn't feel like it was super surprising or anything and the characters were thin, but it was a fast read. Cormoran Strike has the extraordinary credentials for detective as a former member of the Special Investigation Branch SIB of the Royal Military Police but what is wonderful is how human Galbraith makes him as a vet from the war in Afghanistan, in which he lost his leg to an IED. His training gifts him with the rigor of a good investigative skills and the social connections for access to information; As a disabled protagonist, his injury is not a plot device but is ever present and you can feel his discomfort and pain. I noticed a lot of readers liked it but a few did feel similar to me. I've never read the Harry Potter series or watched the movies so have no comparison.
