Just as Cormoran Strike is on the brink of giving up his private detective practice, in comes John Bristow through the door with an amazing story about his uber popular supermodel sister, Lula Landry. She had been found on the street – having jumped her penthouse. The thing is, Bristow doesn’t think she jumped, but rather she was thrown off it.

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.

You may think you know detectives, but you’ve never met one quite like Strike. You may think you know about the wealthy and famous, but you’ve never seen them under an investigation like this.
