The Cuckoo's Calling

The Cuckoo's Calling - Robert Galbraith “How easy it was to capitalize on a person’s own bent for self-destruction; how simple to nudge them into non-being, then to stand back and shrug and agree that it had been the inevitable result of a chaotic, catastrophic life.” Social commentary, slow dark humour, and perfect, expansive characterisation. Didn't give this book my full attention because I stopped reading halfway through to go travelling - kind of wish I'd saved it now. Nevertheless, will eagerly watch for sequels!
