After the surprise success of The Cuckoo’s Calling, J.K. Rowling will publish as a second novel under her crime-fiction pseudonym, Robert Gailbraith. Cuckoo protagonist Cormoran Strike (these names!) will return in The Silkworm, about a novelist who is murdered after writing a very unkind manuscript. Everyone is a suspect, etc. It’s due in June, so your beach reading is covered.
