Mystery Book Discussion: “The Cuckoo’s Calling” by Robert Galbraith
6:30 pm

A Mystery Book Discussion on “The Cuckoo’s Calling” by Robert Galbraith will be held at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 23 at the Natrona County Public Library.  Summary: After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Strike is down to one client, and creditors are calling. He has also just broken up with his longtime girlfriend and is living in his office. Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: his sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, known to her friends as the Cuckoo, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. 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. To participate, pick up a copy of the book at the 2nd floor Reference desk (while supplies last), then join the group for discussion.  NCPL Book Discussion groups meet monthly and new members are always welcome.  Please call 577-READ (7323) for more information.
