J.K. Rowling revealed as writer of crime novel


An ex-military man tries his hand at writing, publishes a debut detective novel and wins critical acclaim. But here's the twist in the tale: The true identity of the author is none other than "Harry Potter" creator J.K. Rowling.

Book is currently #1 on Amazon -- The Cuckoo's Calling


According to Worldcat almost no libraries have this book in print. The book is available as an ebook at many libraries because of Overdrive. Curious to see in two months how many libraries have this book in print.

I hope it is better than Casual Vacancy. I barely got 150 pages into that one and just gave up on it.

But then that is what it is like for the majority of first time authors isn't it.
