Using her alter ego once more, J.K. Rowling is publishing a second book as Robert Galbraith, publisher Little, Brown has confirmed. The novel will be a sequel to the book, “The Cuckoo’s Calling” which was released last year.
“The Silkworm” sees the return of detective Cormoran Strike, the ex-soldier hero introduced in The Cuckoo’s Calling. In the new book, Strike investigates the disappearance of a novelist who has written a book that features scathing descriptions of real people.
The Cuckoo’s Calling initially attracted little notice when it was published last year, but rocketed up the charts once Rowling was exposed as its author.
The Silkworm will be published June 19 in Britain and June 24 in the USA.
