Robert Galbraith (J.K. Rowling) Unveils Anticipated Sequel To The Cuckoo's Calling (Cormoran Strike Series)

The sequel to The Cuckoo's Calling has finally been announced and it's entitled The Silkworm. This Cormoran Strike adventure will be the second book by Robert Galbraith, the pseudonymous identity of British author J.K. Rowling.

Further details revealed that the book will be released on June 19th this year. Hachette Book Group, the US publisher of the series, has also released a full description of the upcoming novel, which will surely be swarmed by fans, after the author's true identity had been revealed.

As usual, a man's silhouette, which is most probably Strike, is featured in the US cover of The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith -- reminiscent of the British cover of the first book.

Now that we are into it, I just hope The Cuckoo's Calling will be rebranded as such.... because my OC ness is lamenting with the covers' big differences. Here's hoping and wishful thinking...

I can't find anywhere the original image of the actual cover, but here it is...

The Cuckoo's Calling Original Cover


Private investigator Cormoran Strike returns in a new mystery from Robert Galbraith, author of the #1 international bestseller The Cuckoo’s Calling.

When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, Mrs. Quine just thinks her husband has gone off by himself for a few days–as he has done before–and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home.

But as Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine’s disappearance than his wife realizes. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows. If the novel were to be published, it would ruin lives–meaning that there are a lot of people who might want him silenced. When Quine is found brutally murdered under bizarre circumstances, it becomes a race against time to understand the motivation of a ruthless killer, a killer unlike any Strike has encountered before...

A compulsively readable crime novel with twists at every turn, The Silkworm is the second in the highly acclaimed series featuring Cormoran Strike and his determined young assistant, Robin Ellacott.

The Silkworm, an electrifying sequel to The Cuckoo's Calling, by Robert Galbraith will be released on June 19, 2014.
