My review:
Harry Potter’s creator takes a pseudonym, learns the “F” word along with other colorful words and uses them. A lot. And BTW, this is a pretty good detective novel. Give it a try if you can get past JK Rowling’s use of expletives. Many, many expletives.

Amazon Product Description:

A brilliant debut mystery in a classic vein: Detective Cormoran Strike investigates a supermodel’s suicide.

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.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I thoroughly enjoyed reading “Freewill.” The plot was original and the characters were easy to relate to. The paranormal aspect of the book was full of refreshing twists unlike recent books in this genre. It was good to read something that hasn’t been rehashed over and over again like other authors do these days. No vampires or zombies here and that is great! Elyse does a great job of giving her characters life. The character James was creepy and in some ways he reminds me of someone I used to know; in fact, the similarities were uncanny and frightening! I am definitely looking forward to the next installment in this series! Keep up the great work, Elyse!
