What you need to know before your trail

When a troubled model falls to her death from a snow-covered Mayfair balcony, it is assumed that she has committed suicide. However, her brother has his doubts, and calls in private investigator Cormoran Strike to look into the case.

Strike is a war veteran – wounded both physically and psychologically – and his life is in disarray. The case gives him a financial lifeline, but it comes at a personal cost: the more he delves into the young model’s complex world, the darker things get – and the closer he gets to terrible danger . . .

Travel Guide

London

It’s not often that a television series’ filming locations are almost exactly the same as the book! This novel and TV adaptation comes very close.

The series is set in the heart of London and it’s believed that JK Rowling, the author’s real name, went around the city getting a exact feel for the locations she wanted to use.It makes a lovely visit to the city and ideal as you get to see the filming locations as well as the literary ones.

The detective’s office is found near Tottenham Court Road – Denmark Street –  so if you wander around this area, visiting bars and cafes, you’re bound to see many of the place you recognise as being Strike’s patch.

This London is of two parts – on one side you have the scruffy, underworld of poverty and on the other in the luxurious world where Lula Landry lived and shopped.
