Now a major BBC drama: The Strike series 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. A gripping, elegant mystery steeped in the atmosphere of London from the hushed streets of Mayfair to the backstreet pubs of the East End to the bustle of Soho The Cuckoo's Calling is a remarkable book. Introducing Cormoran Strike, this is the acclaimed first crime novel by J.K. Rowling, writing under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith.

It begins with a small white lie. The kind of lie you might tell to keep your child out of trouble - especially when he begs you to confirm that he came home early last night and has been up in his room ever since. And so you back him up. You give him an alibi. Instead of telling the truth: that he actually crept in at 3 a.m., clothes streaked with mud and bruises on his face. Fear in his eyes and a plea in his voice you've not heard for a long time. Please, Dad. But sometimes a small white lie can be the most dangerous thing in the world. Because five teenagers went into the woods last night. And only four came out . . .

Although The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime has won several children's and teenagers' book's awards (as well as the Whitbread Book of the Year), this remarkable novel shouldn't be dismissed as purely children's fare. In fact, it's arguable that adults, who are generally more staid and set in their ways will find this fascinating book even more rewarding than younger readers.
The novel initially hints at being a strangely unique whodunnit (with the victim a large poodle; the weapon a pitchfork). However, as so often with superb writing, the 'whodunnit' aspect of the novel becomes secondary. This is entirely due Haddon's unique narrator - fifteen-year-old Christopher. Christopher 'sees everything' - and equipped with a photographic memory and unsurpassed clarity of thought, takes it upon himself to solve the murder and so bring back the order into his life which is so important to him.
What is doubly remarkable about this narrative is that Christopher has Asperger Syndrome (a condition often related to mild autism). The reader is effortlessly drawn into Christopher's mind, sees through his eyes, and receives an affecting insight into someone living with the syndrome. Much of the book's humour stems not from laughing 'at' Christopher - on the contrary, Christopher serves as the perfect mirror by which so-called 'normal' people can see themselves reflected. But be warned - it's often a disconcerting sight. You could end up questioning the basic tenets of human interaction - along with the everyday lies and deceits that make up everyday 'normal' behaviour.
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime is a thoroughly 'unputdownable', unique novel - and don't miss the reason behind the unusually numbered chapters!
If you want to learn more about AS, you can't do better than Freaks, Geeks and Asperger Syndrome by Luke Jackson. Like Mark Haddon's Christopher, Luke is a teenager living with AS. Written in a totally open, honest and accessible style, this book is exceptional, not only because it's written by a thirteen-year-old with AS, but because the subject of AS is explored from the inside. But it's not only a must-read for those who live with AS or who wish to learn more about the syndrome, it's an inspiring, helpful and humourous handbook for everyone from teenagers to anyone who's ever felt a little bit 'different'.
Says Luke Jackson:
'Non-AS people say things they don't mean, miss out things they do mean, do all sorts of strange things with their faces which apparently change the meaning of their words - and they say AS people are odd!' (p.108)

On the first snowy night of winter, Detective Inspector Vera Stanhope sets off for her home in the hills. Though the road is familiar, she misses a turning and soon becomes lost and disorientated. A car has skidded off the narrow road in front of her, its door left open, and she stops to help. There is no driver to be seen, so Vera assumes that the owner has gone to find help. But a cry calls her back: a toddler is strapped in the back seat.

Vera takes the child and, driving on, she arrives at a place she knows well. Brockburn is a large, grand house in the wilds of Northumberland, now a little shabby and run down. It's also where her father, Hector, grew up. Inside, there's a party in full swing: music, Christmas lights, and laughter. Outside, unbeknownst to the revelers, a woman lies dead in the snow.

As the blizzard traps the group deep in the freezing Northumberland countryside, Brockburn begins to give up its secrets, and as Vera digs deeper into her investigation, she also begins to uncover her family's complicated past.
