Rowling's first detective novel, and the first in the Cormoran Strike series. She submitted and published the manuscript anonymously, with the back jacket blurb claiming Galbraith was a former Royal Military Police operative publishing under pseudonym, but her cover was blown in July of the publication year when the Sunday Times received a tip via Twitter.
