The secret was out quite a while back that J K Rowling was responsible, under a pen name, for this new piece of criminal fiction. Like many others, I was eager to see what Ms Rowling would do with a different genre and I certainly was not disappointed.

I don't wish to give too much away, suffice to say, this was a rather enjoyable read and I imagine this would be the perfect airport purchase.
