Lula's brother comes to him because he was once a friend of their brother Charlie. Strike and his temp secretary, Robin, investigate to find out if it truly was a suicide or murder. Robin is an incredibly likable and efficient character and adds a lot to the investigation and helping Cormoran through his hard times.
It was nice to see Rowling write something else I enjoyed. (Haven't read Casual vacancy yet). This is a good hard-boiled tale and quite different from Potter. This was a really good read, but paced slower than I might like. Not a fan of his name - small detail.
