‘The Cuckoo Calling’ had been written under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith, who readers were duped into believing was a retired military personnel and father of two. The novel, listed at 4,709 by Amazon, jumped all the way to number one.

The book was described as a “stellar debut” by one critic while another said that it was a mature, realistic take on an often-done genre. Rowling, who plans to write a series of crime novels, was finally revealed as the author of the novel over the weekend.
