Sales for THE CUCKOO’S CALLING were sparse, but when word slipped out that Galbraith with really Rowling, her fans took the crime novel to the top of the charts.  THE SILKWORM and CAREER OF EVIL followed TCC and will also be filmed down the line.

THE CUCKOO’S CALLING will debut, on the BBC and HBO, in 2017.
