JK Rowling is reviving private detective Cormoran Strike and his plucky young assistant, Robin Ellacott, for another mystery adventure, "The Silkworm."As with her previous Strike novel, the follow-up will be published under the "Harry Potter" writer's pseudonym, Robert Galbraith. It centers on a novelist who is brutally murdered after writing a manuscript featuring poison pen depictions of almost everyone he knows.
"If the novel were to be published, it would ruin lives--meaning that there are a lot of people who might want him silenced," a description of the book reads.
An attorney for Rowling who leaked the news of "The Cuckoo's Calling's" authorship was fined $1,650 last month and received a written warning from the Solicitors Regulation Authority.Little, Brown will publish "The Silkworm" on June 24.
Fret not "Potter" fans, Rowling hasn't abandoned the world of wizardry. Warner Bros., which produced the hit films based on the "Potter" novels, is planning a film series inspired by the boy wizard's Hogwarts textbook "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them." Rowling will write the screenplay.
