Book will be published under “Harry Potter” author's pseudonym, Robert Galbraith

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.

image005“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.

It is the second Strike book. His first adventure, “The Cuckoo's Calling” became a best-seller after it came to light that Rowling was behind the book.  In promotional material for Galbraith's alleged debut, he was described as “a former plainclothes Royal Military Police investigator who had left in 2003 to work in the civilian security industry.”

An attorney for Rowling who leaked the news of “The Cuckoo's Calling's” authorship was  fined 1,000 pounds ($1,650) last month and received a written warning from the Solicitors Regulation Authority.

Little, Brown, will publish  ”The Silkworm” on June 24, 2014.

Fret not Potter fans, Rowling hasn't abandoned the world of wizardry for that of mystery. 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.

    She does not like Americans, only English people in HP books. That is no good to me.

    • Smart doofus

      Gawd you ARE stupid. She is English you right-wing idiot. She lives in England… ever heard of it? You are an example of how the stupidity, racism and anti-intelligence of the Republican party cannot be concealed.

      • Benjamin Roussey

        The racism is coming from you you Jesse Jackson race monger affirmative action zealout.

        • Benjamin Roussey

          You believed the Obama lying machine.
          You believed you could keep your doctor and your insurance plan. You believed
          you would have lower health care costs. You believed the website would be
          working and would work. These idiots cannot even set up a website! Hilarious!
          Just like the Germans did in the 1930s who believed an egotistical liar, you
          believed the Obama who continues to lie and earn a Pinocchio every week.

          • Benjamin Roussey

            Mitt
            Romney was right on about Russia and the Ukraine. Again, the Obama machine was
            wrong and even mocked Romney about it. Hilarious. Liberals just do not
            understand foreign policy. Obama is a punk and a very slow learner. Obama, your
            weakness on Syria has just caused an international crisis in the Ukraine. Good
            job, another black mark on your record where there is very little bright spots.

  • Benjamin Roussey

    Romney created more jobs in his lifetime than Obama ever has
    and ever will. Creating federal jobs, that are useless, and soak up more money
    from the private sector does not count. Any president can create federal jobs.
    How about private sector jobs that count? That is what matters. Romney at Bane
    Capital did more for America than Obama ever has and ever will in the private
    sector job count. It is not Obama’s fault though that he does not understand
    business, he was raised by a socialist mother who was obviously clueless
    herself.

    • Smart doofus

      Oh, drop it loser. You paid Obama haters are inflated with Rush Limbaugh's bowel gases. Go back to working as an attendant in the Koch Brothers $5 million dollar bathroom.

      • Benjamin Roussey

        It is called “personal
        responsibility”. We know liberals hate those two words when they are together
        because they do not want to take responsibility for their actions. It is not
        rich people’s fault you or your kids dropped out of high school. It is not rich
        people’s fault that they decided to study in high school and had the guts to
        start their own business and work at it until they had a winning product and/or
        service. It is not rich people’s fault that you chose to have a child out of wedlock
        and not listen to good advice when it was being handed to you. Most rich people
        were not born rich, they worked hard and did not spend all their spare time
        watching MTV or waiting for something to happen. They made it happen and they
        employ millions of Americans in jobs that matter. Your government job does not
        matter, most likely. And union members kill jobs but that is another story. It
        is about personal responsibility which liberals do not want to acknowledge
        because then they would have to realize their failure and stagnant professional
        is their fault and on one else’s.

    I woke up this morning
    and realized 10,000,000 black people are unemployed, 7,000,000 Mexicans, and
    4,000,000 young people out of college who mainly supported Obama and this is
    largely because of Obama's tax and spend agenda, Sarbanes Oxley, Dodd/Frank (do
    you even know what this is?), EPA, job killing regulations (see jobs migrate
    from California to Texas), high taxes, lack of tort reform which inflates
    medical costs, and so on – I laughed for about 2 minutes. Keep on being suckers
    people, the Democrats take your vote for granted. Hey, but at least gays can
    marry each other and woman can murder their own babies. Hooray, hooray….

    The debt was $10.626 trillion on the day Mr. Obama took office. The latest
    calculation from Treasury shows the debt has now hit $17.4 trillion.

    It's the most rapid increase in the debt under any U.S. president.

    The national debt increased $4.9 trillion during the eight-year presidency of
    George W. Bush. The debt now is rising at a pace to surpass that amount during
    Mr. Obama's four-year term.

    • Smart doofus

      Moron Benjamin, your pathetic comments cannot compete with the billionaire oligarchs already attacking Obama with hundreds of millions of their “hate-dollars”. You don't add up to one little anal toot from the big nasty boys.
      Besides, you're wrong.

  • Wendy

    Ok Benjamin, what does everything your saying have to do with J.K. Rowling?

    Rowling should have allowed other actors in her movies, not just English actors. That is sort of pathetic. Oh well, Harry Potter does not equal Fast and Furious or Transformers.

    Is Barnie Frank really
    going to get away with destroying Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and devastating
    the housing sector? I guess so.
