Sugestão de fim-de-semana * Weekend suggestion

Inscrever-se numa corrida urbana.
Inscribe on an urban marathon.

Escrever o conto que não sai da cabeça.
Write down the tail that you can’t stop thinking of.

E ler um livro.
And read a book.

The cuckoo’s calling (a.k.a. Quando o cuco chama, 2013), Robert Galbraith

Quando uma jovem modelo, cheia de problemas na sua vida pessoal, cai de uma varanda coberta de neve em Mayfair, presume-se que tenha cometido suicídio. No entanto, o seu irmão tem dúvidas quanto a este trágico desfecho, e contrata os serviços do detetive particular Cormoran Strike para investigar o caso. Strike é um veterano de guerra – com sequelas físicas e psicológicas – e a sua vida está num caos. Este caso serve-lhe de tábua de salvação financeira, mas tem um custo pessoal…
Um policial envolvente e elegante, mergulhado na atmosfera de Londres. Quando o Cuco Chama é um livro notável, um romance policial clássico na tradição de P. D. James e de Ruth Rendell, que marca o início de uma série verdadeiramente singular escrita por Robert Galbraith, o pseudónimo de J.K. Rowling, autora da série Harry Potter e do romance Morte Súbita.

The Cuckoo’s Calling is a 2013 crime fiction novel by J. K. Rowling, published under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith.
A brilliant mystery in a classic vein: Detective Cormoran Strike investigates a supermodel’s suicide.
After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Strike is down to one client, and creditors are calling. He has also just broken up with his longtime girlfriend and is living in his office.
Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: His sister, thelegendary supermodel Lula Landry, known to her friends as the Cuckoo, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man.
You may think you know detectives, but you’ve never met one quite like Strike. You may think you know about the wealthy and famous, but you’ve never seen them under an investigation like this.
