Author JK Rowling will publish another crime novel this summer, the second to be written under her pseudonym Robert Galbraith.
Published on June 19, The Silkworm will again feature Cormoran Strike, the private detective JK Rowling, 48, introduced in 2013’s The Cuckoo’s Calling.
The author’s pseudonym was unmasked last year after the information was leaked by a member of her legal team.
The new novel sees Cormoran Strike on the trail of a novelist’s murderer.
Along with his assistant Robin Ellacott, Cormoran Strike will probe the death of a writer whose latest manuscript would have ruined several lives had it been published.
It has also been announced that JK Rowling will discuss her new career as a crime writer at a literary festival in North Yorkshire.
