Seventh Strike novel to publish this September, in the tenth anniversary year of the bestselling series by Robert Galbraith
Tuesday 26th September sees the release of the next in the bestselling series of crime novels by Robert Galbraith. THE RUNNING GRAVE is the brand-new instalment in the highly acclaimed, internationally bestselling series featuring Cormoran Strike and Robin Ellacott, published in hardback, Ebook and audio editions.
THE RUNNING GRAVE will be the seventh title in a planned series of ten, the first six of which have all been Sunday Times and international bestsellers. The Strike series has been praised as ‘the work of a master storyteller’ [Daily Telegraph], ‘unputdownable’ [Daily Express] and ‘a blistering piece of crime writing’ [Sunday Times]; with Strike and Robin dubbed ‘one of crime’s most engaging duos’ [Guardian].
2023 also marks the tenth anniversary of The Cuckoo’s Calling, the first novel in the series. A year-long run of activity is planned to celebrate this milestone, including a creative consumer campaign that will revisit key elements of Strike and give readers the opportunity to share their favourite moments.
Fans will also have the opportunity to purchase a special anniversary edition of The Cuckoo’s Calling, produced with exclusive artwork, of which further details will be released later this year. As with all previous editions of The Cuckoo’s Calling, royalty proceeds of the new edition will go to ABF The Soldiers’ Charity.
‘It’s been brilliant to see the enormous success of the Robert Galbraith books over the past ten years and an honour to publish them. With over 11 million copies sold in the English language to date, the story of Strike and Robin has captured readers’ imaginations and, like so many others, I can’t wait to see what happens to them over the course of the final four books in the series.’ David Shelley, Group Chief Executive, Hachette UK
‘There are few pleasures richer than knowing a new Robert Galbraith thriller is on the way! Seven novels into the Cormoran Strike series, J.K. Rowling keeps expanding her already peerless skills in crafting drama, emotion, urgency, and capturing the infinite complexities of the human spirit—in dark and in light.’ Michael Pietsch, Chief Executive Officer, Hachette Book Group.
