It has been confirmed that the seventh novel in the Cormoran Strike series, The Running Grave, written by Robert Galbraith (the pseudonym of author J.K. Rowling), is scheduled for publication on September 26th. This release forms part of the tenth-anniversary celebrations of the popular detective series.

The Strike series has gained international acclaim for its intricate storytelling and the compelling narrative of its protagonists, Cormoran Strike and Robin Ellacott. The forthcoming novel, “The Running Grave”, is eagerly anticipated as it will continue to build on this rich tapestry of intrigue and character development.

This year marks a significant milestone in the series’ journey, celebrating a decade since the publication of its inaugural novel, The Cuckoo’s Calling. Commemorating this event, a series of activities have been planned throughout the year, including a unique campaign that encourages readers to engage with the characters’ memorable moments and experiences.

Moreover, a special anniversary edition of The Cuckoo’s Calling will be released, featuring exclusive artwork, making it a must-have for dedicated fans of the series. Proceeds from the sales of this special edition will be generously directed towards ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, reflecting Rowling’s ongoing commitment to philanthropic efforts.

David Shelley, Group Chief Executive at Hachette UK, expressed his high regard for the series, acknowledging the impact the Strike series has had on its vast readership. With over 11 million copies sold in English alone, the series has undeniably captured the imaginations of readers around the globe.
