Debut date: FRIDAY, JUNE 1 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT)

London, the dead of winter: Supermodel Lula Landry (Elarica Johnson) plummets to her death from the balcony of her Mayfair apartment. After an inquest concludes that she committed suicide due to the pressures of fame, her brother, John Bristow (Leo Bill), seeks Strike's (Tom Burke) help in finding justice for his adopted sister. Despite Strike's attempts to get DI Eric Wardle (Killian Scott) to reopen the case as a possible homicide, he is met with a brusque brush-off and left to his own means to prove otherwise. With Robin's (Holliday Grainger) help, Strike conducts interviews with neighbors, friends and family of the victim, hoping to get to the truth.

"The Cuckoo's Calling" also stars Martin Shaw, Tara Fitzgerald, Si�n Phillips, Kerr Logan, Natasha O'Keeffe, Amber Anderson, Kevin Fuller, Ben Crompton and Sarah Sweeney; directed by Michael Keillor; written by Ben Richards; executive produced by Ruth Kenley-Letts, Neil Blair and J.K. Rowling.
