Report: 'Harry Potter' Author J.K. Rowling Working on Crime Novel

LONDON — "J.K. Rowling has been spotted at cafes in Scotland working on a detective novel, a British newspaper reported Saturday."

The single biggest whodunit in the known galaxy is the identity of the publishing bigshot who selected Rowling as the next superstar, in favor of those who could actually write. Any other sleuthing is small potatoes, but that's just what the world needs.

More detective stories. Told by people who know nothing about detectives or stories. Be interesting to see how she makes the segue from children's books to adult fare.
