Rowling’s Fan’s Might Have Figured Out The Title For Her Next Book

Jo Rowling loves a little mystery. The Harry Potter author, whose bestselling Cormoran Strike detective series is due for a fourth installment, decided to indulge some curious fans on Twitter this Tuesday when they asked about the book’s name.

After an hour of online interaction, we don’t have a conclusive answer — but the title might be staring us in the face.

It all started with a politely curious tweet from one Alexa Marie:

She didn’t ask for the whole title, for surely none can be so bold. Perhaps that’s why Rowling gave it — but missing the bulk of the letters.

In 2006, Rowling’s old website revealed a piece of paper with a game of hangman that fans used to figure out the title Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

One of the most popular suggestions for word #1 was “lethal,” given the murderous nature of the mysteries Strike usually has to solve.

As with any game, the internet couldn’t help having a little fun with it:

Apparently the real title — or something close to it — exists in a sea of Twitter responses.

At any rate, she’s writing. And with such quality detective work from fans, a title announcement can’t be far…

So, who’s got theories? My money is on Nachos Chips or Father Ghost. Also a big fan of this Harry Potter spinoff. The first three Strike novels — The Cuckoo’s Calling, The Silkworm and A Career of Evil are in bookstores and in development for television at the BBC.
