The real and fictional story of "The Cuckoo's Calling"

The Cuckoo's Calling released into the market as being penned by Robert Galbraith posed as a army veteran. The latest confession is that Robert Galbraith is just a pseudonym for one of the all time hits of Harry Potter creator J.K Rowling.
The real story behind the expose
Richard Brooks, Sunday Times arts editor is the one behind tracking down and finally uncovering the pseudonym.
Look at these real time events
One of the colleague of Brooks posts on twitter that The Cuckoo’s calling might not be a creation of first time author.
Reply comes from an anonymous author that J.K Rowling is the author of that book and followed by a confirmation of the same.
Later the Twitter account is gone into the air, nowhere to be seen.
Brook’s investigation begins and finds out about the similarities between "The Casual Vacancy" and "The Cuckoo's Calling" like sharing the same agent, publisher and editor in Britain that is David Shelley.
Later reading the book and finding striking similarities with the books of Rowling, sends it to computer linguistic experts to confirm about the single author.
Finally shoots off a mail to the publisher questioning whether both authors are same. The publishers confide the same.

The fictional story

The story of "The Cuckoo's Calling" is also as fascinating as the real story that unfolded in getting Rowling out of the pseudonym. The book generates the curiosity, the story telling grips us as the fictional story unfolds to give this crime fiction an interesting read as of Sherlock Homes series.
