LONDON (AFP) - Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling will publish her second crime novel in June, it was revealed on Monday, under the pen name of Robert Galbraith.

The Silkworm, to be published on June 19, will be a follow-up to The Cuckoo's Calling, which Rowling wrote using the Galbraith pseudonym.

"Robert Galbraith's second Cormoran Strike Novel THE SILKWORM to be published 19/06/14," the author's alter ego said in only a third-ever tweet, with a link to Galbraith's website.

The new novel follows private detective Cormoran Strike in another adventure with his assistant Robin Ellacott.
