Charlotte Campbell is a socialite and Cormoran Strike's ex-fiancée.


Charlotte Campbell was a socialite who was engaged to Cormoran Strike. Their relationship was tempestuous. Earlier in the day that Cormoran was contracted by John Bristow to investigate the death of Lula Landry, he and Charlotte broke up. They argued in his office; Cormoran found her psychotic tendencies and constant lying to be too much for him. Charlotte hit him with an ashtray, splitting his lip.

Claiming that Cormoran needed her and that he would come running back to her, Charlotte stormed out the office and past Robin Ellacott, who was arriving to start work as Cormoran's new temp secretary. Several days later, Charlotte called Cormoran's office and left a message on his answering machine telling him that she cannot cope and that she needs him.
