Alison Cresswell

Alison Cresswell is Tony Landry’s secretary at his law firm, Landry, May, Patterson. She started dating John Bristow shortly after Lula Landry’s death and accompanies John to Cormoran Strike’s office the day he takes him on as a client.

She is described as “thick-set and very dark, with a limp bob” and as having “what might have been a monobrow if she had not plucked it.” She looks naturally cross.

Alison plays a role as a low-key witness leading to the capture of Lula Landry’s killer.
