Why? One doesn't work to be come a household name just to struggle in anonymity again.
If I were in her place, I might have done the same thing. "Let's see what people think of my writing when they don't know who wrote it. Getting decent reviews? Great. I feel better. Now, quick, let's not be stupid and throw away millions more dollars."
I would not have noticed this book were her name not attached, and while the Harry Potter books were not my cup of tea, I was impressed by the storytelling and richness of them, so now that I know this is hers, I'm actually interested in seeing what she does with a mystery story.
