An unsettling cold case investigation ensnares Cormoran Strike and his partner in a web of dangerous secrets in this #1 New York Times bestseller, the inspiration for HBO Max's acclaimed series C.B. Strike
 When a troubled young man named Billy asks Cormoran Strike to help him investigate a crime he witnessed as a child, the private eye is left deeply troubled. While Billy is obviously mentally distressed and cannot remember many concrete details, there is something sincere about him and his story. But before Strike can question him further, Billy bolts from his office in a panic.
 Trying to get to the bottom of Billy's story, Strike and Robin Ellacott -- once his assistant, now a partner in the agency -- set off on a twisting trail that leads them through the backstreets of London, into a secretive inner sanctum within Parliament, and to a beautiful but sinister manor house deep in the countryside. And during this labyrinthine investigation, Strike's own life is far from straightforward. His newfound fame as a private eye means he can no longer operate behind the scenes as he once did. Plus, his relationship with his former assistant is more fraught than it ever has been; Robin is now invaluable to Strike in the business, but their personal relationship is much, much trickier than that. The most epic Robert Galbraith novel yet, Lethal White is "addictive, murderous fun" for British mystery lovers and crime fiction fans alike (Vox).

    I think many people didn’t appreciate how good a writer JK Rowling was in the Harry Potter novels because of the child friendly subject material. Personally I think she has a gift for bringing characters to life. Even though this novel follows the well worn path of a detective procedural, the thing that sets it apart is the writing for each character, location and event. Highly recommended, assuming you like detective novels - of course!

    Love the tension between the two main characters. Cormoran hugging Robin before leaving her wedding (not theirs) could possibly…or most definitely IS the sexiest paragraph I’ve ever read in a novel.
  • Bloody Brilliant!

    Galbraith has done it again! These novels take you through a portal. You can’t put it down! The writing is done so well you feel what Strike and Robin are feeling. Can’t wait to keep reading and watch Strike and Robin make the best agency in London!

    The writing is extraordinary. In fact so good that I was envious that on my best day I could not write one page as good as aunt in the book.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed all of the books in this series. Amazingly entertaining. Her adult writing is as interesting and riveting as her previous series. And grounded in reality. So fun.

    In my opinion the story was way to complicated and the book was also to long. I have also read Career of Evil which I enjoyed far more. John Galbraith
