Description

An unsettling cold case investigation ensnares Cormoran Strike and his partner in a web of dangerous secrets in this number one New York Times best seller - "Rowling's wizardry as a writer is on fulsome display" (USA Today).

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).

Ce que les critiques en disent

"[Narrator] Robert Glenister has peopled Strike's world with a huge cast that is convincing, horrifying, and funny. Here, as Strike and his partner, Robin, sort out the murder of Britain's awful culture minister, Jasper Chiswell (pronounced 'chisel'), the many greedy, snobbish, cruel faces of evil are human, but the plot and performance are pure magic."

Not a fan

Although the narration was excellent, I found the story to be very drawn out and extremely boring. It was difficult to get to the end.

“Superb by every measure”

I love this series and this, the 4th installment, did not disappoint in any way. The captivating performance of the narrator , Robert Glenister, brings the excellent writing to life. I fully hope there will be a 5th !!!

Lethal white

The performance was excellent and easy to understand but I found the story dragged on too long. It was a bit boring in parts and put me to sleep several times but overall the plot was good,

Good book...except for the female lead

I had this book saved in my audible for a while and only now got around to listening to it. This is my first C strike book and I have to say I enjoyed the book for the most part. The narration was great and the general plot was good, however, I like a strong female lead and did not get that in this book. I guess I missed a lot of stuff in the past books that would explain Robin’s character, but from what I read, most of the stuff that happened to her in the past books were also as a result of bad judgement on her part and in this book her character annoyed me. I thought that for who started studying psychology and claimed she always wanted to be a cop, she was very weak. She’s been brutally attacked in the past and is having panic attacks whenever she thinks someone is behind her but yet can’t see the benefit of therapy or SELF DEFENCE training?? I would have understood, not really, but kinda, if this book was actually written by a male, but finding out it was written by JK made me sad that she couldn’t write a stronger female character. Also, I know that women stay in marriages because of kids, or family obligations but to find this female lead had no such reasons and suffers from the same poor judgement in both her business and personal life made me so sad and is a deterrent for reading future books. I would recommend this book for the story. Reviews may speak of the sexual tension, I felt both lead characters cared for each other, but a hug at her wedding, an accidental peck and a few notes about possible jealousy does not translate to sexual tension in my book.

Great story

Another great book from Galbraith. The developing relationship between Robin and Cormoran is intriguing- and us woven through the investigations in a very realistic way. We see both their failings and their successes. The investigation is like a spiders web, ever larger in details. Has to go back and listen again to some chapters because I felt I’d missed something - and yes indeed, I had. Small details are there for a reason. Everything makes sense at conclusion. The narrator knows the characters well, and there is sufficient distinction in voices to concentrate on the story, not the narrator. Can’t wait for the next one !!

🍊🍾🔑🤺🗡🏇🏼💊Only Sorry There’s No Book Five Yet 💵🧯🔦📞♟🎨🐴

And if there were, I’d be starting it right this minute. Yes, the Rosmersholm quotations were weird at first (why Rosmersholm?), but I came to appreciate them by the end as useful prognostic indicators of what each chapter might hold. And yes, there were one or two times when I thought the plot might be spinning out of the author’s control, and/or that there were too many (silly-named) characters. And yes, I was confused by the swans at the end and had to search on the internet to discover their significance. But overall, I loved it, thought it easily the best of the series so far, and was only disappointed that there was no book five I could immediately start listening to. Will be very eager to purchase it whenever it finally arrives. Robin and Strike are both fully realized and engaging characters, now that Robin has finally grown a pair, so to speak, and it will be very exciting to see what new adventures await. Grade: A. Bechdel test: Pass.

Can't Get Enough of Robert Glenister doing Strike

I am a huge fan of this series, but I don't care nearly as much about the mysteries as I do about the relationship between the main characters, Robin & Strike. I LOVE this narrator, Robert Glenister, and love how he does the voice of Strike. I don't want to watch the BBC show and have that impression of Strike sullied! Also, Glenister avoids the campy, mocking singsong that so many male narrators use when they portray women. He does all the voices and distinct accents (the author often calls out the dialect, so you really notice him switching from Cornwall to Yorkshire to London, etc) so well. He deserves an Audie. Okay, to the point: the mystery story is as good or better than the earlier mysteries in this series. I enjoyed the various bad guys and clues, and the political overlay of the London Olympics. I loved the Billy character and the unreliable witness element he brought. But what we all want to know is, WHAT'S HAPPENING WITH ROBIN & STRIKE? No spoilers, but the book gives you enough of the two of them to keep you on the hook. I can't say anything else. I'll get the next book for sure. PS: Don't read these books out of order. Start with the first in the series.

Best 22 hours of the last week

This is my favorite series and I am already dreading the long wait for the next installment. My only consolation is knowing it will be worthwhile. The 22+ hours spent listening to this narrator play out the story have been the highlight of my days, although I'd never let on to my children about that. I've watched the TV series and am, again, dreading the wait for the next season.

Love this series

Reread the previous two books and enjoyed this one immensely. Also love the narrator, Robert Glenister. Great addition to the series. It may seem a little slow to some listeners, but this is the kind of book I like to listen to when I knit. It's not so convoluted that I lose the plot, but it's got enough action going that it keeps me interested.

The Best In the Series

It feels like I have waited forever for this book number four. The naration is absolutely outstanding -- just like the other three books. I am already listening to the book again. The only criticism I have is now I have to endure another excruciating wait for book number five.

Engrossing and compelling

It's the kind of book that involves your whole mind and body. I see the scenes rolling in my mind as I listen and sometimes realize I've been holding my breath. I had to make myself stop listening to attend to mundane activities such as eating, sleeping, work and relationships. I will sheepishly admit that I rarely choose audiobooks of this length and was afraid I might be tempted to fast forward through parts, but Lethal White balances between the engaging main characters' lives and the enthralling set of mysteries they investigate. I relished every minute and, like other reviewers, look forward to the next novel. If you haven't read the first three books in this series go ahead and buy this one. Then take audible up on that lovely offer to buy discounted credits as you'll be wanting to buy those first three asap.

J.K. can really write

This series is so fantastic, I sometimes think I should get the Harry Potter books as well. It's so odd: when I read the summary and reviews, I always think the books won't really interest me, but in 5 minutes or less I'm sucked right in. These are real keepers.

Narrator is Wonderful - too bad about the book

The superlative acting skills and amazing vocal range of narrator Robert Glenister make this novel seem way more interesting than it actually is. After a few chapters of slug-like plot development, I realized that it was Glenister's voice and not the author's words that were holding my attention. The book's protagonists – a male-female detective duo -- spend half the book earnestly pursuing a bunch of bad guys while struggling to hide their mutual attraction. (Positively Victorian. Yawn and Yawn) It's no exploration of emotional paralysis like "Remains of the Day." It's just a poorly executed set-up that's been executed brilliantly many times before. Oh for the teasing banter of the crime-solving Thin Man couple or the tough talking sexual tension between Bogey and Bacall. That Robert Glenister, he could read the IRS tax laws aloud and fog up my glasses.

Ready for the next one now!

Worth waiting for—but I hope we don’t have to wait so long for book 5! Robert Glenister is amazing and brings Strike and Robin to life as perfectly as if they were real people. I missed them both immensely while waiting for this book. While Matthew continues to be a complete jerk, the tension in the perfectly imperfect relationship between Robin and Strike, added weight to the case they’re working on. Every word is woven perfectly in JKR style. She is so gifted in this genre I wish the series would not end. Fantastic addition to the set!
