Publisher's Summary

Lethal White is the fourth book in the Cormoran Strike series from the international best-selling author Robert Galbraith.

"I seen a kid killed... He strangled it, up by the horse." 

When Billy, a troubled young man, comes to private eye Cormoran Strike's office to ask for his help investigating a crime he thinks he witnessed as a child, Strike is left deeply unsettled. 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 both a gripping mystery and an addictive next instalment in the ongoing story of Cormoran Strike and Robin Ellacott.

What the critics say

"[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."

“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,

Strike and Robin make it worthwhile

The best overall mystery in this series is still Career of Evil, in my opinion, but Rowling does such an excellent job developing the relationship between Strike and Robin further that this one is definitely worth a read/listen. The slow burn between them and their connection to each other on multiple levels is expertly portrayed. It makes me wish she would write chick-lit, I would read the crap out of it! The mystery/crime that they are working to solve in Lethal White is a bit ho-hum but Career of Evil is a hard act to follow, as well. Excellent narration by Robert Glenister as usual - really looking forward to the next installment in the series!

An excellent read

A thoroughly enjoyable novel with lots of twists and turns. Character development, although a continuation from previous novels in the series, was well done. The novel stands alone. I recommend this audible book for any crime drama enthusiasts.
