An unsettling cold case investigation ensnares Cormoran Strike and his partner in a web of dangerous secrets in this #1 New York Times bestseller — "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).

I’ve been waiting for this book. It was worth it. I can wait to see it turned into a mini series. I kept putting it down deliberately and doing other things, just so it would take longer to finish. Now I’m left waiting for the next book, again!

The books in this series just keep getting better and better. This one was the best so far! It was longer and more complex than the past 3, but it was fascinating and I couldn’t put it down! I hope we don’t have to wait too long for the next in the series!!

Another great work by Robert Galbraith! I simply just love the way strike and robin characters are fleshed out even more. Hopefully we won’t have to wait another three years for #5.

Too many twists and turns....difficult to follow at times

That was excruciating. Took me weeks to read. Became a challenge to finish, not a pleasure. And THEN the ending was implausible. What was the point of Billy? I got so tired of the chain smoking and sore leg and then there were all the rabbit holes. May try again, I like Cormoran and Robin, but must be at least half as long!

Too long. Took away from the story.

Slow moving plot, stupid dialogue

I couldn't put this down- except for putting it down to make notes. I keep getting bested by Galbraith, so I really tried to work it out before the end this time. I had a few theories and one was partly correct! I was proud of myself because the plot line was so clever. Really, how does an author suck you in with such beautiful language and detail? Asking because I can never manage it myself. I know it took time to churn out such a masterpiece, but try not to take too long next time, I don't think I could wait 2 years for the next Strike novel.

Page turning, yet complex plot, and the lovely undertones of Strike's and Robin's relationship continue...another JK Rowling, not to be missed.

Robin was attracted to the killer!!!! She shared personal information with him. Wow. I had trouble with the minutiae of the detective work----the suspicions and the lies and so on and so forth. I also had trouble liking this book; I'd recommend "Career of Evil" over this one. But Rowling is an "open headed" writer, so I read what she writes(Note the denouement of the movie currently playing----"Knives Out"-----is the same as this one: The guy who got cut out of the will did the murder) The key thing is that 'Lethal White' is a kind of white horse. Its the title. Its in the theme. Its a motif. Now lets read from my book, the passage from 7/18/2013............ https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/source-reader-re-voltamor/1127785090?ean=2940158985126 ( ?As--not 'as if'; Hallie was a believer--on cue, Hallie's dream, during the night following the very first installment of his book, was filled with J.K. Rowling and ended with a white horse. He couldn't remember anything being said. But he was in his own home, Rowling appeared to have brought a friend, Hallie seemed to be the host and......his Scotch-Irish paternal grandmother was there, briefly. When the horse appeared, Hallie felt apologetic----animals in the house when a billionaire guest comes over---but, as he was ushering the horse out the back door, he thought, "could this be a gift for me?" Rowling certainly owed him a lot. Then the dream was over. Hallie woke up and looked down at the brown horse leading a charioteer on the green Caesar's Palace shirt he was wearing. In the dream, the horse was definitely white.......... ..............................7/18/2013 12:59 am) YES, my book has sold 1 copy. Its 138,000 words and includes all the evidence for how I created Harry Potter. (And yes, Strike did some gambling in this book at the racetrack they went to----like Caesar's Palace). That 'Lethal White' got 73 reviews means that it must have sold 73 copies. My book "Source Reader" has sold 1 copy. Its a colossal unfairness. My book is NON-FICTION and is WAY better. For some reason, the publishing industry doesn't want to publish my book. Thus, its an e-book. I had leukemia from 1987 to 1989. Blood tests got my blood out there. My deep-stomach DNA got out there too, due to vomiting. Lotta blood transfusions as well. Then I got a paper route starting on Feb 1 1990.........on a street called Granger. I went down to the newspaper office for canvassing training and answered, "Well, I like Christopher Potter", when the guy asked, "What's one good thing about the newspaper?" (Potter was the newspaper's film critic). Joanna Rodgers was the girl I was fixing to talk to in that high school. (like Joanne K Rowling, both are "Joann Ro"s. It goes on and on. (My favorite baseball player was "Harold" Baines). Did you know you have massive influence on world events if you write multi-tranched emails? That's mostly the kind of writing I do. Gets quicker results.

Nuanced intrigue gradually sucks in the reader to such a complex series of intertwined cases. Quite extraordinary fortitude and drive keep our heroes plunging onward to solve a very surprising liaison of murderers. My favorite Strike novel to date.

I was thrilled when I saw a new Strike novel was released. I absolutely love this series! I was even reading slower at the end because I didn't want the book to be over. Great story and development of the characters. I can't wait for the next one!!!!

I don’t normally read 600 page books. This took a while. I loved every minute.

Great addition to the series, especially with the further character and relationship developments. Keeps you on your toes but certainly not overly challenging to follow.
