'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 more tricky than that . . .
The most epic Robert Galbraith novel yet, LETHAL WHITE is both a gripping mystery and a page-turning next instalment in the ongoing story of Cormoran Strike and Robin Ellacott.
Lengthy white story
A wonderfully enjoyable romp: a rather unbelievable heroine, attractive hero (maimed) of course ,high end moments in London’s West End and almost believable horse lore. A suitably evil damaged good looking baddy helped it all along. A touch too long.
A page turner from beginning to end
Outstanding story once again. Full of twists and turns. The Strike series is excellent.
Good plot but slightly too descriptive
I’ve followed JKR in all her writings, starting as a obsessed fan of Harry Potter, and enjoyed all her books.
Although I always liked this one, probably is my least favourite. Her descriptive language was a bit much sometimes, boring me a little and making me think ‘get on with it!’.
But otherwise, fantastic twist in the plot and loved how the complicated relationship between Robin and Strike manifested even more.
