Lethal White
Lethal White | Robert Galbraith
Lethal White is the fourth book in the Cormoran Strike series from the international bestselling 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

Dug this out of the depths of my Audible library, where it‘s been lurking since it first came out. I gave up my Audible subscription a while back (and it has to be said, this series on audio is great), and I don‘t think I‘ll want to read book 5, so this‘ll be my farewell to Robin and Cormoran. It‘s good to be back with them for now though!

Cathythoughts Enjoy ! I‘d love to see the TV series. 1mo

Bk7 of January 2022 & #JumpStart2022 & Bk3 of #JoyousJanuary #readathon is done. The 4th in the Cormaran Strike series, it isn‘t my favourite so far but it was still a good read. A mentally unwell young man asks Strike & Robin to investigate his memory of a murder. Lots of twists & turns & the interplay between Robin, her new husband & Strike was also entertaining. #BookspinBingo #SeriesRead2022 #BeatTheBacklist #ChunksterChallenge #ShelfOfShame👇

2021 ended with this 💎! Character development, the excitement of the chase, difficult decisions and punchy dialogue reminds me how much I enjoy this series, despite the reputation of the author. Detective work and drama on a finer level, for the pleasure of this #bookworm. #recentlyread #nospoilers ❤️📚

4th book in the series. Private detective Cormoran Strike and his secretary Robin Ellacott are back together as Robin and Matthew‘s marriage seems to be crumbling. There‘s blackmail happening in Westminster and they are investigating. A couple of unique characters in Billy who is schizophrenic and Della Wynn, a London minister for sports.

EadieB The 22 hour audio was a great listen but could have been shorter. J.K. Rowling is a great storyteller. Now looking forward to book 5. 12mo

I am a saver of books and there are a few authors I want to really take my time to anticipate and savour their work. Galbraith is one of these. I was given this two years ago and to be honest I wasn‘t planning to read for awhile but the release of the book episode as the next instalment in C.B. Strike forced my hand. Finished this on Thursday so started the first episode last night. Loving it

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟Finally, I read the fourth novel about #CormoranStrike ! The plot is incredibly cheerful and dynamic, even though almost half of the book is occupied by the inner experiences of the characters and their relationships with former, present and future partners.In general, this is a great pastime, without boredom and long reflections. It's perfectly readable and causes only positive emotions!

I‘m home! Cervantes to Denmark WA. Cool signs on the road, a hello Perth/goodbye Perth drive-by, and a very happy cat (and human)!!!

Listened to Lethal White by Robert Galbraith (aka JK Rowling.) Actually re-listening because the next in the series has just been published. I love to listen to this series because the narrator, Robert Glenister, is unbelievably good.

bookandbedandtea Looks like a great road trip! I, too, really enjoy the narrator of this series and I'm looking forward to listening to the next one. 2y

Just finished a reread of the series before release of the fifth book. Lethal White is one of the weaker mystery installments with too many seemingly disjointed threads and not enough of an emotional touchstone to stay as invested.
That said, I enjoyed watching Strike and Robin's friendship develop and open up again. I am looking forward to the next!

Another of the Cormoran Strike mystery novels. I enjoyed this one like I did the last. I‘m glad Robin finally got rid of her horrid husband. That‘s one pet peeve that someone so strong and smart sticks around so long with a douche. I am ready for Robin to get with Cormoran already since we all know that‘s where the future is heading!

Some good news. 🎉🎊🎉 Macmillan stopped being a dick and backed out of the 8 weeks delay plan for libraries to get ebooks citing the coronavirus as the reason. Let's see if the other companies will follow suit. I'm glad to know Macmillan will stop being greedy when shit hits the fan. I just wonder how long it will last.

KathyWheeler I‘m just afraid they‘ll reinstate this bs plan after this 2y
Patchshank @KathyWheeler I'm sure they will. According to them libraries cost them too much money in book sales. 2y
KathyWheeler @Patchshank As a librarian, I don‘t believe they are right. 2y
Sweetkokoro It‘s so disgusting how prior to the virus they said “libraries ruin our sales” now here they are saying “libraries will give us our sales” It‘s such an ugly thought process. It‘s proof they aren‘t concerned about people being able to access their products. I hope many get to take advantage of this change while it‘s in place, I feel they will reinstate the bs plan when this is all over with. 2y
Patchshank @KathyWheeler As a library patron I don't believe they are right. Just greedy. @Sweetkokoro I'm sure they will reinstate it. Libraries should take advantage of this while they can. They will probably get a large boost in sale from libraries since everyone is getting laid off and won't be able to afford books. Everything comes down to money. They don't care about anything else. 2y

Good: Some good quotes. Dealt with an abusive relationship well, very poignant to past experiences. It was an intriguing and atmospheric novel.

Bad: I already felt weird reading it after Rowling‘s TERF comment... then she had a character whom she referred to as a “boy-girl.” Even in case of mistaken identity, never okay to use that term. Very bored with the romance plot, and the plot was eh in general.

Overall: Not worth 600+ pages.

A little lengthier than I generally like my mysteries to be, and I found the ending to be a bit confusing, but still a good addition to the series. I‘m in love with the characters so gonna have a hard time waiting for book 5.

tokorowilliamwallace I probably would prefer my mysteries to be on the lengthy side. I'm in the middle a 700-page Elizabeth George volume, and love that Larsson gives us so much room for his incredible sense of context! I've considered these primarily because of their lengths, but I'm still not sure if I want to experiment with the series yet, even though there's volume two currently available at my most frequented resale charity shop. 4mo
WordyForever Like the HP series, they tend to get longer as the series goes on. The first few were manageable. But I haven‘t even started the latest yet 4mo

Too much plot. So much. And not for the mystery, for Robin and Cormoran and their relationships. I mean it‘s almost like JK has decided it‘s a seven book series and that she wants them together and pregnant by the end and has just realised that this is book 4 and Robin has just married Matthew... exhausting.

A great story, well told. Although it didn‘t need to be 650 pages long (it had to have its own bag for the commute...) and there is just a little something that holds me back from completely loving the Cormoran Strike series. I‘m not sure what but I *think* it‘s because I don‘t buy the Strike/Robin will they/won‘t they thing. Still enjoyed this though.

rachelm This wasn‘t my fav of the series either but they are fun, aren‘t they? 2y

I barely had time to read the past few days which was torturous with this book waiting for my attention. I practically raced home today to finish the last 50 pages. I loved this book and the series has really convinced me to give mysteries another try while I wait for more Cormoran and Robin. If anyone had recommendations for something similar I would be interested.
