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!!

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!

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.

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.

PI Cormoran Strike and Robin Ellacott share a moment right after her vows to Matthew, coloring their detective partnership. A disturbed young man caroms into Strike’s office to exclaim about a child murder committed decades ago. Being hired by a politician to spy on a colleague distracts them, but the possibility weighs on Cormoran’s mind, as Robin goes undercover in Parliament. The non-case of the wild story becomes entangled within the political investigation and a dubious suicide. Meanwhile, Robin’s husband shows his true colors, but her desire to be independent only prolongs the sexual tension between partners. Galbraith keeps a fast, at times frenetic, pace throughout the story, with the main characters exasperatingly and credibly human in their complexity. It’s fun to see inside the heads of the good guys when they have fleeting thoughts that are unrealistic / unreasonable, such as when Robin finds herself drawn in by the charm of their client’s tall, dark, and handsome “bad boy” son, a person of interest. Fourth in the Cormoran Strike series, it’s easily a standalone for the case story, but adds layers of nuance to the partnership. The inevitable transition in the nature of the relationship will change the dynamics and sadly may be the beginning of the end, unless Galbraith finds a way to pull it off. Let's hope she...whoops, "he" can do so! I received a copy of this latest release in the series from St. Martin’s Press for an honest review.

Have to read it more than once to catch all the clues. J.K.'s use of language is magic.

Lethal White is just so-so. It is way long for such a simple story, and bogs down often in attempts to throw you off the trail. I think a little more time in the re writing department would help to tighten up the story line and provide some real mystery and detective work, instead of all the chasing around. But is good to have that cranky Mathew finally gone, but enough of the sore stump already

This moved quite quickly and was really broad in its depth. The characters all felt fully fleshed out & real. The story itself was really compelling. I honestly had no idea “who done it” until it was fully explained. I put together a whole plot based on red herrings. Amazing accomplishment.

Loved this book. Each one gets better and better. I must admit I absolutely love Robin and Strike’s relationship and was eager to see what happened with Robin and Matthew. Ahh I won’t spoil it but it’s very satisfying.

Lethal White was one of my most anticipated novels of 2018 and it did not disappoint! After catching a serial killer both Cormoran and Robin are recovering both physically and emotionally, their new partnership strained and a little uncomfortable. When Cormoran receives a visit from a disturbed man insisting he saw a girl being strangled when he was young he’s intrigued. He casually makes a few inquiries and through this mystery he and Robin start to repair their friendship. Why is Cormoran Strike, the ex-military amputee who drinks a bit too much such a great hero? Through his current and past relationships we see how emotionally stunted he can be hiding from his own thoughts at times by having another pint. Robin’s relationship with her fiancee/husband Matthew offers the reader a comparison and allows us to see Comoran’s strengths. As Robin navigates her tumultuous new marriage I wallowed in what should have been’s between she and Strike. It was only the intricately wrought mystery that diverted my attention and allowed me to put those bitter feelings on simmer. What is it about these two characters that make me want them to be together so much? There were many twists and turns to this mystery. What started with the young disturbed man in Strike’s office turned into political subterfuge. Without giving anything away I will say that I was surprised at the who dunnit and went back and forth through that journey of discovery trying to figure out how and when Strike figured out what was going on because I sure as hell didn’t figure it out! If you love British crime mysteries you need to read this series. It gets better with each book and the tension between Cormoran and Robin keep you coming back for more. Will they ever get their relationship figured out? Who knows? But I sure do enjoy watching them tiptoe around their feelings for each other. Oh, and the mysteries are great too! For those of you who don’t know this, Robert Galbraith is a pseudonym for J. K. Rowling. It’s amazing that the same person who wrote the Harry Potter books wrote these novels. She’s one talented lady!

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!

I cannot get enough of Cormoran Strike and Robin Ellacott. The tension on all sides, their relationship with each other, the antagonists, and the police force, all stay in a balance that keeps the books fresh and interesting. Plus I had to check out the tv series and that brought a whole new level of nuance to the books. Simply excellent. MORE, PLEASE!

Very interesting twist and turns! Didn't want to stop reading but didn't want to finish it either....wanted it to keep going! Hope we don't have to wait as many years for the next one as we did for this one. Great storytelling from a gifted writer.

A fan of the Cormoran Strike series since the first book, I loved the character development and the efforts to make Robin and Cormoran into real, trauma-survivors who live each day as best they can. The book runs up multiple threads of mystery, always aiming to make social statements about "the other half"while also dealing with the topic of mental illness that is unspoken but tangible in ordinary lives.

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