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.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
With its brilliant maze of fallible memories, political secrets and class dynamics, the fourth Cormoran Strike mystery rewards newcomers and seasoned Robert Galbraith fans. Galbraith—the pen name of J. K. Rowling writing hard-boiled grown-up fare—is as ambitious as ever, unfolding an elaborate plot around a mysterious man and a decades-old crime. Like the previous books in the series, the relationship between Strike and his investigative partner Robin Ellacott powers the story; that simmering, almost-palpable tension between characters defines all of Rowling’s best writing…and it kept us glued to the page.

Gripped from start to finish
I love this series of books. I was waiting for this one to be released and I wasn’t disappointed. Great story line with lots of twists and turns. The author keeps you guessing who and why right up til near the end. Please can there be more of these books. Thanks.
Loved this book. Could barely put it down. Can’t wait for the next one.
Error message on iPhone XR
I downloaded this book a week ago and started reading and enjoying it, but about 2 days ago it stopped loading when I wanted to read it and showed me an error message saying that the ebook format was not supported. This doesn’t make sense as it was working the days before on the same phone. I request a refund!
