LETHAL WHITE was a fantastic mystery with a case that was as captivating as it was thrilling. But boy this book was LONG!!!! 656 pages or 22 hours – that’s one HUGE book!!

What stood out to me the most was how much effort the author took with his two main characters. The book is not just about the case that Comoran took on. Although this book is a mystery, a good part of this book was dedicated to the background and the present life of both, Comoran and Robin.

I adore those two!

Given that both characters are in a relationship in this book, the author took his time to delve into their backstories and very personal feelings throughout this story. I was enthralled by this very in depth look into both Comoran and Robin’s inner thoughts.

And wow, did Robin impress me!! She really came into herself in this book. When it came head to head, she was able to hold herself with self-assurance, smarts, and expert detective skills. BRAVO!!

And I love how easy it was for Comoran to acknowledge this and give her compliments and assurance without feeling like he was being diminished himself – not like Matt that twit.

I love the feel of an old school mystery novel. And Lethal White featured the perfect mix of following clues, unearthing answers and smart detective work. The story and its case kept me on my toes, with a mystery that was intriguing as well as complex.

Unfortunately at times it dragged a little, and Charlotte was still as annoying as ever, and Matt is a guy that I wouldn’t wish on any woman. Whine, whine, whine! He just couldn’t shut up.

On the other hand the supporting cast was colorful, entertaining, and added a wonderful British flair to the story. Especially since the narrator did an amazing job with the different voices, dialects and distinctions.

So, all in all Lethal White was a fantastic addition to the Comoran Strike series. And I can’t wait to see it on TV.

Lethal White – 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: 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.
