    From the author of The Cuckoo's Calling, Lethal White is the fourth book in Robert Galbraith's bestselling Cormoran Strike series. Galbraith is a pseudonym of J.K. Rowling, who has seen the series adapted for television by Bronte Film and Television.

    When a troubled young man named Billy comes to private eye Cormoran Strike's office to ask for his help investigating a crime, Strike is left deeply unsettled. Although Billy is mentally distressed and cannot remember many concrete details, there is something sincere about him and his story. But before Strike asks any further questions, Billy bolts from the office in a panic.

    Trying to figure out Billy's story, Strike and his partner Robin Ellacott 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.

    During this labyrinthine investigation, Strike's own life is far from straightforward: he can no longer operate behind the scenes as he once did due to his newfound fame. Plus, his relationship with Robin is more fraught than it has ever been - Robin is now invaluable in the business, but their personal relationship is much more tricky than that...
