LETHAL WHITE – Robert Galbraith (JK Rowling)

Lethal White: Cormoran Strike Book 4

After hours of reading (600 pages plus!), I finally finished this book. As in previous Robert Galbraith novels, the principal characters are  disabled war veteran, now a private investigator, Cormoran Strike  and  his previous professional employee and now partner, Robin Ellacott.

Although ostensibly a crime novel, I felt it could also be described  as a ‘romance’ – almost as much time is dedicated to the complicated  relationships between Robin and Strike and their respective romantic  partners.

Of course, the author writes beautifully but it is extremely verbose  and often repetitive, and I suspect the book needed a harsh editor –  but who would dare criticise such a hugely successful author? (Better known as JK Rowling, author of the hugely successful Harry  Potter series).

I have been pleased to see that other reviewers also found it  disappointing but it is up to readers to make that choice! I would be  most interested to hear opinions….
