Another excellent entry in the Cormoran Strike series. I still love all the characters and how they are growing, but I could do without the elements of romance, even though I understand they are an important part of how each character is evolving. Audio version through Audible, love the performanc...

The second reading of this book is even better. Some readers don't like it to be that long. Totally understandable. On the other hand, I like the details and slowly revealing the clues. The main character is the Minister of Culture in UK during the Olympic games period. He was blackmailed and h...

LETHAL WHITE by Robert Galbraith (J K Rowling) Although very long (647 pages) this outing for investigators Cormoran and Robin is compelling. Strangled children, murder, crooked politicians, assumed identities, money and reputations, horses, and conflicted personal relationships keep the story movin...

Gratifying long and convoluted. I like that it stretches out over such a long time span. There's an expansive quality to the large cast and to the very many secrets being kept by everyone. It was fun: I never even thought about trying to solve it, I just let it flow over me, longingly observing ever...

This is a classic J.K. Rowling book - twisted plot and complicated characters with disastrous personal relationships. Why does the English upper crust insist on nicknames that sound like anthropomorphic animals from a children's book? Pringle, Flopsy and Fizzy? Really? Anyway, this book was both...

I just don't have the patience or energy to give Lethal White the kind of post I want to. So let me be brief -- this picks up minutes after the end of Career of Evil and we spend a few pages with Strike and Robin trying to have an actual conversation at her wedding. It almost goes well, but between ...

A young mentally disturbed Jimmy charged into Strike office claiming he witnessed a kiling of a child. He then disappeared. Strike was hired to find out who is trying to blackmail a politician. It was speculated that there was no blackmail but a case of this politician wanting to investigate o...

Now let's agree on something at the start of this review, I love the writing of Robert Galbraith. This is the fourth outing for PI Cormoran Strike and his now partner in crime the effervescent Robin Ellacott. At just under 650 pages Lethal White is not for the faint hearted, dip in and out, casual b...

I couldn't finish Harry Potter. It read to me like an amateur college project: it wasn't story telling, it was paint-by-number narration. It goes to show that if you tap into the right market at the right time then you're going to make a buck or two regardless of any skill or talent. With Harry Pott...

I returned to the world of Cormoran Strike with great pleasure. The writing is so skilful, making the emotions, decisions and misunderstandings of the two main characters painfully and credibly clear, avoiding simple answers to complex problems and setting the whole thing against a nuanced and sligh...
