EXTRA, EXTRA, READ ALL ABOUT IT!
J.K. Rowling has just announced that the fourth Cormoran Strike novel has been written and that she’s currently editing it. Release is set for later this year. Woohoo!
I’ve read the first two Strike novels The Cuckoo’s Calling and The Silkworm earlier and I’m keeping the third for the summer break. More information about Lethal White on Goodreads! Here is the blurb already:
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.
I can’t wait! I know what I’ll be wanting under my Christmas tree this year!
Update: release is set for September 18th, 2018
