This book, unlike her 3 others in this series, was so boring. Way too long. Too many characters.
Outstanding book I enjoyed reading over the past few days!! It’s my favorite of the series, so I’m glad I didn’t let a few mediocre reviews deter me! I can’t wait for the next book in this series!!

I love this series and this book is as well written as the others. Not sure what another reviewer meant by “ripped bodice romance”, that’s not what this is. One thing that bothers me, although not about the book itself, but why have faces been leant to the covers? Way to ruin the Robin and Strike in my mind’s eye. I mean, the Strike from the covers is not even close to the boxer’s-profile, pubed-hair description from the book. Otherwise, loved this and can’t wait for the next one in the series.
Can’t wait for the next installment!
Read first three Strike novels and liked them but was very let down by this one....too much bodice ripping romance (snore) and a goofy plot (some serious class bashing). Save your money.
The only thing I can criticize about this book is that I now must wait for the next one. The writing is superb. The plot is really gripping and makes you think. Shanna1957
Drags a LOT. Meandering, boring for chapter after chapter at times. I enjoyed the previous Strike books, but if this had been the first one I read, it would have been the only one I read.
I am an avid reader- mainly mysteries, criminal elements-
I also have my favorite writers, among them is J. K. Rowling!
If you haven’t read any of her/his books with this wonderful detective and his sidekick, Robin, you are truly missing out!
They are the most enthralling, intriguing plots that I have ever read. I HIGHLY recommend this series!!! Lethal White had to be one of the most complicated, intricate books of the four, to have written. I can usually figure out what is going to happen and who the culprits are, where the story is going, but not this
book. It took me by surprise and I absolutely loved it!!
Thank you for a great, great read!!
Lethal White was the perfect murder mystery! I love the way “Galbraith” unravels stories bit by bit and never makes anything too obvious. The details are meticulous and make the story so special. The story was slightly slow at points throughout the first half of the book but picks up right before the start of part 2 and doesn’t let up until the end. “Galbraith” is a master at shifting perspectives seamlessly. I would recommend brushing up on the previous book in the series, because I found myself wishing I had reread it recently as I went along. Overall, the writing was brilliant, just brilliant. I was unsure of who was guilty up until the very end. Nothing is fully revealed until the author decides to expose it. Not quite as dark as the previous 2 books in the series, but still had the perfect amount of scandal, twists, and turns to keep me captivated. Hoping she continues the series and released another fantastic book of murder and mystery soon!
