When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, she just thinks he has gone off by himself for a few days - as he has done before - and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home. But as Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine's disappearance than his wife realises. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows. If the novel were published it would ruin lives - so there are a lot of people who might want to silence him. And when Quine is found brutally murdered in bizarre circumstances, it becomes a race against time to understand the motivation of a ruthless killer, a killer unlike any he has encountered before.

They are a great partnership and the scenes with them solving crimes together are always fantastic, but I do not enjoy the romantic aspect that is super amped up in this one. Although I know plenty of other people love them as a pairing so you'll probably enjoy those parts of the story TL;DR - Great mystery, but I will scream if the next book in this series is this long.

It begins where Career of Evil left off, at Robin Ellacott's disastrous wedding to the sullen and resentful Matthew, with Robin over the moon at being reinstated at Strike's detective agency as partner. Strike is finding his fame is reducing his opport JK Rowling gives us her trademark intricate, tightly plotted, and complex crime fiction in this, the fourth of her engrossing Cormoran Strike series, set amidst the heady and euphoric background of the surprisingly successful London Olympics.

Strike is finding his fame is reducing his opportunities to work out in the field, and is forced into a more administrative and organising role as the agency becomes inundated with work.

He brings in other operators with mixed results when a young manic and mentally disturbed young man, Billy, seeks him out to tell of a child murder of long ago in Oxfordshire. Billy is vague about details, and though very young himself, he had been drugged, and uncertain as to the veracity of the memories that have eaten away at his sanity through the years.

Strike's interest is aroused, specifically with the detail of the pink blanket that lends an authenticity to the tale, but Billy becomes alarmed and runs away. The narrative has a running motif of horses, Lethal White Syndrome is where a mare gives birth to a pure white foal that appears to be healthy, but is fatally afflicted with a defective bowel, impeding its ability to pass faeces, doomed to not survive.

Strike gains a financially lucrative case that oddly enough has connections to Billy where a prominent politician is being blackmailed and needs to find dirt on the perpetrators. In a story set amidst the intrigue and political machinations within the Houses of Westminister, the close knit circles of the privileged classes and far left politics, Strike and Robin find themselves short on leads. They are on the scene of an apparent suicide, have emotionally fraught personal lives, and visit a dilapidated run down Manor House in Oxfordshire, home to the Chiswell family and their secrets.

There are a host of suspects that the detectives have to sift through as they endeavour to connect means and motive in their search for the truth, unaware of just how much danger they are in. This is a long read and I know this will make many readers unhappy, but for me I liked the length as I was thoroughly absorbed by this novel. A particular highlight is the depth of the wide range of diverse characters, and the state of marriage and relationships.

Through the years, I have seen at close hand amidst my circles of family and friends, various permutations of the relationships outlined in Lethal White. Della Wynn, the blind Sports Minister makes the insightful observation "I think marriage is nearly always an unfathomable entity, even to the people inside". We see the soul destroying misery of Robin's marriage, Lorelei faced with an emotionally unavailable Cormoran who sees her little more than a convenience, the dysfunctional and destructive Charlotte Ross's marriage to Jago Ross, Jasper's problematic marriages and affairs, Flick and Jimmy's turbulent relationship, and Della forced to confront the reality of Geraint's behaviour.

In personal relationships, emotions and the desire to avoid conflict can make it difficult to draw the necessary red lines, Rowling does a sterling job in exploring the nature of relationships in this book.

Rowling who is the ghostly figure here. I don't fear being ostracized for my rating. But most of my friends have given this book higher ratings than me. The denouement was not the balm that could assuage the page upon page of nothingness. The murderer's identity was moot.

Though this was a thriller or a mystery rather, I felt fear while reading it.

Fear for the time being wasted. Fear for my sanity I don't know if I will read the next book in the series. I honestly don't. This is a special one star that I've rated. The rating means my freedom of choice. My review means my gravitational enticement towards this series. I hope you understand. View all 30 comments. Oct 07, Helene Jeppesen rated it liked it. This book was a case of dumb decision-making based on misunderstandings that could have been solved if only the characters had communicated!

On the plus-side, though, this book gives you another story set in London, following Strike as he goes through painful experiences with his prothesis and late nights yet again!

But in the end, this was a book I was reading just to finish it, not a book I was reading because I absolutely needed to know how things would end. View all 9 comments. Crime, mystery, suspense thriller fans. The two work so well together. I started the series with an audiobook and have continued to do so. Strike likes intelligent women and treats them as his equal. Always a wonderful thing to come upon in a book.

The Silkworm : Cormoran Strike Book 2: Robert Galbraith:

Perhaps my hopes and expectations were too high, as I found this disjointed and lots less than anticipated. I won't be so anxious for the next in this series if there is another. If there isn't, I won't mind that so much either. View all 13 comments. Liked and disliked it in equal measure. I am tired of Robin and Matthew as a dysfunctional couple. At book four it feels like the author is milking a dead horse.

A white horse, the book is infested with them. One more won't make any difference. View all 12 comments. This book really irritated me. The mysteries, involving blackmail and a possibly strangled child, are not very compelling until the last quarter of the book. There's an info dump in the last two chapters that sums everything up. However, my major problem is that the book is mostly filler, not mystery.

That whole will they or won't they thing is tiresome. Robin is just a complete idiot This book really irritated me. Robin is just a complete idiot in a soap opera marriage.

Strike is such a cad that's it amazing he keeps attracting women. I'm tired of these people, and their romantic drama is way too much of the book. I also no longer want to hear about the pain in Strike's stump. The Ibsen quotes that start each chapter are meaningless. I know that no one has the guts to edit Rowling, but pages for a mystery is ridiculous.

I skimmed heavily. Hopefully when this book is dramatized for the TV series it will be leaner and more interesting. This should have been a magnificent book, but in the end I am giving it four stars and saying it was very good indeed. The one star deduction is for the way the book began. At first it was just so slow - not a lot happened and Robin's endless monologues about whether she loved him or not and there are two possible hims there went on and on.

And on. Then we started to get into the meat of the story and crimes were committed, people went undercover, some characters acted really badly, some had t This should have been a magnificent book, but in the end I am giving it four stars and saying it was very good indeed. Then we started to get into the meat of the story and crimes were committed, people went undercover, some characters acted really badly, some had their lives threatened and it all became very entertaining.

Rowling's greatest talent is in writing very involved and intricate plot lines which always come together so neatly in the end. She did it perfectly in Harry Potter and she does it again here. In fact, as the book ended, it was so good that I forgot my slight displeasure with the opening chapters.

But I keep notes and they reminded me so it is still four not five stars. It's a great book though and very much worth reading. View all 20 comments. Fans of the Strike series. It is another decent mystery very much in the same vein as the previous Strike novels.

If you have read those you know exactly what to expect here. Lots of characters: Galbraith Rowling likes to fill her mysteries with characters. If you are a person that is easily confused if there are lots of characters, proceed with caution.

I definitely have to stop and think about who is who from time to time. A convoluted mystery: Another thing that keeps me stopping to think is 4 stars right on the nose.

Another thing that keeps me stopping to think is that the Strike mysteries are never straightforward. There are lots of details, many interviews, tons of red herrings. These are not mysteries for the easily confused.

Personal conflict: If you are here for the tension between Robin and Cormoran, this will definitely be your jam. I think this book had the most story about their lives outside of the mystery of any of the previous novels. An enjoyable audio experience: I have done every book in this series on audio and it has the same narrator every time - Robert Glenister.

It is always nice to listen to a British accent even if sometimes he gets into dialects that are hard to understand. I can definitely feel the streets of London in his voice. I recommend this book to any who have enjoyed the series so far. Oct 05, Alejandro rated it really liked it Shelves: This is the fourth novel in the "Cormoran Strike" book series.

But despite that apparent bonanza of work, nothing has prepared Cormoran Strike for his most bizarre case to date, starting with whom takes the case to him, it is certainly his strangest and unreliable "client" to date Cormoran finds out that Billy is part of the Chiswell family, powerful in the fields of money and political influence, so he suspects that something must be behind of the erratic comments of Billy about a murder.

I waited for this book to be out with such anticipation! Dropped my other reads to get through this. Overall, it turned out to be a let down. I expected a compete blowmybrainsout read, but this was just an OK read at best. It starts with Robin's wedding The wedding part was tense enough and got me absorbed in the book right away.

But once that fizzled out, the whole Strike-Robin story took a dip down and had me rather annoyed with the pair more than anything else. There was nothing in t Oooh There was nothing in the development of their storyline that would have kept me excited.

Cormoran Strike Book 2

It was very, very predictable state of affairs. More so, I didn't feel it. It just wasn't exciting So leaving the personal stories aside, let's move to the thriller side of it.

That part was not bad. But that's as much as I am going to give it. Again, it didn't feel much of a "thriller". Some twists were good, some not so good.

I think overall, the plot felt like the author tried too hard attempting to twist and turn it all, and at times the whole lot got tangled in knots. The writing felt a bit forceful too. So, after all that waiting Yeah, it was ok, but just about.

The books are mysteries centered around the crime of murder. Strike is a veteran of the Afghanistan war where he lost a leg.

He manages to get around on a prosthesis often stressing his stump to great pain and irritation. These are positive portrayals of persons with disabilities.

Strike and his organization start out investigating the attempted blackmailing of the Minister for Culture, Jasper Chiswell Chiswell who later was found dead in what was originally thought to be a suicide. The family knew about the reason behind the blackmail but failed to give this information to Strike. Strike and Robin both are good investigators. The plot is complex and the book is slow and too long, in my opinion.

They seem to want more than a business relationship but are unable to get beyond this. Strike plays the field and Robin is unhappily married. I think this relationship is a major part of the story and it seems to keep people wanting to read more. After waiting a long time for this book I was a little disappointed.

I did not like this book as well as the others in the series.

No doubt there will be a fifth 5th book. Jul 10, Warda marked it as to-read. That is all! Sep 20, Rylee Hermit Odysseus rated it it was amazing Shelves: For added gifs, you can also check out my review here! That defeats the purpose.

Themes for Cormoran: Hence why Lorelei is simply a distraction. Cormoran as always is stable and predictable not in a bad way. I love his googly-eyed Robin moments, because that is definitely a change for him. Themes for Robin: Nothing new there, except Robin is finally awake to it. I love it! Her work is the most important thing to her, and she spends so much time trying to protect her job from the things she feels will threaten it——Cormoran, who she thinks will sack her if he catches on to her panic attacks, and Matt, who will give her grief in a mountain of I-told-you-so.

It leads to a lot of frustration, but Robin remains one of my favorite protagonists ever. Robin is jealous of Lorelei, and it affects almost all of their interactions. But their situation is complex. Robin needs time to sort out her failing marriage.

Cormoran enjoys bedwarmers, which can send mixed signals. Even though much of the novel is spent in distance, there are glimpses that give gratification. It took so long for them to realize it. The build is realistic, and you can see the pieces coming together. Political themes This book reminded how objective J. I wonder if J. With how vocal J.

Compared with the show The thing I fault with the show is that the arcs are too abrupt. The mystery is solved without the proper build-up and the slow coming together of the plot.

But the ending feels so much more fulfilling. For example, I wanted Robin to have a scene in her green dress. Cormoran and Robin go on a road trip in the Land Rover.

Until the ending was laid out for me bit by bit, I had no clue what had happened. If there are any plot holes, only Cormoran would be able to find them. Side note Lethal white refers to horsey stuff. I thought it would refer to drug stuff. Lethal white syndrome is in pure white foals that are born with defective bowels. And up against the genius that is J. View all 15 comments.
