'I seen a kid killed ... He strangled it, up by the horse.'
When Billy, a distressed boy, concerns p.i. Cormoran Strike's office to ask for his aid investigating a criminal offense he thinks he experienced as a kid, Strike is left deeply unsettled. While Billy is obviously mentally distressed, and can not keep in mind many concrete details, there is something genuine about him and his story. But prior to Strike can question him further, Billy bolts from his office in a panic.
Attempting to get to the bottom of Billy's story, Strike and Robin Ellacott - once his assistant, now a partner in the company - triggered on a twisting trail that leads them through the backstreets of London, into a secretive inner sanctum within Parliament, and to a stunning however sinister manor home deep in the countryside.
And during this labyrinthine investigation, Strike's own life is far from simple: his newly found fame as a private detective indicates he can not run behind the scenes as he once did. Plus, his relationship with his former assistant is more filled than it ever has actually been - Robin is now vital to Strike in the business, however their individual relationship is much, a lot more tricky than that ...
The most epic Robert Galbraith unique yet, LETHAL WHITE is both a gripping secret and a page-turning next instalment in the ongoing story of Cormoran Strike and Robin Ellacott.
