I seem to recall that there were lots of enthusiastic postings about the three Cormoran Strike novels (Robert Galbraith/JK Rowling). Well, in case you missed the news, the fourth is out today. Just off to pick up my copy grin

Great! Cormoran Strike and Robin are interesting characters.

And the new Matthew Shardlake book, Tombland, is out next month too!

Thanks- will get my name onto local library list.

No spoilers, promise wink
I've just finished reading Lethal White, all 650 pages of it. A real page-turner, simply unputdownable. I'm so impressed by Robert Galbraith/JK Rowling. She says in her Acknowledgements that this was one of the most challenging books she's written but also one of her favourites. I certainly rate it as the best book of crime fiction that I've read in a long time. Just hoping that the series doesn't end here.
And, for anyone who can't wait to get to the top of the library waiting list, I've seen it on offer (£10/half price) at several locations, including WH Smith and Amazon. Well worth it.

Geminijen That £10 offer is very tempting....

Thanks for the heads up! I'm now four chapters,into Lethal White. I've also got Tombland waiting for me - but I must know what happens to Robin and Strike first!

I got it from library and finished it last week. I was a bit disappointed and found it too long. I’d enjoyed the previous books more.

Deedaa Tue 13-Nov-18 21:04:53

I've just finished it and loved it. Plenty of scope for further instalments.

I'm reading it now, nearly half way through, very good.

DH will be interested

ninathenana Tue 13-Nov-18 21:46:16

Oops just mentioned it.......he's already read it.

I loved the programe

I have to admit that I'm struggling past the half way mark. The story and characters are a little confusing. May have to give it up and start on the new Inspector Rebus.!

Niobe Wed 14-Nov-18 06:54:03

I had to read Tombland first! Am halfway into Lethal White now. Both are great!

mumofmadboys Wed 14-Nov-18 07:50:02

Anyone read the new Simon Serailler by Susan Hill. Have ordered it from the library.

Deedaa Wed 14-Nov-18 20:14:55

Niobe now I've finished Lethal White I can move on to Tombland!

Loved this book - but if the BBC are thinking of making this into a series it is going to need more than 2 episodes! More like 6
