Lethal White is the fourth book in one of the best detective series currently out there, Robert Galbraith’s Cormoran Strike books. Strike is a British war vet who returns home from Afghanistan—having lost a leg in a bombing that killed many others—and sets up a detective agency in Fitzrovia. He is soon joined by Robin Ellacott, who starts out as a temp but quickly gets promoted and ends up running the agency with him.
Robert Glenister, a British actor, is the narrator and he does the audiobooks brilliantly, effortlessly changing from character to character in dialogue (Strike himself sounds like Hagrid in Harry Potter, which works). It’s probably worth reading the series in order, starting with The Cuckoo’s Calling. However, Lethal White is our favourite so far.
