Robert Galbraith is a pseudonym for J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series and The Casual Vacancy.
"Rowling's wizardry as a writer is on fulsome display" (USA Today) in this #1 New York Times bestseller. Lethal White is the fourth book in the Cormoran Strike series from the international bestselling author Robert Galbraith.
"I seen a kid killed...He strangled it, up by the horse."
When Billy, a troubled young man, comes to private eye Cormoran Strike's office to ask for his help investigating a crime he thinks he witnessed as a child, Strike is left deeply unsettled. While Billy is obviously mentally distressed, and cannot remember many concrete details, there is something sincere about him and his story. But before Strike can question him further, Billy bolts from his office in a panic.
Trying to get to the bottom of Billy's story, Strike and Robin Ellacott-once his assistant, now a partner in the agency-set off on a twisting trail that leads them through the backstreets of London, into a secretive inner sanctum within Parliament, and to a beautiful but sinister manor house deep in the countryside.
And during this labyrinthine investigation, Strike's own life is far from straightforward: his newfound fame as a private eye means he can no longer operate behind the scenes as he once did. Plus, his relationship with his former assistant is more fraught than it ever has been-Robin is now invaluable to Strike in the business, but their personal relationship is much, much trickier than that.
The most epic Robert Galbraith novel yet, Lethal White is both a gripping mystery and a page-turning next instalment in the ongoing story of Cormoran Strike and Robin Ellacott.
The Cuckoo's Calling
A brilliant debut mystery in a classic vein: Detective Cormoran Strike investigates a supermodel's suicide.
After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Strike is down to one client, and creditors are calling. He has also just broken up with his longtime girlfriend and is living in his office.
Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: His sister, thelegendary supermodel Lula Landry, known to her friends as the Cuckoo, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man.
You may think you know detectives, but you've never met one quite like Strike. You may think you know about the wealthy and famous, but you've never seen them under an investigation like this.
Introducing Cormoran Strike, this is the acclaimed first crime novel by J.K. Rowling, writing under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith.
Career of Evil
When a mysterious package is delivered to Robin Ellacott, she is horrified to discover that it contains a woman's severed leg.
Her boss, private detective Cormoran Strike, is less surprised but no less alarmed. There are four people from his past who he thinks could be responsible--and Strike knows that any one of them is capable of sustained and unspeakable brutality.
With the police focusing on the one suspect Strike is increasingly sure is not the perpetrator, he and Robin take matters into their own hands, and delve into the dark and twisted worlds of the other three men. But as more horrendous acts occur, time is running out for the two of them...
Career of Evil is the third in the highly acclaimed series featuring private detective Cormoran Strike and his assistant Robin Ellacott. A fiendishly clever mystery with unexpected twists around every corner, it is also a gripping story of a man and a woman at a crossroads in their personal and professional lives.
Private investigator Cormoran Strike returns in a new mystery from Robert Galbraith, author of the #1 international bestseller The Cuckoo's Calling.
When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, Mrs. Quine just thinks her husband 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 realizes. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows. If the novel were to be published, it would ruin lives--meaning that there are a lot of people who might want him silenced.
When Quine is found brutally murdered under bizarre circumstances, it becomes a race against time to understand the motivation of a ruthless killer, a killer unlike any Strike has encountered before...
A compulsively readable crime novel with twists at every turn, THE SILKWORM is the second in the highly acclaimed series featuring Cormoran Strike and his determined young assistant, Robin Ellacott.
La carrière du mal: roman traduit de l'anglais par Florianne Vidal
Lorsque Robin Ellacott reçoit ce jour-là un mystérieux colis, elle est loin de se douter de la vision d’horreur qui l’attend : la jambe tranchée d’une femme.
Son patron, le détective privé Cormoran Strike, est moins surpris qu’elle, mais tout aussi inquiet. Qui est l’expéditeur de ce paquet macabre ? Quatre noms viennent aussitôt à l’esprit de Strike, surgis de son propre passé. Quatre individus capables les uns comme les autres, il le sait, des plus violentes atrocités.
Les enquêteurs de la police en charge du dossier ne tardent pas à choisir leur suspect idéal – mais Strike, persuadé qu’ils font fausse route, décide de prendre lui-même les choses en main. Avec l’aide de Robin, il plonge dans le monde pervers et ténébreux des trois autres coupables potentiels. Mais le temps leur est compté, car de nouveaux crimes font bientôt surface, toujours plus terrifiants...
La Carrière du Mal est le troisième volet des aventures du détective Cormoran Strike et de son assistante Robin Ellacott. Intrigue diabolique, coups de théâtre en rafale – ce roman haletant est aussi l’histoire d’un homme et d’une femme arrivés à la croisée des chemins, pour qui l’heure du choix, dans leur vie privée comme professionnelle, a sonné.
« Le troisième volet des aventures de Cormoran Strike est le meilleur de la série à ce jour. Galbraith a inventé un serial killer qui symbolise notre époque et nous fait froid dans le dos dès les premières pages de ce roman sombre et captivant, rythmé à la perfection et scandé par une avalanche de rebondissements. » USA Today
« Impossible à lâcher – vous n’en dormirez pas de la nuit. » The Observer
« Strike et Robin forment le plus formidable duo romanesque de mémoire récente. Sur la forme autant que dans le déploiement de l’intrigue, Galbraith fait preuve d’une maîtrise à couper le souffle. » The Toronto Star
« Un bonheur de lecture à l’état pur. Le bon, la brute, des indices, des retournements de situation, des meurtres – tous les éléments classiques sont là, mais rehaussés par une exceptionnelle profondeur morale et émotionnelle. » NPR
