Cormoran Strike #4: 'Lethal White' By Robert Galbraith Official Cover, Synopsis, & Release Date Revealed

In an unexpected twist of fate, the next Cormoran Strike novel will be at our hands sooner than we think. Yes, Robert Galbraith (author J.K. Rowling's alter ego or pseudonym) has finally announced the release date, and unleashed into the wild the cover and synopsis of the fourth Cormoran Strike novel titled Lethal White.

The best part about all this is it is to be published in two months' time, exactly on my birthday. So this means you won't find it hard to decide what to give me on such occasion. The worst part though is the cover that has become totally different compared to the design, branding and looks of the first three books -- talk about OCD! Taken on its own, on the otherhand, said cover is beautiful. I am simply wondering how it would look like in the shelf together with the rest of the series.

Check out the cover of Lethal White by Robert Galbraith.

Synopsis

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.

Lethal White by Robert Galbraith will be released on September 18, 2018.

Synopsis

The blockbuster DC Icons series that began with Leigh Bardugo's Wonder Woman, Marie Lu's Batman, and Sarah J. Maas's Catwoman continues with the story of the world's first super hero--Superman--from award-winning and #1 New York Times bestselling author Matt de la Peña.

When the dawn breaks, a hero rises.

His power is beyond imagining.

Clark Kent has always been faster, stronger--better--than everyone around him. But he wasn't raised to show off, and drawing attention to himself could be dangerous. Plus, it's not like he's earned his powers... yet.

But power comes with a price.

Lately it's difficult to hold back and keep his heroics in the shadows. When Clark follows the sound of a girl crying, he comes across Gloria Alvarez and discovers a dark secret lurking in Smallville. Turns out, Clark's not the only one hiding something. Teaming up with his best friend, Lana Lang, he throws himself into the pursuit of the truth. What evil lies below the surface of his small town? And what will it cost Clark to learn about his past as he steps into the light to become the future Man of Steel? Because before he can save the world, he must save Smallville.

Superman: Dawnbreaker by Matt de la Peña will be released on February 5, 2019.
