Lethal White: Cover and release date

July 10, 2018.

Lethal White, the fourth installment in the Strike novels, will be out on 18 September and is available now to pre-order, and this is what it will look like:

Here’s the official synopsis for Lethal White:

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 more tricky than that.

You can pre-order Lethal White from Waterstones. They are offering the chance for readers to win a signed copy of the book, pre-ordering your copy and entering the contest.

Note that the book cover has a different style than the covers from the first three books. There is a chance that the original book are going to be released with this new style, and also could be possible that the publishers release another edition (maybe for collectors) of Lethal White in the original style. There is no confirmation for this yet.

Also, Mulholland Books hasn’t announced anything yet – so we still don’t know the cover and the release date of Lethal White in the United States.
