More Cormoran Strike novels from J.K Rowling writing as Robert Galbraith

Good news mystery fans: A fourth book is on the way in the J.K. Rowling series featuring Cormoran Strike. The new book is reportedly called Lethal White. Additionally, a BBC television series based upon the books is coming to the US this year, reportedly via HBO.

The first three books in the series are excellent and I urge you to check them out. Strike is a private investigator, a former member of the Royal Military Police who lost part of a leg in the Afghanistan war, and the son of a rock star. Rowling pulls all these threads together to make an interesting character, and her imagination and great storytelling skills make for highly entertaining reading.

From the London Review of Books, an interesting essay by Rosemary Hill about women and clothes, with plenty of literary references.

  Classic styling.
