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.
