Lethal White by Robert Galbraith

Lethal Whiteis the fourth novel in Robert Galbraith's Cormoran Strike series and has a complicated plot involving blackmail, murder, hypocritical far-left activists, an obnoxious hard-right Tory minister, the Conversative/LibDem coalition and an appalling family of utterly terrible posh people who have nicknames like Fizz and Pong and wear mustard-coloured trousers. And that's just the mystery element: woven into all this, we've also got the ever-present problem of the relationship between Strike and Robin, who at the end of the previous book, went through with her wedding to her childhood sweetheart Matthew, readers worldwide screaming 'Nooooo!' as she walked down the aisle.

It's perhaps not surprising, then, that Lethal White runs to 650 pages - considerably longer than the average detective thriller. Whether Robert Galbraith would have escaped the editor's pencil to quite this extent if he wasn't the alter ego of JK Rowling, I'm not entirely sure…
