InhaltNachdem der verwahrloste und psychisch schwer gest rte Billy Knight im B ro seiner Detektei auftauchte und behauptete, er habe vor 20 Jahren die Ermordung eines Kindes beobachtet, l sst der Vorfall Cormoran Strike nicht mehr los Er beginnt Nachforschungen anzustellen und als er kurz darauf von einem hochrangingen Minister engagiert wird, der aus dem gleichen Ort stammt wie Billy und mit seiner eigenen Vergangenheit erpresst wird, stellen er und seine Partnerin Robin Ellacott sich schnell die Frage, ob es hier nicht einen Zusammenhang gibt MeinungWeil ich nicht mehr so lange warten konnte, bis das Buch im Dezember auf deutsch erscheint, habe ich es mir gleich auf Englisch gekauft und ich muss sagen ich wurde nicht entt uscht Wie schon bei den vorherigen F llen von Strike und Ellacott ist die Geschichte brillant aufgebaut, der Spannungsbogen perfekt und die Aufl sung berraschend und trotzdem absolut logisch ber den Schreibstil von J.K Rowling ist sicherlich schon alles gesagt Schon mit ihren Harry Potter B chern bewies sie ein exzellentes Sprachgef hl und die Einf hlsamkeit, die ein Auto braucht, um den Leser vollst ndig in die Geschichte eintauchen zu lassen, als w rde er sie selbst miterleben.Inhaltlich hat das Buch ebenfalls berzeugt Trotz der vielen Charaktere und der komplexen Handlung verliert man als Leser nie die bersicht Die Figuren sind wie schon in den fr heren B chern perfekt ausgearbeitet und die nach und nach aufgedeckten Motive sind absolut nachvollziehbar Besonders gut gefallen hat mir in diesem Buch die Wandlung von Robin Ellacott Verglichen mit den ersten B chern der Reihe macht sie hier eine enorme Entwicklung durch Ihr Verh ltnis zu ihrem Chef und Partner Cormoran Strike ver ndert sich ebenfalls, privat wie beruflich, und sie wird f r ihn immer unabk mmlicher in der Detektei.Die Aufl sung war f r mich so nicht vorherzusehen Zun chst kam es mir so vor, als sei sie unvollst ndig und nicht nachvollziehbar, aber dieses Buch muss man wirklich bis zum Schluss lesen, um alle Zusammenh nge zu verstehen Das Ende war, wenn auch berraschend, trotzdem absolut logisch und l sst den Leser ein wenig schockiert zur ck ber die Boshaftigkeit mancher Menschen, wie sie im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes ber Leichen gehen und sich in keinster Weise Gedanken um die Gef hle anderer machen.FazitDieses Buch ist ein absolutes Muss Wie schon in den vorherigen Strike Romanen versteht es Galbraith a.k.a Rowling perfekt, einen komplexen Plot mit vielen Figuren und Seitenhandlungen in einen spannenden Thriller zu verwandeln, der sich nicht mehr aus der Hand legen l sst F r mich bertrifft dieser Band die vorhergehenden sogar noch und deshalb muss ich f nf Sterne vergeben Lethal White is 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 but still found myself perfectly happy with the novel s length There are so many elements to this mystery, brought together with such remarkable skill, that every page was a pleasure The mystery plot alone is a remarkable achievement, absolutely packed with clues that build up to a satisfyingly neat conclusion I d defy even the most seasoned crime fan to predict fully Added to that, Robin and Strike are such utterly likeable characters, despite their many flaws, that it s a joy to spend so much time with them.As in the previous books in the series, the supporting characters in Lethal White are slightly larger than life this isn t gritty realism, but it s not supposed to be I ve said of the other Strike books that they re much akin to Golden Age detective fiction than today s police procedural thrillers, and this is evident in Lethal White too That said, Galbraith does take the step of introducing an element that is often conspicuously ignored in other detective novels Strike, having solved three high profile murder cases, is now a minor celebrity, and with fame comes unwanted attention that plays havoc with his surveillance work That fame also means he can attract a prestigious clientele in this case Jasper Chiswell, the Culture Secretary about to preside over the London 2012 Olympics but at the same time means he becomes a target for fixated obsessives like poor, delusional schizophrenic Billy.This book also has something of a state of the nation feel AntiSemitic, gaslighting Marxist activist Jimmy and his patronising, middle class mockney girlfriend Flick will certainly seem very familiar to anyone who follows left wing politics on social media The hideous Chiswells, an over privileged uber Tory dynasty, also ring true as do the observations on London s rental market, in which working adults are crammed two to a room in properties with no communal living space.As for Robin and Strike well, we know Robin married Matthew at the end of Career Of Evil, and I found the progress of Robin s marriage very convincing Strike s own relationship situation is rather less so, although the return of his unstable, abusive former partner Charlotte certainly adds interest To say any would be a plot spoiler, but there s a certainly plenty of mileage left in the will they won t they storyline that runs through the series. I thoroughly enjoyed the first 3 Cormoran Strike books and was eagerly awaiting this 4th one I was very disappointed though, because it just didn t live up to the earlier books It was about twice as long, with less than half the action and humorous content and was quite frankly boring Although I did manage to plough all the way through it, by the end I was left wondering why I d actually bothered. Eine erste Warnung an potentielle K ufer dieses Buch ist eine doppelte Geldverschwendung, denn als Thriller funktioniert er erst ab der zweiten H lfte, die erste ergeht er sich in konfusen Beziehungskisten der beiden Protagonisten Strike und Robin mit ihren jeweiligen Partnern und miteinander Nicht zuletzt deshalb w re es angebracht, das Buch zum halben Preis anzubieten.Leider ist der Plot dann zwar recht spannend, denn schreiben kann die Rowling, aber doch in Summe zu konfus und am Ende noch abgedroschener und unglaubw rdiger als im vorigen dritten Band der Serie.Daher Warnung zwei an potentielle Leser dieses Buch ist Zeitverschwendung Nei ringraziamenti alla fine del libro, Robert Galbraith JK Rowling definisce questo libro come il pi complesso che abbia mai scritto effettivamente, dopo tre libri gradevoli ma un po troppo incanalati nei clich di genere, la scrittrice ci regala finalmente un giallo solido, con una macrotrama che si sviluppa lentamente ma in maniera coerente e, per fortuna, soddisfacente alla resa dei conti, e una serie di subplot ben studiati per mantenere viva l attenzione del lettore Le 600 e passa pagine del libro scorrono via molto velocemente grazie anche a una prosa semplice se volete ripassare il vostro inglese questo probabilmente il libro pi adatto , e si fanno perdonare anche alcune forzature evidenti non tanto nella trama, quanto nelle singole situazioni La serializzazione dei libri di Galbraith, gi evidente nel precedente libro, qui diventer praticamente plateale, con molte situazioni che rimarranno aperte e in attesa di venire concluse come l ambiguo rapporto tra Strike e Robin e molti personaggi che di certo faranno la loro ricomparsa in titoli successivi.Un plauso a per la consegna veloce e nei tempi. I really enjoyed all the Strike novels and looked forward to this one.Honestly , what a disappointment , i was bored senseless even after the prologue.Over long , tedious , short of decent punchy story , thoroughly snobbish and dislikable characters.one of the worst books i have attempted to read in a very long time..needless to say Didn t finish it , couldn t care less what happened , no wonder it took her a long time to write , she obviously had little or no plan how to progress.God help us if she has 10 books of this quality lined upRubbish And thats from an ardent fan of the previous books , Shortlisted for best audiobook in the Specsavers National Book AwardsI 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 fraught than it ever has been Robin is now invaluable to Strike in the business, but their personal relationship is much, much tricky than that The most epic Robert Galbraith novel yet, Lethal White is the gripping next instalment in the ongoing story of Cormoran Strike and Robin Ellacott
