About this deal
It’s not yet clear when the book will be published but it’s expected to be on late 2023 (or early 2024). We can’t wait to see what J.K. Rowling has in store for us in this new installment of the Cormoran Strike series. Lethal White’ was published on September 18th, 2018, through Mulholland Books. It was the fourth book in the Cormoran Strike series, again written by Robert Galbraith. It was praised by critics and was nominated for a Goodreads Choice Award for Mystery/Thriller.

I think she did this because her experience in her “collaborations” with Warner Brothers have been for the most part disappointing, not to say “humiliating” for her; see Kloves’ comments about their having to “fit the lady to the dress” in making her Fantastic Beasts screenplay into a film.

The Running Grave by Robert Galbraith review – a riveting
Cormoran Strike, a private detective, was visiting his family in Cornwall when he was approached by a woman asking for help finding her mother who disappeared in 1974. Strike and his partner Robin Ellacott took on the case, even though solving a cold case forty years old seemed unlikely. As they investigated Margot’s disappearance, they uncovered a complex case with tarot cards, a serial killer, and unreliable witnesses. In the end, they realized that even cases decades old could be life threatening.
